  • Display Color Availabilty

    How do you guys display color availabilty to your customers?
    Besides the web-site of course. What I am looking for, is there a color wheel, or brochure that Caswell offers for their customers.
    Thanks for info

      Re: "Display Color Availabilty"

      I have a store front that I have many items powder coated in many of the colors I stock. For the colors I don't have in stock. I have the HB Fuller color wheel along with color wheels from other suppliers.
      But the powdered items on display really sell better than then the colors on the wheels.
      When I use a special color that a customer has asked for. I always powder a small scrap of metal and then have the customer come back in to "OK" the color, before I PC their items. Ask me why

        Thanks guys.
        I kind of figured an actual display is your best selling point.
        When I get my blaster situation straightened out, I planned on coating several old and or non-items (old tonka truck bed, caliphers from my motorcycles etc)
        I know if I were a customer, I would prefer to see a example in person. Displays would be great for the consumer that doesn' know for sure what pc'ing is.

        Like the close your eyes comment, funny...

          I thought the "wrenches idea" displayed in the album was clever (small, multi-use, customer friendly, etc...).

            I am starting to do a few fender washers when ever I do a different color or have just alittle powder left of a color. A friend of mine had key chain tags made and did them all in different colors to pass out.

              Anyone have a link to that HB Fuller wheel? I think I ordered one about 6 months ago, but I never got it.

                ARGH!!! I can't find it. I am searching but coming up with a big fat ZERO! I will look on mine at home and see what the link is.

                      Thanks for all the replies guys. There are defiantly some great ideas that I would have not thought of. Since I have a few older Honda bikes laying around, I plan on coating some parts off of them to start.

                      Like the bottle idea, especially the amount of drinking that had to be had. What a great excuse "Yes I am drunk honey, but it is for the good of the business, hiccup..."

                          I sheared up a couple of sheets of aluminum and steel into 4"X4" squares.
                          Everytime I shoot a new color I throw in one steel and one aluminum plate to display the color and the shade difference between the metals.They all hang on the wall in the shop.For commercial customers I powder these plates and mail the plates to them for final color approval.
