Works. Confirmed for me. Thanks!

"Gkohler"-it only takes 1 idiot to throw that much cash at something for it to instantly be "worth" that much.
"Celsius"- Welcome to Expressobeans, bitch.

Is this only good for screen prints, or could it help a giclee?

Fine then! (Thanks)
Lesson learned: Don't leave your art unattended at Michael's. Even if it's only a $35 giclee and you're just looking for a standard frame.

Fine Folks of EB,

I want to get your advice on a similar issue before diving in. I got a longtime ISO the other day - Phish's print from Charlottesville in 2009 - and it came with some scuffs from the shipping, I believe. Here's a couple pictures:

I want to try something to get them out, and the leading candidates from this thread seem to be the kneadable eraser and the "water trick." But since I've been looking for this one for so long, I'm skittish...thought I might lean on some of you experts for some advice first. What would you recommend?

All advice appreciated; will not hold you accountable :)

James
