Paper Problem – Dusting and Mottle

The paper problems like dusting and mottle are really common in offset printing, which causes uneven ink absorption, poor sheet formation and plate being run too dry:

To avoid these, you can:

  1. Increase dampening
  2. Try different ink
  3. Print on the reverse side
  4. Add more packing
  5. If there is a spare unit on the press, use it to print without water.
