    United Cans (Straight out of Melbourne Australia)

    United Cans is a Melbourne based brand, focusing on street art. The brand was born from the collaboration of writers from Melbourne and Paris.

    For the first time in the world, a brand was born from the collaborative work of two cities, 18,000 miles apart. With a joint effort from Street Artists in Melbourne and in Paris and after years of secret preparation, the secret was out in October 2011. The rest is history...

    United Cans is proudly supporting Innovation in Street Art.

    We are all UNITED...

    so what does this innovation between Melbourne and Paris mean for the average writer?

    In terms of what would differentiate it from say Ironlak? or Crunch? kings cans? Razor? Sunspots? Ultracolour? NBQ?, MTN? ETC .

    and does the fact that a Melbourne head is behind it make it reeeeally special?

    Might think about posting a link to the website than a pretty cheesy youtube clip.

    Happy to support if the product is good and pricing fair. They are the points I think you should be working on when you promo the prod, much alike Schnitz's calls above.

    I think what is cool in this, is that even if people don't speak the same language, even if they live at the other side of the world, graffiti can bring them together and collaborate on something.

    Yes, and we're all so appreciative that for the first time in history we can paint with the same brand of spray paint they do in France.

    Only thing I want to see, is that wall in 6 weeks time.

    I'm sorry but that means sweet fuck all to the consumer.

    Product quality
    Value for money


    I'll be back when you're going to discuss these concepts in detail.

    Well mate, i can only say for what i know in Melbourne. They are the cheapest brand we have here. like $4 a can, so it is pretty cool for bombing and not to bad for a piece or something else. They just have a dozen of colours atm, so there is not much to choose from. But i guess it will come. the chrome and black do the job for me and their blue is mad..

    i think it is good for us, because i think the more brands there is, the better it is for us, it increase the competition in between brands..

    Agree with the more competition bit.

    Unfortunately Ozgraff is pushing them for $5.15 a can, thus meaning there needs to be more competition in online retailers!!

    That looks like a pretty decent valve, probably better then Clash. The bad thing is, that there isn't much colors, and not many people sell them.

    its not better than any of these brands.

    its pretty average but for 4 bucks maybe you'd get a few instead of exports.

    Shop here needs to sell more than just Montanas, as well as Eckers selling something other than Ironlack...., for $9 a fucking pop.

    I'm happy to use some of the more budget stuff here and there but given that I only have access to it through Ozgraff or the Butchers it's not so fucking budget by the time I get access to it.

    Annoys the shit out of me.
