    Matsui is what Ryonet's R2O line (and their previous eco-whatever line) of WB inks is made from. The matte base has fabric additives and can stay tacky on paper; clear base isn't so bad. Both work...

    Try searching for "grunge texture". Essentially you're just masking your image with white static.

    Hell, buy a membership.

    CD sleeves are tricky if they've already been folded and glued. We generally do not flood AT ALL when printing 'em.

    Let's see some pictures.
