"Here's my review of the Wacom Cintiq 12WX along with my comments about the SmudgeGuard®." - Brandon Robinson of Garfield, NJ
"I absolutely LOVE my SmudgeGuard®. My hand glides across my tablet perfectly, no more messed up lines and constantly having to undo/redo my brush strokes. ;) That used to be such a big problem, even with my past tablets, but with my Cintiq, not only does it help reduce the friction, but it stops nasty smudges across the screen when I'm drawing, so less cleaning it too. Here's a video I made of Inking/Coloring/Shading someone else's sketch." - Zac R. of Canada

LAYERS MAGAZINE produced a helpful booklet for Wacom users titled, "101 WACOM TIPS", where it was distributed at the Photoshop Convention in Las Vegas. One of my customers named Ken Hoard, was kind enough to mail me his copy and told me tip #47 mentioned the SmudgeGuard®. Needless to say, I was very ecstatic! Ken, thanks for sending the booklet to me! I really appreciate it! =)...Jeannie Lit
"Hi Jeannie, I have been a SmudgeGuard user for the past 7 years and I can't imagine working without it. Above is a picture of me using it which is also on the front page of my website www.taylorsterling.com. Thanks for the great product."

"Hi Jeannie, I'm still using and recommending your great SmudgeGuard 2. See my two pics!:) I love how I always forget that I'm wearing it. I found myself accidentally wearing the glove several times in public because I forgot about it. It is also quick drying after washing and ready to use again overnight. I just don't feel comfortable and complete when I'm not wearing the glove and working on the Cintiq. It just doesn't feel right."
- Frank Robyn-Fuhrmeister of Germany at http://robyn-fuhrmeister.de/
- Marco Martins of Portugal
"This image is to thank you for such a wonderful product. As a Wacom tablet user with a screen protector, one of the most frustrating challenges is creating smooth lines. Previously I was reduced to using tissue paper, eye-glass lens cleaners, thin napkins, whatever would allow my hand to travel freely across my tablet. I just happened to stumble upon your product and I’m so glad that I did. The Smudgeguard not only assists in my range of motion, but it’s also comfortable to wear, it breathes so it’s actually cooling to my hand and can be folded to store in a small compartment in my carry case. (Not to mention it’s an attention getter!) I’ve been telling everyone that I know about your product from my website to twitter and instagram; I plan on ordering several more as backups for the office as well as home. You’ve really changed the way that I create. Thank you again and I wish you absolutely the best of success with your phenomenal product."
- Kurt Gangluff
"I think the SmudgeGuard2 is the essential glove for Wacom Cintiq users, and it totally rocks for the simple fact that it does what its supposed to do (really well)! This thing is built for function and comfort, I've never felt as if it was in the way, its just that helpful. I've had my Cintiq for awhile now, and I've never used it without my glove.
- Roderick A. Franklin, Owner of SDGT Studio
"Got my SG2 glove! Not today, but a few days ago. It took about 15 days and they passed quickly, and this is my first international (non-digital) thing I've bought! :) I wanna say "Thanks!" for your quick responses, for providing information and of course - creating this amazing glove. It now glides smoothly and I have no more sticky hands ^^ And because drawing is my hobby, I'm sending you "thanks" in picture form. Nothing serious :) Just wanted to show how I love your product. Good luck to you and your business!"
- Teymur Hasanov of Azerbaijan Republic
"Hi this is Jess from Tzess Von Art | Art Of Jess, My main work is high quality handmade drawings. My work demands long hours of details, and many layers of pencils. Recently, I was looking for a light glove to avoid smudges and friction and came across SmudgeGuard®. I read all the reviews so I decided to give it a try. When I ordered, I noticed that my address was wrong so I immediately contacted SmudgeGuard® to make the change and I got my response back in less than 3 minutes, which was just amazing as it was an urgent matter. The glove suits me perfectly and the size was just right (thankfully.. SmudgeGuard® had a metric chart). Even after wearing it for many hours, the glove never felt sweaty neither uncomfortable. It is lightweight, soft to touch and to wear, and you don't feel it when you're working. Seams are comfortable too. Now, I won't draw without wearing it. I give it an extra point too for helping my thin wrists, (often my carpals (bones) can be impacted or rubbed against the working table). Now, with the SmudgeGuard®, that doesn't happen anymore. I feel my wrists touching the soft material instead. When I washed the glove, the color of the glove stayed; which means great quality when nylon is being treated and colored. The Verdict: SmudgeGuard® makes high quality products. In all ways possible, the gloves are the best choice for any artist who wants to avoid smudges, friction, and more..."

