Can you give me a ball park price?

There are a lot of factors involved but I’ll do my best to provide a competitive estimation for you based on your requirements.

Can you touch up/repair artwork

Unless it’s my original artwork I would recommend you contact the original artist/painter first out of courtesy and respect.

Can you paint over or work on my existing paintwork?

I can work on top of existing finishes as long as they are in good condition (factory is usually best). If you have had an item re-finished you might have some underlying issues to be considered. I always consult with a time served body shop specialist if unsure.

How long will my paintwork take

I can work to a deadline as long as it is realistic, but I won’t compromise on quality. If you have a specific date in mind for a project to be completed by I will try my best to deliver on time. I try to turn a small project around in 3-4 weeks (helmets/guitars/bike frames), bigger projects may take a little longer or if they need to be in/out the body shop more than usual.

Do you do body work, insurance jobs or restoration

I specialise in design and artwork, I have the use of a reliable local auto body shop fitted out with a state of the art booth, who undertake most body work on larger projects including repair, primer, base coats, lacquering, and machine polishing – If you have a dent or need some body work doing before artwork – it’s not a problem.

Sorry, I don’t take on any insurance jobs.

Can I pop in for a chat or visit the studio

Of course, but by appointment only. Please give us a heads up so I can make arrangements and get the kettle on. Drop me an email or text message to arrange an appointment.
Sorry no walk-ins.

How do I get the ball rolling?

Hopefully the first part (and the hardest) is you have an idea of what you want doing, the next step is easy – just get in touch.  We can then discuss your project in more detail and I can provide an estimation.

What forms of payment do you take?

I accept Cash, Cheque, PayPal, Bank Transfer and even credit card.

All payments are accountable, I therefore can’t offer discounts if you want to pay by cash, or on the promise that you will generate more work for me if I do it cheaper!

All payments must have fully cleared before I can release any goods/artwork and a deposit must be paid before I start any concept artwork or book your job in.

Can you do a sketch or mock up of my work?

I provide digital mock ups and conceptual artwork for nearly all projects. I usually charge a non-refundable £50 deposit or will agree a one off fee payment which will allow me to allocate time to produce concept artwork for your project. If you commit to paintwork, the deposit is put towards your final invoice. One off fee payments for concept work will provide you with all artwork/designs and the rights to them to use how you feel fit.

Unfortunately I can’t provide free artwork!

Where are you based?

I am based in Hull, East Yorkshire, UK.

I don’t advertise the shop address for a number of reasons. Please contact me if you wish to meet in person or send anything to me.

Can I ship my item to you to paint?

You can send pretty much anything to me to be painted (within reason). I take on commissions of all shapes and sizes from all corners of the world and can source next day shipping for you.

Do you teach or can I work for you?

Unfortunately I don’t have the capacity to employ, train or offer work experience at the moment.

If you’re serious about learning to airbrush I can point you in the right direction and offer some friendly advice.

Hows my paintjob doing? can I see it? can you send me a picture?

Im in a fortunate position to have a steady stream of work, however in order for me to keep this running the way it should I prefer not to have to stop and send pictures all the time or wait around for visitors during business hours etc as it just delays work.

Do you repair carbon frames?

In short, no.
I can do some cosmetic frame repairs before paintwork but if the structure of the carbon is compromised I would always recommend taking it to a specialist. I can put you in touch with some of the best carbon repair technicians in the country.

How long is your waiting list?

I operate on a first come first serve booking system, booking jobs in well in advance with a depsoit securing an estimated time slot. I am generally booked up solid 2-3 months in advance, but you can book in for a time slot further away – for example booking a frame in for paintwork once your racing season is complete.

The best way to get an immediate answer is to just get in touch.
