Ink stains on pt lumber removal

Recently finished my new deck. I am not going to be staining it till next spring as to give the wood time to dry out . My question is on the surface of some of the boards have ink stamping (lumber specs). Most of the boards I was able to put this on the non appearance side. Some of them I had no choice but to use face up. Is there any good way to remove this as I plan to use a semi.transparent stain. Thanks in advance for any replies.

Once the boards dry out some just sand them off. Do it to soon and you'll have a fuzzy mess.
