I have never seen such a thing. Yikes - that's some bad smudging. Are you sure your cookies are really dry before you package them and that you haven't over-applied the airbrush coloring? Typically, the coloring dries VERY fast if not over-applied, but you might want to try waiting longer before bagging them. If you've over-applied, you can also accelerate the drying by placing them in a dehydrator on low heat or in front of a fan. Or box them instead, and then bag the box if you're worried about the box not being airtight.

Before packaging or brushing with cornstarch.

Again, hard to say. Perhaps you're trapping moisture in the bag in other ways, i.e., because the cookies are under-baked or the icing too soft and you're bagging them too tightly. Water-based airbrush coloring can get kind of glossy if exposed or re-exposed to humidity.

I can only imagine how frustrating this must be for you @KS Cookies!! I also airbrush my cookies a lot and package them by heat sealing the day after they've been airbrushed. Before I box and ship my cookies, I put each heat sealed bag (with ribbon) into an individual bubble out pouch to ensure safe travels . I have several clients who request my soft sugar cookie recipe along with my RI recipe that has a softer bite (doesn't dry rock hard so no rubber stamping on these guys).

I've never had this problem in the 4+ years of selling decorated cookies. Clients often send me pics of the cookies at their events so that I can see how they have been "presented" to guests. I love seeing that . What airbrush color brand do you use? I use Americolor and often use black. My lines remain clean, no smudging. When I use an edible food marker I will see some smudges if I touch the area where I used the edible marker.

Wish I could be more help! Do you live in a humid climate? I live in a very dry climate which may contribute to not having any smudging issues. I don't know . I wish you the very best in identifying and eliminating the issue. ❀️❀️❀️ Hugs...

She uses AmeriColor, so I doubt it's the coloring  . . . it dries pretty darn fast if not over-applied.
