In early 2010 we started to expand the Montana product line and over the months increased, not only inventory, but also the type of products Montana carries. In late 2010 The Paint Yard, LLC took a business turn and change in company philosophy. In early 2011 we started the development of our new web site to make it as user friendly as we could possibly make it. After a lot of hard work and, a lot of lost hair by our web developer, we brought it on-line in March of 2011.
Also, in March 2011 we established the social media of Facebook (facebook.com/thepaintyard) and Twitter (@PaintyardTX) to help open a line of communications with our artist friends and customers or future customers. This was put here for all to share their thoughts and artwork and, with in mind, brought on-line ThePaintYardBlog.com in May of 2011. We also continued to develop the retail location.In the 2nd quarter of 2011 The Paint Yard, LLC expanded the Krink line and began the process of stocking the MTN and Ironlak products. With this said, we developed the second web site of TheGraffitiStore.com to serve all non-German Montana products and will continue to develop it as much of a user friendly web site as ThePaintYard.com.
In comes September of 2011 - The Paint Yard, LLC made another major decision and took full control of the Montana – San Antonio Flagship Store, one of only two in the USA. Shortly after we opened The Back Yard - San Antonio to provide non-German Montana products to the artist of all calibers. At the same time is was decided that we merge TheGraffitiStore.com into ThePaintYard.com to offer the best possible on-line sales offering not only the German Montana product but MTN, Ironlak, Krink, Sakura, Kidrobot, Books and accessories plus one of the largest, if not the largest, selection of aerosol caps.2012 gave The Paint Yard, LLC the great opportunity to live and learn from the retail stores, expand our event planning to share our artist’s talents and thoughts with the public and work with some of San Antonio and Texas finest aerosol artist. With this learning opportunity we completed our retail expansion and remodeling in the fall of 2012 and The Paint Yard – San Antonio, Boutique and Gallery was born offering some of the finest merchandise – Flud, I Wuz Here, Ironlak, Krink, Mishka, Montana, MTN, Rebel 8, Seventh Letter, Spray Ground, plus more. This also opens the doors as an outlet for our artist friends to display and share their artwork.
