Let's see if we can get a list of companies going, for people looking for someone near them to get work done. I want you to answer as many of these questions as you can. This includes any dippers in other countries (Because WHY NOT?) You don't need to be a contributing member of this forum to be on the list (you can just PM me the info) Even if you just KNOW of someone who SHOULD be on the list, let us know and we can try to contact them. This info is ONLY to send business your way, NOTHING else (I wouldn't even know HOW to use this info to send you spam)

Company Name (obviously)
Owner Name (We would like a little accountability, so we know how to resolve any issues)
Phone Number (If that is a way to get ahold of you)
Email (If that is a way to get ahold of you)
Address (so we can figure out where you are and what areas you serve)
Website (if you have a place where you show off your work)
Social Media Info (facebook page, screen name on this or other forums, other outlets)
Specialty (what is the major focus of your business)
Services Offered (anything else you do, painting, gunsmithing, ceracoat Etc.)

Then we may need to give an order to who may most likely still be in business in a year...
So lets get some real info about you.
In Business Since
Type of Tank
Activators used
Paints used
Films purchased from
Custom films purchased from
Anything else that you feel sets you apart...


I am going to enter this info into a spreadsheet for the time being, and had out the information as necessary. Then hopefully figure out how to get it on here and have people be able to add to it, and not use it for nefarious purposes. Don't forget to update your "profile" as you see fit. Basically this is your resume... lets see how this goes. You can simply copy this post and add your info

    wonder though if it's people shopping around.. playing us against each other for the cheapest price.

    Who knows, but I suspect it's feature that is a logical next step for this forum, and as always, you don't need to give a price over the phone (in fact I strongly encourage you to have the part in hand before you do.)

    @smedlin if they are doing that? Let them! Competition is a good thing. Unfortunately you're the only one that can price a job to where you know you will make a profit. You have to stop being scared if your price is too high. I'm guilty of this as well. We can't work for free, and there is no shame in turning away or losing a job. I've had some of the most excited customers fall through after hearing my price. All they heard was "custom, color matched candy clear, show gloss finish, etc" but failed to see all of that comes with a price.

    I had a guy call up that wanted an image put on his skateboard. He needed it sanded and filled, metallic basecoat, airbrushing, clear so thick that it would never be damaged, he wanted the trucks dipped in a different pattern... I quoted him a price of at least $500 but not to exceed $800 without approval. (he wanted the film to be a singular image of his design but didn't want any distortion in it, which I had no idea if we could do or not on the first attempt).

    He went COMPLETELY silent... "the board is only worth $300". I had no idea how to respond to this... all I could do was laugh. He didn't call back. I don't feel bad.

    I would have followed up with "There are these DIY kits on Ebay. The Youtube videos make it look pretty straightforward. I am sure you could do it much cheaper than I could anyway. Be sure to bring it by the shop when you are finished so I can see how well it went".

    @SkinEDippin Wait, WHAT???? Jon, TWN prints custom film? I always though I had my ear to the ground about custom on-demand film printing. But this is the first I've heard about TWN doing digital hydrographic prints. Would you confirm that, please? I need to add them to my list of recommended competitors.

    I can't wait till BigBrain announces their custom printing service. It's gonna be big! They are the standard that defines all Hydrographic vendors.

    Perhaps he meant "exclusive" prints, instead of "custom"?
  • SkinEDippinSkinEDippin Posts: 41Member
    My mistake, but when I got trained their they said that they can do custom prints to my specifications and help me thru the design and everything, they also said it was expensive. Its good to know that you can do custom prints. I'm not there yet but when I am I know who to contact!
