If you're dealing with ink smudging on parchment paper, here are some easy fixes:

Choose the Right Ink: Make sure the ink you're using works well with parchment paper. Some inks just don't stick right.

Let It Dry Properly: Give your prints enough time to dry completely. This helps the ink set and reduces smudging.

Tweak Printer Settings: Play around with your printer settings. Sometimes adjusting the quality or paper type setting can make a big difference.

Pre-Treat the Paper: Consider lightly spraying or applying a fixative to the parchment paper before printing. It can create a protective layer that helps prevent smudging.

Handle with Care: Be gentle with the printed parchment paper until the ink dries completely. Avoid touching the inked parts too much.

Give these a try, and hopefully, your parchment paper prints will come out smudge-free! Let me know if you need more help.
