    i don't think dupont makes powercoat, but i'm not sure. check out tigerdrylac and cardinal. those are two powdercoat paint companies with great product and good sites...

    Pantone won't work I asked a couple places and pantone doesn't work for some reason. My Thylacine was done using PPG Powdercoating via Spectrum and I found the color by searching a bunch of different custom shops. I've still got the Co-motion color charts which I can send you.

    good luck,
    jeff

    apparently colorlife in LI use dupont powdercoats. i got that information from this forum.

    if simply picking a pantone were an option that would be great, but i don't believe it is so.

    thanks stickerguy. i guess i really wanted to know what kind of finish options there were other than basic gloss. and are a wide range of colors offered?

    4 color process printing (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black) can nail most colors but nowhere near all of them You'll never get a good orange, red, green, silver, etc, by mixing the CMYK no matter what your dot pitch is.

    so in quick english,
    Pantone = the color of the pie in the magazine

    Nice! What's that for? Single color? With or without bead blasting and / or clearcoat? Got a website or an address for them?

    Thanks!

    $60 bucks is pretty good, where is this place? I'm just as curious as brokenrobot, does that include blasting and clearcoat?
