We strive for 3 business days turn around, or less, on custom color approval samples, but please keep in mind that:

• If multiple products are submitted more time may be required.
• Sample must be submitted by 3 PM for work on the following day.
• Turn around days begin on the business day following submittal of sample.
• Time frame does not include transit time for samples.
• In response to large demands we reserve the right to refuse additional samples for 3 day turn around.


While You Wait” Color Matches
We do offer will call matching service on solid color only (no stains). Please limit your order to 2 colors with a maximum of 10 gallons each. All additional colors please follow our regular terms and conditions.


How do you get started?


  • Stains - ½ pint liquid sample of your stain, a minimum 6” X 6” dry standard and a large amount of the actual sanded substrate you’re going to use with this stain. On the dry sample please circle the target area that you would like matched. If a liquid standard cannot be supplied, we may be able to provide a reasonable match on your supplied substrate.
  • Solid Colors, Glazes & Paint Pens – We have many of the popular paint store color decks on file. If we have the color on file we simply need the paint company name, color name and color code from the paint sample. Please contact us with this information and we can verify if we have the color match on file. If we don’t have the color sample on file a dry sample of the paint color (like a paint store chip, or color card) are needed. If you don’t have a dry sample we can match from a liquid sample, however we must create a draw down of the paint on card stock and allow it to completely dry ( 1+ hours) before scanning it into our color computer.
  • Wax Filling Sticks & Installer’s Putty - We need a minimum of a 6” X 6” dry standard with the target area circled.

How the process works!

3. After your approval and receipt of our Custom Product Approval form, place an order anytime by using the Custom Product code assigned your project.
4. Once a Custom Product is approved we keep the formulas on file for quick future reorders (and no additional lab fees!).
