Letraset started way way back in the early years of man and were the first ever company to produce transfers - do you remember them? The little sheets with letters on that your rubbed onto your desired surface with a lolly stick??! As a kid, these were just, like, the best thing EVER! Since then they have become one of the most sought after UK marker companies, producing markers for the artists and illustrator sector in high demand. With 300 alcohol based marker pens in the Tria range (their best seller), 148 in the Promarker range and 48 in the Aquamarker range, these pens needn't be just for artists - NO WAY, MAN!
With Promarkers becoming a staple in the stamping corner of the craft industry, it does have other diverse uses. With Letraset shifting their production to 24 hours a day to meet the ink thirsty crafters of the world, its time to get a little bit adventurous with our fave colouring tool. So lets say a sunny hello to the LETRAJET! Wahoooo! But, you know, Letraset didn't send me this to promote, oh no. I begged them to send me it when I saw it sat in a lonely corner on their website and felt, immediately, that it would be such a great asset to the everyday crafter.
Here is a video just giving you a rough idea of its basic uses (let alone what you can do with it if you used it like a proper airbrush (see image below the video)
