In 2012, J. Herbin experienced ink slime. They promptly combatted the problem and described how they did so in this open letter to the members of FPN.

 

This message used to be pinned, but the problem was two years ago and has been solved. Leaving it at the top of the forum creates an impression that J. Herbin inks are in someway unsafe, they are not.
