I've read the responses on removing the grade stamp ink and they did not help. As the gentleman the first asked the question, it seems that the deck is already built as my was just completed two weeks ago. I can't turn the lumber over, but I do need to put a waterproofing sealer on soon. So how do I get the grade stamps off?

Grade stamps are an ink. They soak into the wood, and the softer (more porous) the fibers of the wood, the farther in they soak. I know of nothing that will remove them from a board. If turning the boards over is not an option, then about the only way to get rid of them would be to purchase more decking material and shorten the existing boards back to the next joist to eliminate the grade stamp.

Lefty is correct. He and I give this same answer at least 50 times a year. The only way to get rid of the stamp is to cut it off.
Stamps always go down. Always or cut off the end where the stamp is. Sorry about that.
