What's the big deal with ink?

Hi Graham,

It really depends on where your signing the print, most of Roberts stuff is done in color and I would imagine without white borders, the paint type pens makes it far easier to sign on the emulsion of the print without causing damage to the print, most of my work is color and the galleries I work with do not want the mat signed, but require I sign on the lower right hand corner in a non-removable type ink or paint, the gold and the silver show up well and are non-removable.
