How do Printing Errors Affect a Grade ?

Hi Everyone,

Binding defects are well documented and are covered pretty well in the grading guides. But what about Printing Errors? 

These are not physical damage as such, like binding tears, they are more a production error whereby the ink hasn't been laid down properly. The grading guides are rather vague on the subject, if at all.

How does it impact on a grade? (eg. Can a potential 9.8 drop to a 9.0 because of a visible print defect? )

I attach 2 pics as an example of a comic I own where, the ink is missing in a line of tiny patches down the spine. I'm assuming this makes it unworthy for grading ?

Any feedback would be most appreciated.
