Sneak and peak Cardano Paper Wallet certificate

I would highly recommend IOHK to change the paper wallet’s second page to be tamper resistant for candling. Some might argue that it’s not necessary as the certificate should be physically secured.

That’s true but in that case, the certificated should not need to be folded glued or anything, but printed out to a normal paper and save it securely.

My attempt at googling that term did not end up well…

Sorry, here comes some explanation:
This wallet’s folding design and obfuscating security patterns resist “candling” – the process of shining a bright light through the paper to reveal what’s printed inside.,

But, I am not sure how Cardano’s paper-wallet is affected as I do not have any very-high-intensity light/flashlight to test with.
I would say everything behind the QR code is fine, but not sure for the rest as I cannot test it. Especially when you use pen for writing down ther rest 9 words.
