What’s the Difference between Waterproof and Water Resistant Ink?

A common misunderstanding that people have is they consider waterproof and water-resistant inks the same. However, there is a slight difference between the two.

Waterproof ink is the type of ink that does not get affected by water. Your writing will stay clear and distinct just as it was before any water damage occurred.

Water-resistant ink can resist water damage to a certain degree. While the ink on the page may become smeared or blurred, your writing will still be readable, underneath.
