    Looking for a term that rely with Newspapers

    Hello all,
    I look for a single term that means to smear, blur, smudge or dirty printing in Newsprint (I means the overprinting, blurred text or spreaded, bad colors, etc.).
    Please any help and thak you so.

    You can't use "smudge"? Why not?

    I regret to say that in 45 years in the publishing business, I never heard this term. I think it is really obsolete, and that you will be better to keep to "smudged", "blurred", or "over-printed".
