Frequently Asked Questions

 My pen dried out. What do I do?

Pens may dry out, or not react properly if the cap is left off too long. To reactivate:
Purple Pen: Soak tip in about 2 inches of clean water for 10 minutes. Wipe excess off the tip.
Orange, Green, or White Pen: Immerse tip in clean water for a maximum of one minute. Sometimes excessive or constant rubbing pressure may cause the end of the tip to glaze over, restricting flow of ink. This can be corrected by punching a series of holes in the end of the tip with a pin.

   What if I need a replacement pen?

You can order replacement pens by sending $1.00 to cover postage to: Lee Publications, PO Box 32120, Louisville, KY 40232-2120. Be sure to specify which pen is needed: Purple, Orange, Green, Black or White.

   How do I remove an ink stain?

The ink from these pens may appear to stain. Most marks can easily be removed with any over-the-counter rust remover. Look in the laundry aisle at your local store by spot removers.
