OBSTRUCTED PRINTING

 

“Whenever stray material comes between the currency paper and the printing plate during a printing operation, an obstructed printing error occurs. Typically, a scrap over paper lies atop the unfinished sheet of currency stock as it passes through the press. However, other miscellaneous foreign items may be responsible for a blank area on the bill. The design void on the completed note corresponds to the dimensions of the obstructing material. If the resulting white space on the note is not detected the piece enters circulation, while the foreign scrap remains within the BEP. On rare occasions, the scrap adheres to the note throughout the subsequent printing stages. With the errant material in place, no error may be apparent; however, upon removal the void becomes obvious.”
