Ink bloopers

Post Comment

I tossed the packaging on my bottle of Rouge Hematite soon after it arrived in the mail, but took a picture of a sample at the National Stationery Show to confirm what an eagle-eyed reader recently pointed out: “rince” should be “rinse,” of course, in the last line of the paragraph in gold.

Unlike our paper products, which are made in the U.S., our inks are imported from France, which causes some occasional “Lost in Translation” moments.

According to our product manager, Cecilia, we caught the mistake earlier this year and passed it on to J. Herbin’s French headquarters. Unfortunately, they’d just launched a reprint of the boxes and could only correct it for the next batch.

Cognates!
