CUSTOM PAINTING 

Paint color customization is the easiest way to set yourself apart while keeping your favorite products in stock. We all want to carry the most popular brands, but we don’t want to end up looking like every everyone else! While we can’t promise custom color exclusivity, we can ensure that your colors reflect the shop you've worked hard to curate. 

Son of a Sailor extends color customization with any of our custom paint colors for no fee. If you are looking for a specific color, color matching is available but may incur an additional fee.

DIGITAL SWATCH BOOKS

For easy ordering and accessibility, we have assembled digital swatch books to show our custom colors. The swatch books, which are located on the next few pages, are split into “Leather” and “Wood & Metal.” Due to the making process, please keep in mind product material when ordering, as a wooden or metal product cannot be painted with leather paint and vice versa.

LEATHER AND WOOD CUSTOMIZATION 




BRANDING  
This technique can be applied to both leather and wood items. Branding burns a custom logo onto the piece resulting in an organic, raw dark brown coloring. This technique is created using a hot metal tool by hand, the brand produces slight inconsistencies and has potential for over burn. Depending on the size of the logo, a one time tooling fee begins at $150 and goes up. The brand may be used on all goods now and in the future, ensuring that product can accommodate the size of the brand. There is a $1 per unit customization fee for branding. Because each brand is made custom, we are subject to the turn around time of the tooling company as well as our own and lead times are often extended. 

This technique can be seen on our leather mug sleeve and flight board.

Laser Engraving
Laser engraving creates a precise and consistent logo every time. This process burns a custom logo onto the piece and results in dark brown coloring. This technique can be applied to both leather and wood items. Price is per unit with no setup fee and depends on the size and intricacy of a design. Lead time of embossed items may increase slightly. A typical per unit fee ranges from $2 - $5. 


This technique can be seen on our shot board.

Embossing
Embossing uses a stamp to mark the leather, resulting in a relief only with no additional coloring. This technique can be applied to leather items only. Depending on the size of the logo, prices often range from $100 - $150. The stamp may be used on all goods now and in the future, ensuring that product can accommodate the size of the stamp. There is a $1 per unit customization fee for embossing. Lead time of embossed items may increase slightly

Co-Branding
Son of a Sailor is also pleased to offer co-branding options for our customers. Many of our leather and wood items are ripe for customization via branding, laser engraving, or embossing. Exact pricing depends on the design, but typically incurs a tooling fee of $100-200 and a custom item fee of $1-10 per item.

If you have a customer who is interested in co-branding or custom products, please reach out to a Son of a Sailor representative and we’ll be happy to give more information!
