To follow up on your comments to getting a printed version of the Rawles Gets You Ready Preparedness Course binder/book, I would strongly recommend taking a memory stick (thumb drive) into one of these stores to retrieve a hard copy, if you don’t have a moderate capacity printer at home. The Online Printing offered by FedEx Office, The UPS Store, and others put your request into a national database and relay your order to the store you choose – the store then accesses your print job on the national data base to print the project out. While you may use a fake name, they will require a valid email address, and can see your IP address. Emailing the file direct to the Store you prefer also puts your contact onto a national database as the stores access their email through a corporate server. You will leave a massive electronic footprint by choosing either option. Having them ship the print job to you has additional OPSEC issues. When you walk in with a memory stick your file is anonymously printed and you walk out the door with possibly an in-house video recording of the transaction (usually deleted every 30 to 60 days) and no online footprint.
I am a former UPS Store owner and know from personal experience how to best have an electronic file printed anonymously. Most Stores have no video or very poor video surveillance, so your being there either never happened or is wiped from their in-house system every month or so.
Be casual, pay cash, and you will be invisible.
Thanks for all you do. May God continue to bless you and your family. – ExUPS
