In 1976, while working as a commercial printer, Daniel Smith realized that commercial printing inks were insufficient for the needs of the print artist. Scraping enough money together to purchase on old 3-roll mill, Dan Smith began manufacturing a more specialized ink with the lightfastness and working characteristics that artist desired. Over the years, as Dan's partnership with artists grew, so grew the business.
Today, Daniel Smith Artists' Materials is a leading designer and manufacturer of thousands of art products, substrates and unique items found nowhere else. Their commitment to partnering with artists continues, as does the desire to never stop thinking like one.
