clogged (dirty) typeface

clogged (dirty) typeface
   Over prolonged use, the typeface becomes filled with lint, dirt, and ink, particularly in letters with closed loops, such as o, e, p, and g. If this condition is allowed to continue without cleaning, the printed impression will actually print with the clogged areas shaded or solid black.
