“Prinker is first-of-its-kind solution that includes Prinker device, mobile app and cosmetic gradient inks,” said Justin. “That’s why, designing Prinker required a lot of communication and collaboration with our hardware, software and ink engineers. That’s 3 different fields with their own requirements!”.
When asked about his tattoos Justin answered "I change my mind very often. If I were to get a tattoo today, I would probably regret the very next day! But if I were to get a tattoo to express my feelings now, probably it’d be a stylish lettering saying ‘I GOT IF AWARD!’'.Hey Justin! There are many more awards to get, so let’s make this tattoo with Prinker device!
