As long as the affidavit was printed and physically signed in ink, a photocopy or the original will both be accepted.

This is embassy-specific. So refer to the checklist your embassy sends you and if that one says "Original affidavit of support", then you'll need to provide the physical document the sponsor signed, a copy will not suffice.

A copy of it will be okay as long as it has wet signature. I verified with the embassy before my husband's K1 interview.
