how to see your nibs numbers and names
« on: June 06, 2017, 01:13:55 AM »
 Ok, Im half blind.... I think... because I can't read my nibs names and numbers. So, what I do is take a white pencil or marker and rub it over the numbers or names.... wipe off the extra and waaaa La! you can see what your using and .... easier to order new ones if you can see it!

This is also a good use of those old wax pencils you may have lying about since most of us are stationery geeks. Rub it into the impression and carefully wipe it off leaving the wax in the name.
