What is dry printing? How do I recognize it? How does it compare to regular printing?

re: Dry Printing

Stamps are a little larger, usually about 1/4 to 1/2mm.

The difference results from "wet" printing stamps being printed on damp paper (it wasn't really wet). This allowed for a better impression on engraved stamps. However, the paper shrinks as it dries, resulting in the smaller size stamp.

re: Dry Printing

Also, with wet printing, the ink bleeds into the paper, where with dry printing, the paper generally remains white.
