Uuggh! Ink transfer on stacked cards!

I just printed a run of two different cards, using the same color (a mixed pink). As usual, after impression I pull my card out and rest it on the delivery board in front of me, creating a stack. I do it the same way every time and never have an issue.

Well today I have an issue. I have 100 cards with ink transfer on the inside. Why did this happen? How can I avoid it? Is there any magical way to repair it?

Don’t over ink the Form
Add slip sheeting between the prints

Any clue why this would just start happening today after hundreds of print runs with the exact same set-up?

megahurt, your set-off or offset is operator error.
Do you have heavy coverage? Did you squize the stack?
Trouble shoot the origins of the set-off and go from there.

I cleaned up and kept printing after that with no problems. I guess I must have just had too much ink on there.
