I'm based in San Francisco and got a new Indian passport in Nov 2016. Since then, I've visited a couple of countries including in Schengen, New Zealand, Peru, Mexico, and Canada. I've noticed that there's always excess ink in the Schengen stamps across various airports (Frankfurt, Berlin, Brussels in my experience). As a result, unless I remove the excess ink with a tissue or boarding pass, it damages the other page.
I've seen the same with a few US stamps, but not Canada or New Zealand. The Peru stamp on my passport was also a bit "wet" and I didn't notice, but whatever.
This never happened with my previous Indian passport, which I used for Schengen, South Africa, US and a few others.
What's wrong here? Did Schengen decide to become more generous with their ink, or is this a problem with the paper quality of my new passport?
