Such approval may be revoked at any time by the administrator when he finds the ink furnished to be inferior to that approved. The administrator shall furnish to each department and office of the state, and to each custodian of public records and each recording office, a list of the brands or manufacturers of ink which have received his approval. Any custodian of records who uses, or causes or permits to be used, thereon any ink not so approved shall be fined not more than one hundred dollars.
