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

To all of you beautiful people who ordered Liquid Shades... They're coming soon!

What’s going on with Liquid Shades?

After many iterations, we’ve come up with the best possible product that we could think of/produce. We overcame many engineering and manufacturing challenges. Yes, it took some time, but we are so close to delivering the most perfect pair of sunglasses we could create. You will be happy we took such care, trust us.

The guys just left for the far east where they will barter for spices and jade… and/or where they will inspect the quality of the shipment and make sure they get safely on the plane to California.

As soon as it arrives, we’ll be shipping it to YOU (as well as others who have ordered). That means we’ll be sending out the first set of Liquid Shades on earth within the next two weeks.

We’ve lined up 5 locally owned retail locations in the great state of California as well as one in the fabulous city of Las Vegas. 

AND ANOHTER THING... our website is up!!! It is fully functional, but not perfect. We have been receiving orders from all over the globe with little to no site management as of yet. Many more changes will be appearing on the site over the next few months as we gear up for a big spring and summer season.

LASTLY, if you have any friends that would like to purchase a pair of these amazing shades please have them do so NOW, as it looks like we will be out of stock by the time the holidays hit.  

So get ‘em now while you can. We wont get our new stock in until the spring of 2013. 

Thank you all for your constant support and love. 

You have no idea how much we appreciate it. It could not have been done without you.
