I had a chance to catch up with the busiest dude in the graffiti/art ink industry KR. As many of you have noticed he has put out a ton of new product in the past few months. You can now get his popular K-71 Marker in bleed through blue, red, brown, violet and of course the unfadeable silver and black. Anyways, I was talking to him about some customer complaints about the violet and red fading and this was his response.
Hey Kerry, Thanks for the info. Yes, some of the new inks fade. It√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s all about knowing what√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s up. I know it√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s hard for the young kids coming up, but these are the things they need to learn. Most colors fade. That√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s the reality. If they only want to write on stuff outside then they should only use black, white and sometimes silver, which depending on what you use can also fade. With these new products I am hoping to expand and diversify my products. I have found that there are a lot of people that are interested in using markers outside of the graff world. I am currently working on new inks and markers. Some will work great on streets and some are better suited for indoor applications. Here in NYC there are a lot of places to write that are not in the full sun. And also I have found that a lot of people are interested in using this kind of stuff on canvases and paper. Refill bottles are on the way, but it will take time. I am working with a factory and developing product daily. But of course they have other things to do with much bigger clients than myself. So it is just a matter of time. As for all these newer brands coming out. Obviously I can√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢t control that, but they know and I know that they are all following Krink√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s lead. My products are 100% made in the US, highest quality available, and original concepts. So again, thanks for your continued support, I will have new products, colors, refill bottles etc in the near future.
