What is on offer


ColorWare offers an extremely large variety of both vibrant and bold colors; from Carbon Black to Envy Green, to Candy Apple Red, the colors available will satisfy anyone's desires. All of their paints include a metallic-flake finish, topped with a high gloss coat. While pictures on their website often poorly represent the feel and true look of the color selection offered, you cannot go wrong with any color chosen.


Upon return, we expected the labs' belongings to be painted and coated with a type of clear-coat flashy enamel; boy were we wrong. The layers applied to the products were thin and delicate, and hardly added a thickness to the encasings. The gloss finishing was much more elegant than expected, leaving an extremely smooth finish while remaining conservatively reflective and shiny.


We had chosen unique colors (Envy Green and Midnight Blue) and therefore were slightly worried about the final look. We were, once again, pleasantly surprised by two vivacious and adaptive colors. Due to the metallic-flake applied, the colors appear to shine and flutter in a variety of ways under different lighting conditions; both indoors and outdoors.


All products were received in an extremely well-packed manner. For the price one pays for these unique services, we expected no less than what we had been met with. All items were individually wrapped, down to the very last wire, in layers of bubble-wrap and protective cushioning. Everything not only arrived in perfect condition, but all previous scratches and knicks appeared to have disappeared, overlapped by the beautiful newly-applied colors.




After a close examination of each one of the products serviced, we were indeed met with a couple of tiny bumps and painting imperfections. However, for the extremely few spotted, one could only be amazed by the smoothness and equality of layers applied throughout these products.
