    For what it's worth, American documents ask you to 'type or print', as superromu says. British documents tend to ask you to 'write in block capitals'.

    Could it be a typical canadian expression ?
    I have just made a quick search on my favorite search engine for "lettres moulées" and every answer I had were from Canada...
    And what about : "écrire en lettres capitales" ?

    From the ATILF dictionary :

    Lettre moulée, caractère moulé : Caractère d'imprimerie ou lettre manuscrite, très bien écrite, qui l'imite.

    When Quebecers say Écrire en lettres moulées, they mean "Écrire lisiblement", and this usually translates the English phrase "Please print".
