    Is there any trick on how to clean fingertips from paper?

    i printed some bw photos, and some fingertips are visible from installation on kapa foam boards. Tried to clean them with water and alcholol, and nothing worked.

    later on i did use gloves, but few pictures has stains... and i would like to clean them...

    Paper will soak the oils from your hands and change the color of the ink, the only fix I know is to reprint.

    I saw "fingertips" and somehow I was imagining some kind of Halloween related post with a paper printer cutting off fingertips...

    yeah i really did have to reprint few images, but those with small stains i was hoping to be able to clean...

    My first thought was to suggest an iron.

    We used to print posters and mount them to foam boards with spray adhesive. Always hated it. Glue everywhere. Then you’d touch one of the artworks and bam. Fingerprint.

    Switched to just mounting matt vinyl to kappa and it’s been a dream since. Also vinyl is a bit easier to clean and slightly harder wearing than regular posters.

    hehe, same story here.

    but customer insisted on paper.

    but it was all my mistake, i should get selfadeshive kapa board, and everything would be much easier.
