I did some journaling today with the "pen side" of some SU markers. Some of the writing looks like the ink flaked off around some of the letters. Anyone have this happen? Not impressed.

Contact your demonstrator (the lady you bought from). Stampin Up generally backs their products and this sounds very unusual. Mine are five or six years old and I have never had any problems.

I didn't really describe this well. It's almost like the pen "sprayed" a very fine mist around some of the letters. It didn't happen with my newer pens. I'm thinking maybe the others sat too long without being used. May have to doodle with them first before journaling on the actual page.

I've had it happen with my SU markers as well, along with other markers with that type of tip. I think it's just that type of tip that does that...the pressure of writing sometimes makes some ink spray out. I don't often use my SU markers for journaling because of this.
