I'm looking for some advice please.
I have a few hundred pages to photocopy and I need to anonymise the
text by blanking out names. I thought I would do it like this:
(1) photocopy the document
(2) use a black marker pen on chosen parts of text
(3) photocopy the marked page
Unfortunately, unless the marker ink is the same type of "black" and
is very opaque then the photocopy can sometimes pick up slivers of
lines which formed letters in the original text. This could depend on
which copier is used and if it needs a service. So it's not really
One idea I had was to use a narrow black tape maybe 5 or 6 mm wide
over the text.
If I needed to get such tape then where could I get it? Ideally it
would be easy to tear so I could work through these documents quickly.
Maybe a paper tape rather than vinyl plastic.
Are there other effective but quick ways you have come across?
