Here's the problem.
I have this paint which works exceedingly well. If I sell you the paint, it will have to be sprayed to work at anywhere near it's true potential.
HOW GOOD ARE YOU AT SPRAYING?
I am looking at selling the product direct to the public.
I am also looking at selling the product to dealers, so they can spray their own screens for resale and installs.
I found some decent vynil as well.
If you spray the paint badly, and have poor results, am I to blame?
The answer is no. I am not to blame. But some may not see it that way.
(there are some absloutely stunning puns floating about here)
I can either issue FINISHED SCREENS ONLY, or sell the paint to dealers only, or all three.
I am inclined to do all three.
I sell screens at a 'preset' sort of value, so as to not undercut my dealers, which I am supporting. This would be a screen for those who do not wish to attempt their own, and don't or can't deal with the whole thing. Or do not want the attempt at disaster. There will be a preset price for dealers to buy finished screens, if they do not wish to deal with the spraying aspect. Final pricing structure is still in the air. I want it to be fair, and will go far to achieve this. It is a bit complex to deal with being fair to all, but no one said I would get off easy here.
I would sell the paint outright, to the man on the street, with reccomendations for handling and useage. Caveat emptor. (buyer beware) You have been told and warned. Don't come cryin' to me. Hint: buy some and take it to your local car painting shop. Plenty of spraying experts around. These guys spray metallic paints on curved surfaces. A harder task than that is difficult to come by.
Coverage must be PERFECT!!! After all, you are looking at the surface each day, on the most minute level. Surface defects WILL BE NOTICED.
So, you can forgo the risk ot of it, and buy a finished screen....at a substantially higher price, as someone has used skills, and taken the risk, and completed the work.
Or you can take your chances.
I will try all three at first. If the results are that people can't handle the paint, then it will be removed from public sale. It will remain with competent installers and dealers. If that proves to be too difficult a situation, then It will be pulled from that forum as well. I seriously doubt that it will prove to be a problem, though.
The first attempts will be with a few private quiet little sales, and with a few select dealers. Ones with painting backgrounds. Then, the public sale.
