I'm looking for a term to describe the letters (or for that matter anything) that are not dark though readable. Somewhat faded. As I just typed, I know 'faded letters' could be an option but is there any particular term for it? Another term that comes to my mind is 'hazy letters' but I don't think it fits. It might talk more about 'unclear' letters but not due to less ink!
Here is the image of such a printout
See the letters 'C' and 'E' in the printout.
I want to build a sentence like...
Don't take any copies from that printer. It has very little ink left. You'll get [faded/hazy] printout/letters/images.
