    Finger oils are very corrosive over time so no I do not touch steelbooks with my bare hands. Depending on what was on your hands at the time or your general body PH at the time, your fingerprint itself could etch permanently into the cover art, no joke!

    What would you do about artwork. Cut it out of the steel and then slip it into the UHD BD case?

    I've seen this problem on used stereo equipment. Permanent finger prints.

    Would that stereo be the kind with the wooden cabinet? Fingerprints bleach the wood over time.

    Also have seen fingerprints etched into slip covers on used movies. So, I keep a microfiber cloth handy for that too. I handle the slip cover from the spine sides and then when I'm done I wipe away the fingerprints. I know it sounds anal but longevity is the goal and I've seen what happens if you're careless.

    Back to the steelbook issue - I've seen fingerprints etched in sucrets (throat lozenge) tins from years ago. Same kind of metal. Glossy print will not absolutely protect it.
