There's a guy who posts on Craigslist occasionally about his powder coat service, I think not to far from you. I know a Powder coat place in Trenton that I won't recommend, but they might be okay for just the bead blast.

I know a really good blaster/powder coater if you are willing to go to Brooklyn. $100 for everything.

+1 on the Color Factory. They did my Technium and did an incredible job.

Thanks guys, I know about Color factory and used him a couple of times with mixed results. Never better than Ok though. Don't think I'll powder coat. I know a great powder coater in North Arlington that does some NYC builders work if I do go that route.