"Since I got my Intuos 4 tablet, everything went great... until the surface started becoming sticky when my hands started sweating. This was a huge problem, especially when your tablet is really big. When I found the SmudgeGuard®, I knew this little glove was the answer to my problem. And it was indeed! With the SmudgeGuard®, all of my illustration work became easier and the quality itself improved. Now my hand has no more friction with the tablet surface. It's truly one of the best investments that one digital or traditional artist can do! I couldn't be more happier with the SmudgeGuard2 (SG2). Here are two pictures of myself using the SG2 in my office. This little glove is truly incredible!"
- Mauricio C. Oliveira - Digital Illustrator of Brazil
"Congratulations for this brilliant idea, a new age of creativity is coming for me!"
- Sylvain Gautier of France
"This drawing came to life because of your simple yet genius glove."
- Emmanuel of Seguin, TX
"I got the original SmudgeGuard®, seeing as how it was a big improvement on my hand motions and sliding across the tablet screen. Before, my hand was always touching the Cintiq's screen. It would get all hot and sweaty, I'd even try to put on gloves. That didn't work at all! But one day, when I was browsing the web, I stumbled upon SmudgeGuard®. I bought it, and surprisingly, it was comfy, light, and smooth. Perfect for my digital and traditional work. Then came back to the site a week later to find out she had a new glove the SmudgeGuard2 (SG2)! Being a fan of the original SmudgeGuard®, I just couldn't resist buying the two-fingered glove. Ever since, my lines have been ever so smooth and smudge less. I'd just like to thank Jeannie for making the sleek and smooth glove for all artists!"
- Christopher Richards of Xaramic Studios
"After losing my first SmudgeGuard® I was in distress: working on a tablet with a bare hand was out of the question, especially in warmer climate nowadays, so I was frustrated and unproductive for a week. I ordered a new one right away, the SG2 this time since I also wanted to try something new. I received it Friday, and man... Oh man! It is quite awesome. You see, when you write/draw/work on a tablet you use at least a finger for support, the pinky, but I use two. Maybe I put too much slack on the wrist, but who cares? I got both my pinky AND my ring finger protected now. Or the other way around: my tablet is protected from the friction of those two supporting fingers. So I can draw smoothly and more comfortably than ever. Picture above: A typical way of how I use my (small) Wacom Intuos4. I wear a size S of the SmudgeGuard®, it fits nice and snug and it's very breathable. You can almost see the wear of the tablet surface by judging the reflection of my hand on it. That's not supposed to happen if it's in pristine condition but having such a slick surface only causes skin to sweat and produce oil on it. I'm sure you understand now why using the SmudgeGuard is needed to prevent all that mess. If you use a tablet, buy a SmudgeGuard®! You will not regret it."

The title of this painting is called "Oh Yeah!". This painting represents what I feel when I'm using SmudgeGuard®! I drew myself wearing the SmudgeGuard® and making an artwork, and talking to myself: "Oh Yeah! It's COOL! I'm crazy about it!"

"Wow, I’m really surprised the shipment was delivered 3 days after purchasing. My first positive experience with a national shipment from the U.S. to Germany. And the SmudgeGuard®? Perfect, especially on hot summer days...my hand slides smoothly over my Wacom Intous."
- Nicolas Reiser of Germany
"It's a pleasure to tell you that I have completely adopted SG! After a long period of testing, it's a really cool tool which allows me to draw curves smoothly when I use brushes for inking. Not only does it work very well in avoiding pencil smudges but my hand doesn't stick on the paper like before : I love it! Here are some photos during the inking process. :)"
- Steeven Labeau of France at www.steevenlabeau.net
"I was very pleased to use my new Wacom Cintiq but tired of sweat on the glass of the LCD… With SmudgeGuard®, no more problem! It’s excellent, perfect to work on this fabulous material with SmudgeGuard® which permits to slide on the Cintiq without a trace! I love SOOO much my work! ^^"
- Patrice Khal of France
"SmudgeGuard® is a perfect tool to work with the Cintiq pen tablet! Thank you for the simple but perfectly fitting idea!"
- Gilles of France
"I finally got a chance to set up the Cintiq and try out your glove. Works great! ha-your SG-Glove fits like a glove! :)"
- Mike Warren
"I’ve been using my SmudgeGuard® for a couple months now, and I absolutely love it! My hand no longer sticks to my Intuos and I can relax knowing I don’t have to pull my hand up every two seconds. I use the SmudgeGuard® for traditional sketching as well, and it saves me from having to wash my hands to get off the graphite and ink! I recommend SmudgeGuard® to any artist who’ll listen to me!"
- Nathan Shields - Artist at http://osirun.deviantart.com
"I'm a cartoonist and a lefty so when I read about the SmudgeGuard®, I figured it would be perfect for me as I've been a smudge-magnet since birth. Anything that can cut down on the smudges on my hand and paper is a welcome invention! So I just thought I'd send you a letter to say the SmudgeGuard® is awesome! I even did an interview with the local ABC San Diego Affiliate in which I prominently featured the guard because I believe it's a fantastic product. I hope you're getting lots of orders!"
- Jason Kruse - Animator and Creator of "The World of Quest" at www.jasontkruse.com
"The gloves fit well and I feel comfortable wearing them. The stitching is precise and promises a longtime usage; it’s really solid workmanship. The gloves allow smooth movements when drawing or writing, no matter if I do digital painting on my Cintiq or write or paint on an ordinary piece of paper. Altogether, I am pleased with the SmudgeGuards. It’s definitely a lot better to work with them than with my old cotton gloves. A brilliant invention, thank you very much."

