If you are having trouble with markers fading, try Mercedes Platinum
Line Markers, catalog # MER308W. We haven't had any problems with them,
and they have a very fine tip.

Hello everyone,

Two questions:
I know this question comes up every now and then, but has anyone else
having problems with cassettes not holding the print from a Surgipath
printer?  Cassettes, and not all colors, are fading drastically after
off the processor and in some cases looks like runny, blobs of ink.

We also seem to be having some problems with handwritten slides fading 
drastically after staining.  We've used Securline pens for a long time
and now they 
aren't doing so well on slides, especially the Superfrost Plus slides.
Marketlab pens seem to do a little better with legibility but smear
badly if 
your fingers are slightly wet....and they don't last long.
