Karin Markers Are Here!

You’ve seen them on social media, and now they’ve arrived at Paper Anthology: 72 vivid shades of Karin Brushmarker PRO, direct from Poland, available open stock in-store and online. There are 10 amazing Neon shades, 9 beautiful greys, colorless blender pens, and an entire rainbow of rich, juicy, blendable colors that literally cover the entire spectrum! We’ve made a swatchbook, so you can see the exact color of each and every one.

Karin Brushmarkers PRO contain 2.4ml of color each. They were produced with ‘liquid ink’ technology, which means the intensity of color lasts through the last drop. They are twice as efficient as traditional filter markers. In addition, they are equipped with a Japanese super durable and flexible nylon tip. They contain non-toxic paints with an intense dye based color. The colors can be mixed, lightened and obtain tonal transitions by touching the ends of two different markers.

Prepare to be IMPRESSED!

The BetterPress Letterpress System by Spellbinders is now available in-store and online at Paper Anthology. The BetterPress is an innovative way to achieve the elegant look of letterpress technique without all the mess. It’s an easy-to-use system that produces professional stationery style projects with detailed impressions that can be felt to the touch. This exciting new system was designed to be used with your Platinum or Platinum 6 Die-Cutting & Embossing Machine, and is also compatible with many other die cutting machines including the Sizzix Big Shot.

There is, of course, a class on its way for those who’d like to TRY the BetterPress before committing; but truly, there is almost NO learning curve involved, the system is incredibly easy to use, and a little bit addictive… in the best possible way!

In the meantime, check out the introductory video from Spellbinders (below) to see the system in action. Additional press plates and inks will be arriving at Paper Anthology in about a week, but as you can see, there’s already a nice collection in stock. In the online store, BetterPress has it’s own category, making it easy for you to see our current selection of plates, inks, papers, accessories and more. 

Below is a sample card, colored with Karin Markers.
