The History of the Color Putty® Company
Color Putty® Company was founded in June of 1963 by Paul R. Kubly. Paul was a professional painter from 1936 until 1960 when he became a salesman for the paint sundries industry. From his experience in sales and paint sundries, Paul realized that there was a need for a colored putty product to fill imperfections in woodwork and paneling. With the introduction of Color Putty, Paul was very successful in selling putty literally from the trunk of his car. He traveled 200-300 miles daily attending various trade shows promoting Color Putty. Paul's sales and marketing skills established Color Putty as a product of quality and usefulness within the industry. Originally packaged in glass jars, Color Putty introduced 17 colors in 1963 having a retail price of $0.59 per jar. Dedication to detail and quality reflected in sales. Within two years Color Putty outgrew its first building, moving to a larger facility in 1965. The move proved to be a good one as it provided much needed additional space. As the popularity of Color Putty increased, so did the cost of shipping glass jars which lead to the conversion of packaging the putty into plastic jars. Requests for a larger jar size prompted the introduction of a one-pound jar in addition to the 3.68 oz. jar. With the increasing environmental concerns of today's world, Color Putty began the development of a water-based putty similar to its current oil-based line. In 1996, waterborne putty was introduced providing a compatible solution to the many water-based sealers on the market today. Our newest item, the Custom Blending Kit was designed for contractors, professional craftsman, as well as the do-it-yourselfer. Available in both oil-based and waterborne formulations, the innovative packaging concept includes 16 jars, a color card, and conversion chart cross matching the most popular stains on today's market, all in a convenient carrying case. Today Color Putty provides the highest quality putty to both the professional sector and do-it- yourself customers with the same values and high quality standards today as it did in 1963.
