Hello from the William Painter family!

Yesterday was unbelievable! We had the best Kickstarter launch for William Painter ever. I would like to extend a huge THANK YOU everyone who supported us and helped our family grow a little bigger. You mean the world to us. We will be keeping you up to date on any stretch goals, production timelines and FAQ's on our Empire Kickstater page. Just stay tuned to that page for updates. 

We also did a little live event yesterday where we answered some questions about our new frame, if you would like you can see it here: link 

Thank you again for your love and support. 

Talk soon!

New William Painter KS Campaign: The Level

Hey Backers!

We hope you are doing great! It's been while! Our company, William Painter, wouldnt be around if it wasn't for your support in this campaign. This is what started it all! The quality is now second to none and we are expanding the line. We have created a new frame called THE LEVEL. It's similar to the Hook in comfort, titanium durability, and optics, but it has a frame that fits everyone and has some exciting new lens colors.

We've showed THE LEVEL to our loyal backers and many of them said this new frame is the best yet. We've worked really hard on it, they are truly exceptional and we are very proud of them. We launched a new Kickstarter campaign to help fund the production run.

We encourage you to check out the campaign and if you like it please pledge your support!

Check out the campaign here:

You'll love this new style. Here are a few photos:

THE LEVEL looks good on everyone
