    I thought I heard if you got the paper cold the color would come back. Another thought since you like the pens so well is to make a copy or a pdf scan on your phone of important pages you want to keep readable even in the heat.

      Oh, a scan is a good idea! And I'll put my calendar in the freezer and see what happens!

      Thank you!

        This thread is a perfect example of why it’s not a good idea to jump right to the “last post” button when you have not been following a conversation closely enough.

          If you leave Frixion ink in a hot place like a hot car, the ink will fade. Sometimes putting it in the freezer brings it back a bit. A friend’s son did his math in frixion ink and spilled water on his notebook and dried it with a hair dryer. The ink disappeared. When he put it in the freezer, it came back but faintly.
          There is a notebook called Rocketbook that is set up where you can snap a pic with your phone and it saves it, I think, in a way you can edit it. The notebooks can use Frixion ink and wash clean for reuse. No need to erase- just rinse. Another version erases with the microwave. Crazy technology!

            I am switching to pencil for my grade book this year since I use it to record basically everything, not just grades. Still use Frixion for everything else.