"I purchased your simply elegant product knowing how great it would be
to glide across the screen making confident lines in every direction.
But when I finally put it to use with my Cintiq I had a hard time
imagining drawing without SmudgeGuard®.
- Matthew David - Designer/Illustrator
"It's a great product! Now that I've gotten used to it, I can't imagine drawing without it!"
- David Noonan - Artist at www.powerblob.com
"I got your package today and I already love this glove! It's very comfy and seems to build more tolerance against the tablet's heating. Also slides easier on the screen and I don't have to worry about more smudging. I really really love this product. :) I think it looks very cool too."
- Marissa Rivera - Fantasy Artist at http://pearlphoenix.deviantart.com
"I tried out my SmudgeGuard® and I must say, there is nothing like it. My hand glides smoothly over my Wacom Cintiq unlike any other solution I have tried. My lines are much smoother as I don't have to deal with the friction that is created when drawing bare-handed or with a homemade glove on the plastic surface of the Cintiq. I also love the simplicity of the design, I almost forget I have it on!"
- John Berry - Anime Artist
"The SmudgeGuard® rocks! It provides a comfortable, low-friction barrier
- Jeremy Anderson at http://jerisbrisk.blogspot.com
"SmudgeGuard® is an excellent addition to my art arsenal and is a must for hot days when my hand wants to stick to the surface of a Wacom Cintiq or Intuos3. It helps glide smoothly and looks good doing it. It's a clever, well designed invention. I bought one in burgundy which matches the stone in my ring and enhanced it. Does all that additional color help my artwork? I don't know, but either way it'll look sharp as I work to improve with this well made glove!"
- Lynn Cartwright ~ Channel Islands, CA
"I got my Wacom, and I have been using the SmudgeGuard® on it.
- Jade Ingsley of the United Kingdom
- Pictures Courtesy of Fred Townsend of Haddonfield, NJ
"SG really helps manage friction on my Wacom, a huge bonus for long,
sweeping strokes. Even smaller motions take less effort, and are more
comfortable to do because I can move my hand when I need to -- without
feeling like SG is slippery... so it's easy to keep my hand still
when I need to. But most of all SG helps me work more comfortably over a
longer period of time since I'm not worried about grunge and sweat.
- H. Jones at http://www.cfxmusic.com
"I got my SmudgeGuard® last week, as a birthday gift from my mother. It works great! It slides easily over the paper, and it fits comfortably. Snug like a second skin. Along with not smudging when I have it on while coloring, I can also use it to quickly pick up any colored pencil residue from the lead, before it gets ground into the paper by the pressure I use to color. This also keeps me from having to moan and groan later, because the colored pencil lead no longer sweeps across the paper, miscoloring it, when I move my hand across the surface. It definitely saves alot of mishaps and time. As you said, it is good for sketching, inking, even coloring. It also allows my hand to smoothly move over my 8x6 Graphire Wacom Tablet. An excellent product. I will definitely be using it for artist alley's at conventions, as well as regular day to day use on personal art."
- Angela Knapp - Anime Artist/Illustrator
"I love the SmudgeGuard®. It does everything you advertised that it would do. I'm extremely heavy handed with my sketches and I scribble and jump around the page a lot. I also work under a hot lamp which causes my hand to perspire. A typical sketch without using the SG looks something like this:
Notice that most of the right side of the page is faded and smudged. A real pain to have to keep going back and retouching the smudged/faded parts.
When I finished with this sketch, my hand looked like this:
With the use of the SG now, a page looks like this:
Crisp, clear lines. No smudging at all, only my scribbles. And clean up at the end of a sketch is as easy as removing a glove. The SG is a great buy and a great drawing tool."
- Jason T. Newman
"I received my SG today. It fits perfectly and is very comfortable,
breathable, and slides smoothly right across my screen while drawing
on my tablet PC. It feels great to have another useful tool for my
arsenal that helps me step up my game :) The quality is held to high
standards. The customer support is top notch and shipping is very
- Chris Dill - Flash Animator and Web Designer
"I received the glove and it's even better than I expected. Great design and idea. Every calligrapher should have one of these! It protects the paper from all oils that naturally occur on the hand. Check out the video below where you can see I'm wearing the SmudgeGuard® on my right hand."
