Montana Colors - A History of Graffiti and Art Supplies
While Montana Colors - the spray paint / graffiti supply company was founded in 1994, the inspiration goes back to 1987. The founder of MTN Colors, Jordi, saw his first graffiti mural in Barcelona and that image was seared into his mind. Montana Colors grew and continued to evolve, developing new colors, introducing the infamous spray can color donut. During this period other foreign brands tried to acquire Montana Colors / MTN Colors but after being rebuffed - created their own brand to confuse the market. Even though this deceptive business practice caused some confusion in the market, Montana Colors / MTN Colors has persevered and maintained it's position as the original graffiti artist spray paint / supply manufacturer. Highly sought after worldwide, today Montana Colors / MTN Colors has a wide range of product lines from multiple lines of high end spray paint, to eco-friendly artist materials, to markers and accessories. Most recently Montana Colors / MTN Colors opened a USA warehouse and direct to consumer website store at sprayplanet.com.
MTN Colors or Montana Colors?
We get this question all the time. Is it MTN Colors or Montana Colors? The answer is - BOTH! Montana Colors originally started out being called just “Montana”. Due to some underhanded business tactics by a German Multinational Corporation that has tried to deceive the market by utilizing the name Montana to confuse customers, Montana Colors made some adjustments to the name to better clarify. These changes include usage of "MTN" and the word "Colors" after either MTN or Montana. So if you are questioning whether you are using the original Montana graffiti supply brand, just look for MTN Colors or Montana Colors. Anything else is an imitation.
