I really hope that large grey background doesn't get scuffed. Still really gutted about how Tomer Hanuka's A Quiet Place variant came out. Scuffs on grey come out really light compared to black and I find them much harder to ignore.

Thought someone here said Mondo was using better inks or some fudge now that don't scuff nearly as easily.

The Crow was the most recent thing I received from them and it had the black ink that scuffs when you look at it. Probably depends somewhat on the printer.

Surprised my copy didn't have any, the A Quiet Place print was partly due to the paper stock I think - it was extremely smooth. That and the fact it was a light grey so even the slightest scuffing was almost white and stood out a lot. I had a couple of replacement copies that were all scuffed in the same places so I reckon it affected the entire run, probably from the drying rack or something leaving marks when they were stacked. I can live with scuffs on black and they are easier to remove.

Mine looked fine, fwiw, but it seemed like the same old black ink to me.

I wish more printers used the thick enamel inks that you see on Ken Taylors gig posters, has a really nice matte finish like its been hand painted. Bet it's expensive though.

True that it will only work on solid colour splits. Not true about Ruth's pixelated messes. I haven't seen any evidence of his prints coming out bad, anyone got any pics to share? Genuinely curious.

The only print of his that I have seen in person is the Him from Parasite, and it is one of my favourites.
