    I like the smudge. It would probably look better if it went all around the paper rather than just the corners.

    I agree that the plain white looks a little less unique, however in the pictures the smudging almost comes across as mold or something to me! I guess it could be considered…vintage?… but I would stick with the plain white.

    I think the smudges look cool when they are on a digital print, but the just make the paper look dirty in real life (like you were handling a B&W newspaper prior to putting everything together).

    I would just stick with plain and classic white paper without smudges.

    Also, to update, I agree with a PP that the coloring looks like mold.

    I like it without.  On the screen, the smudges look big, but on the printed proofs they look like someone could think they are just dirty.

    I commented the first time around and I will again – I love the smudges! It makes it look like antique paper.
