Arteza Basic Information

The company doesn’t talk much about its history on their site, but Arteza is said to have been founded in 2015 by Mike Koshatko and Jurgis Plikaitis. The company raised $24 million in venture capital funding from Volition Capital in 2019 in order to grow their online sales business and expand their lineup. As of 2019 the company had over 200 employees.

What Makes Arteza Products Different?

Arteza is a new brand, but they have largely started to different themselves on their huge selection and high level of value. We haven’t used enough of their products to speak broadly about their quality level, but Arteza’s pens are generally in the “good” to “good enough” levels, which is enough to make most buyers happy, especially when the products are so reasonably priced and not aimed at professional users or the most demanding of enthusiast.
