It's fake. It's been printed on a UV printer such as this Roland. The raised print and 'dotty' nature of it is a trait of items printed on such devices and is evident on minifigs produced by most customisers.
If forum users contributions to the finances are negligible, then why not close the forum? If our contributions aren't that important I'm not sure I'll bother going through links, especially for non Lego stuff.
I didn't say they are not important, of course they are, just that they are probably small but I have no way of knowing.
I have no plans to close the forum even if might run at a loss. It's not all about making money...
