Flaw of the Day – More Smeary Ink

Digital ImageJust last week, I had this same problem with ink getting wet and smearing on the surface of the wallpaper. It’s the same manufacturer and book …. York Wallcoverings’ Sure Strip line.

These papers are printed on a non-woven stock, which makes them (supposedly) easier to remove, because the whole strip is (supposed) to pull off the wall in one piece, instead of little bits.

It’s also eco-friendly, having no VOC’s and using water-based inks.

Eco-friendly is well and good, but I think that York ought to put some more research and development into its ink. As long as the ink was wet, I was able to wipe it off the surface of the paper. But, still, a pain.
