Powder Coating???

post #1 of 101
Thread Starter 



Do u guys think there is a market for people who would want their cases powder coated??

reason im asking is because frozen cpu is asking about 300$ on avarage per computer case to powder coat them,

my brother OWNs a powder coating shop and hes currantly powder coating my case, the colors that he has are insane you can pretty much choose any color u want from plain to candy, he told me that he could do each case for about 120$ a pop, do u guys its a good deal and people would actually get sometihg like this done??


for example people could either ship me their cases or i would buy a brand new case and powder coat it and then they would just pay me retail + plaint cost?????

would any of you be interested in something like that???

Please let me know what you guys think, the beauty of having a case powdercoated instead of painted is that its pretty much scratch resistent due to the way the paint is layed on the metal

so for all you who do paint their cases this might be a perfect solution


theese are just some of the colors that we have available

Would the $100 bucks include everything? Shipping, supplies and labor?

100$ would include supplies and labor, the shipping you would have to cover, i just shipped a motorcycle fram that was powdercoated, which is a bit larger then the computer case box, and it cost me 24$, insured.

so on average 125$ for absolutly everything.

also if you want just a single color, meaning if you just want red, and dont want candy or other additives that makes the paint pop, i would lower the price from 100$ to 85$

Shipping is the biggest issue. If you're brother is charging $100 for the service for anyone, and not just you since you're family, that's about par with Frozen's pricing. Tack on $30 for shipping each way and you're up to $160, and I think 25% to 30% leeway for them being a [somewhat] larger company trying to make a buck is reasonable.

Of course that said, I'm of the opinion that I would much prefer to help out an individual with my business rather than a company.

How fancy is the paint job? Plain or can we have patterns done? These are things that would definitely be determining factors in my decision to use your services in March when I purchase my SB rig.

I probably would, if I had a case I wanted painted. Post some pictures when hes done with your case, and then ask every one. There is a big difference between a good job, and a okay job. A picture speaks a thousand words.

if you look at this link here, you have a CM 932 thats usually usually only 150$ right now on new egg, and in this link frozen CPU is asking 459$ for a powdercoated version, thats actaully $310 service, which is rediculous if u ask me.

and im only asking 100$ plus shipping which is what u said is around 60$ both ways, and thats only if u want your case powdercoated, if u were to buy a new case i would not charge for shipping to my house fomr the store, which is usually dirt cheap you know

so worst case scenario is 160$ still only half of what FrozenCPU is charging

here is the link:

thats a good price for FULL cases if that is what you are doing

some people that have their cases already would probably just ship it and some without cases and planning a new one could have you buy it

im getting something done similar by cyberdruid
