L-R: Wards Decorative Enamel Coppertone, Globemaster Epoxy Spray Enamel Coal Black, Ferro-Bond Spray Enamel Yellow, Easy Way Self Spray Enamel Bittersweet, Sprayon Black Marking Enamel.

It wasn't until I started collecting cans seriously that I realized just how many different, independent U.S. brands existed. After a few solo transactions, I met up with Slyle 133 who schooled me on the history and specifics. After seeing his meticulously-arranged extensive (that's an understatement), spray paint collection first-hand, I was hooked. It totally fuckin' blew my mind! Soon after, Slyle 133 and I co-founded Cap Matches Color.

L-R: Red Devil Supreme Quality Fat Lip Frosted Mint, Rust-Oleum Big Face Light Yellow, Illinois Bronze Wet Paint Squeeze Me Orange, Zynolyte Epoxy Azalea, Krylon Notch Top Icy Grape.

I remember sitting and scouring the cans on display--the classics like Krylon & Rusto'--which, to my surprise, were equally displayed among thousands of off-beat, odd-ball, independent brands. Many of which had the freshest looking graphics imaginable and the majority being brands that were totally unfamiliar to me.

CMC Limited Edition jumbo-sized replica Krylon cans.
Pricing and available colors on request:

Taking second place, after my collection of Krylon's notch tops, are clean samples of "odd-ball" brands. The examples shown here are, in my mind, a handful of some of the best can designs ever produced. And in terms of packaging layout and typography... it doesn't get much better. Then again, I'm a sucker for any product design from the 50s-70s.

Hand-painted Rust-Oleum can by Web, TC5.

It just seems like back then design was a real craft, using strong arrangements of spot colors that really punctuated the expressive layout, color, and typography of the time.
