If there are any white bits showing along the folds, run an ink stamp pad along the marks to cover them up. Note: Only do this if your prints are water-resistant otherwise you risk smudging the design. Prints are water-resistant if you printed using a laser printer, or an inkjet printer that uses water-resistant inks. If you’re not sure what type of inks your printer uses, check your user manual.
