Wacom now offering promotional discounts to the tattoo community!
In the days leading up to the big Guy Aitchison / Russ Abbott collaborative event, Evolution, we've established a partnership with the technology company Wacom. Many of us have long been using Wacom tablets for doing art and other activities at our computers, and a few of us in the tattoo industry have gone so far as to purchase one of their deluxe Cintiq tablets, which gives you a large touchscreen that you can draw on directly with a stylus. So it's exciting news that Wacom has developed a smaller and more portable version of this tablet, known as the Cintiq Companion, which can be disconnected from your computer and used on the fly anywhere. Needless to say, Russ and I are excited to give these new tablets a spin around the block this coming week.
Wacom has offered us two of the new Cintiq Companion tablets to give away as raffle prizes to anyone purchasing tickets to the collaborative webinar. If you have already purchased tickets, your name has already been entered in the raffle, and we will be drawing names on the 22nd and 23rd of this month to announce the two winners. On the 22nd, you can view the free all-day webcast at www.TattooNOWtv.com, where you can submit your questions for Russ and I to answer. We will be demonstrating the tablets, along with the new Abbott Color wheel. Then, on the 23rd, comes the paid part of the webinar, where we will be going deep into technical detail as we work on an epic leg sleeve project. Tickets are available now at tattooeducation.com, and purchasing a ticket will automatically enter your name in the raffle.
In addition, Wacom is offering a promotional code for the tattoo community for a limited time. If you purchase one of their Companion tablets through the wacom.com e-store you can save $50, or $100 off one of their full size Cintiq tablets... Model DTHA1300L is only $999 with the promotional code, which is a great deal for a tablet this versatile. Just enter promotional code TATTOO_GRWEB during checkout and the discount will automatically be applied toward your purchase. This code is valid for two weeks only, so take advantage now!
Thanks, and I'll keep you posted!
