every time i see DuBosch Jubilee Script i am tempted to pull out my parallel pen and a dozen envelopes. but, after the black ink ran out and carol assured me that it was just fine to fill the entire barrel with ink - just skip the cartridge....i have been unable to fill it. it just seems like it is going to make a mess and i dread messes so much, i am sacrificing something i LOVE...because i dread ink messes. that is just nutty. where are the people who do ink-interventions?
