How to Store
Your Pen

Store your pen with the refill always retracted into the barrel. This will avoid stains or leakage if the point of refill touches the paper.

Placing your pen into a pen case or pouch will protect the pen from being scratched, keeping the finish looking new.

How To Remove An INk
Stain On Clothing

Amodex is a highly effective stain remover for most inks and safe to use on all fabrics, surfaces and skin.

Never place clothing in the dryer unless the stain is completely gone as heat will set the stain and permanently damage clothing.
