Latest Updates from Our Project:

Marksmith Black Ti has just LAUNCHED!
5 months ago – Sat, Feb 05, 2022 at 09:06:08 AM

And we've already passed the $20k goal!

If you use Marksmith as both a permanent marker and highlighter or want to have 2 different permanent marker colors at hand then Marksmith Black Ti is perfect to allow you to tell the difference between the two colors.

Get your Marksmith Black Ti Super Early Bird special

Now you can tell the difference between your Permanent Marker and Highlighter (or another color)

Backers who pledge within the first 24 hours (at any reward level) will get 2 FREE additional black marker cartridges for a total of 4 cartridges included with your order.


No More Manufacturing Delays This Time

With the original Marksmith Kickstarter, we learned a painful lesson in the manufacturing timeline during a pandemic. Therefore this time we have pre-made enough Marksmith Black Ti's to cover the orders from the Kickstarter campaign. They will start shipping soon after the campaign ends, and you'll get yours quickly.

Backerkit surveys will be sent out right after the campaign ends, and we'll start shipping about 1 month after the end of the campaign.


The Success of the Marksmith Black Ti Campaign Will Help Make the Marksmith Ultra-Fine a Reality

Marksmith Ultra-Fine is the most requested new product. Everybody wants one. 

Since our goal is to deliver quickly on new campaigns, we are starting the manufacturing early.  Additional funds raised from the Marksmith Black Ti Kickstarter campaign will be used to pre-make the Ultra-Fine version before we launch that campaign. That means that the more we raise with the Marksmith Black Ti Kickstarter, the faster we can launch the Ultra-Fine campaign, and ship it quickly after the Ultra-Fine campaign is over.

I have been pocket carrying an Ultra-Fine version (prototype) next to my Fine for over a year and it is awesome!

Marksmith Black Ti Launching Feb 1 @ 9AM EST
5 months ago – Tue, Feb 01, 2022 at 12:08:21 AM

Marksmith Black Ti with DLC coating is going to be launching on Kickstarter at 9AM EST on FEB 1st!

Backers who pledge within the first 24 hours (at any reward level) will get 2 FREE additional black marker cartridges for a total of 4 cartridges included with your order.

Make sure to go to this preview page and click on "Notify me on launch" to be notified when the Kickstarter campaign launches.

You'll get to choose between a matte black finish and a satin finish. They look so good, I couldn't choose only one finish, so I decided to make both and let you choose. You'll be able to select the finish in Backerkit.

Premium No-Logo Version

In the original Marksmith Kickstarter, there were no logos on the images, so we decided to leave them out for backer rewards. All Marksmiths post Kickstarter have the logos.

Branding the MARKSMITH is important for us to create a sense of identity. It's like signing my artwork. However, we have decided that we will offer a no-logo version for a premium. In other words, if you want my artwork without my "signature", you can have it, but it will cost you... The premium version is completely blacked out, without any logos disrupting the deep, beautiful darkness.

Choose the "MARKSMITH Black Ti DLC PREMIUM (No Logo)" reward level if you want yours like this.

Premium no logo Marksmith

Buy Marksmith on Amazon

I've also restocked MARKSMITHs on Amazon with Prime delivery, so that's another option for quick shipment.

MARKSMITH REFILLS

If you need permanent marker or highlighter refills for your MARKSMITH, they are available here: https://www.soulbuilt.us/collections/marksmith

Marksmith refills are available here...

MARKSMITH Highlighter

If you want to add a Marksmith Highlighter to your collection of awesomeness, you can get it here.

Marksmith Permanent and Marksmith Highlighter are the same titanium body with different cartridges. Although the permanent ink and highlighter cartridges are cross-compatible, it's more convenient to have a dedicated highlighter instead of swapping cartridges all the time. Highlighters can also be personalized with an engraving.

It's also a highlighter!

CUSTOM ENGRAVING

If you want a custom engraving (Not available on Amazon, only available on Soul Built webstore), please also add the custom engraving item to the cart and enter the engraving details in the "ORDER NOTES" during checkout.

Something HUGE Coming Next Week!

Last Day for...
6 months ago – Fri, Dec 17, 2021 at 01:42:00 AM

Today is the last day to get your MARKSMITH orders in for the holidays (USA based domestic orders only). I'm also offering a free upgrade to Priority USPS shipment for domestic Marksmith orders, which should only take 2-3 days to arrive. Backers get 15% off at our Soul Built webstore by using the coupon code "edcHOLIDAYS" or click on this link which will take you to the Marksmith page and auto-apply the coupon code in the checkout.

MARKSMITH Highlighter

The highlighter version is getting a surprising amount of love. Honestly, I didn't even know anyone used highlighters anymore. If you want to add a Marksmith Highlighter to your collection of awesomeness, you can get it here

Marksmith Permanent and Marksmith Highlighter are the same titanium body with different cartridges. Although the permanent ink and highlighter cartridges are cross compatible, it's more convenient to have a dedicated highlighter instead of swapping cartridges all the time. Highlighters can also be personalized with an engraving.

It's also a highlighter!

International Orders

International orders can arrive in 2-3 days via DHL Worldwide Express, but you will have to select "International Express" which costs $40 to ship. The standard international economy is too slow to arrive for the holidays.


How's it going?

I hope that all is well and you are enjoying your Marksmith! I've been taking care of backers who have contacted us about shipping issues or incomplete surveys. If you have an issue that we haven't communicated about yet, please let us know.

I'm still receiving inquiries from backers who have not yet completed the Backerkit shipping survey. If you haven't received your Marksmith or a shipment email with tracking, then it is likely that you haven't completed the survey. Please let us know and we can send you the link to your shipping survey.


Happy Holidays!
