Custom Helmet Information
Thank you for your interest in a custom helmet.
I work from my home spray booth on all artwork. You can expect a 2-4 week turn around on completion of job from design and layout to final clear coat/varnish depending on design and time of year. I gladly work with the customer on timing of the piece to ensure the least bit of interruption of their sport as possible.
Safety factors for helmets are priority. I will paint on a helmet gently used, but will not paint helmets that are unsafe. If the helmet is used there is a bit more work involved in stripping the helmet of the existing finish and sanding light blemishes, then priming and sealing for the new artwork. All decisions will be made on a case by case scenario.
Quality of the paint and work are also priority. We use the finest paints, products, and processes to create your piece. I will choose the appropriate paint system based upon customer needs/wants. The work is always protected with a tough clearcoat. Care must be taken with this investment you have made. Although functional art, it must be still treated like fine art when handling. Chips, and scratches can and will happen. I do not warranty against chips or scratches, but can offer repair if desired.
Pricing is subject to what is involved in the particular goalie mask but here are a few parameters in which I work to let you start thinking about what you want:
Extensive Concept/Layout/Decisions on what will be on piece $50-$100
Sticker removal: $100-$200 (please remove your own stickers if possible)
Prep (including sanding, blemish removal, priming, basecoat) $200
Custom Airbrush and Clearcoat $200-$1000
(dependent upon factors such as stylization, graphic effects, logos, details)
Custom Lumilor electroluminescent paint systems will add on more depending on what size areas we want to light up. Helmets could cost up to around $1500 for decked out artwork and illumination.
I will work with you on your budget, just let me know what you have to work with, we can make it happen. Typically a mid range would look like $500-$600 allowing for concept, prep, great artwork and finish.
We do accept all forms of credit cards as a convenience to our customers. A deposit of half the quoted cost will be required up front before any work begins on the helmet. Final payment is required before release of helmet.
Initial simple consultation is included in quoted price, but if several concept designs are required, the total cost will be adjusted accordingly.
Shipping charges are unpredictable and will be added to the final invoice depending upon location.
Custom airbrushed artwork can be an amazing journey for you! I love to create the custom look people are looking for. Please contact me with your ideas and we can get to work in making things happen.
Thanks again for your interest! Candie
