Sharpie comes off of DX Plastic very well, but not at all on Star/Champ.

Silver Sharpie is an ink. Paint is totally different from ink. Look it up.

Sharpie's web site says ink. I was thinking it was like the paint pens I used to use to draw black flag bars on my grip tape in the mid 80s. Oh science you magical beast

I always steal nail polish remover from my wife and try to fade/wipe ink. I actually got 2 discs today where there was nasty plate ink and it came right off. The other had rim ink, which I was able to fade. I always for after ink, just on the off chance it wipes. I never ink my discs though, so others won't have that issue.

Not trying to troll just been curious about this for a while now
MVP uses what appears to be silver Sharpie to indicate weight on their black rims.

did not think of the Magic Eraser. I do like the Silver sharpie idea though.

You can do an over ink fade. Traded a buddy who heavilly inked a star Roc. I took a wide sharpie and went over it in a circle following the rim. Then acetone to soften/fade it. Rinse and repeat until you can no longer see previous ink. Now it is black right at rim and fades towards center. Light enough about an inch in to re-ink.

I've tried lots of methods, acetone and goof off included. The best method i have found is taking a dry erase marker, tracing the ink, and then immediately wiping it. Takes it off really well.
