What works for me for Sanford and Pentel pens is to put the cap on
and tap, with the point down, several times on the desk. I have had
some sitting around without being used for longer than a year.
What brand are you using?

Does anyone have a remedy for getting gel pens to work. I just got out
a huge set that I had gotten for Christmas....and about half of them
won't work.....I've tried putting a match to the end, and sticking a
paperclip down into the gel, and blowing on the end!!!! Nothing has
worked....any suggestions???? Thanks in advance ---
