As for the problem with the Memento ink, I'm not sure what is going on because that is the brand they specifically recommend for use with the SN markers. They do say that the correct cardstock really matters. I have been using my SN markers with the same
Georgia Pacific cardstock and not had much of a problem. Maybe try using a lighter touch when coloring?

You could also contact the wonderful folks at Crafter's Companion, who are very helpful. Here's the link to their website. At the top, on the right, you will find a link for "contact us." They might be able to help.

Good luck! And please report back if you find out anything helpful.
Great tip with the paper towel. I will try that myself. I use the GP card stock as well. Only thing I could get immediately but it has actually been working out just fine so far.
I agree , their C.S. is very helpful. I had a question about something and had it answered quickly.
