 +====== Soft Ink ======
 +
 +[[i:​ink|Ink]] or varnish moderately boiled. — //M//. It is now generally termed Weak Ink. 
 +
 +The varnish of soft or weak ink is not so strong as that for fine ink; it does not require so much time and labour to distribute it on the [[b:​balls|balls]] and [[r:​roller|rollers]],​ and it more readily covers the face of the type: on these accounts, as well as the expense, it is used for common work, as it enables the [[p:​pressman|pressman]] to make more riddance; it is also used for machine printing, as the rollers passing rapidly over the [[f:​form|forms]] with their own weight only, are found not competent to coat the face of the type with strong ink.
