 Match the leather color of your car, man cave or furniture!

 

 

Send us a sample of your leather color, and we will match it (excluding metallics or fluorescents)! Custom Colors cost a little more but save time and labor (unless you're color-changing a piece). Turn-around time is swift -- usually 24-48 hours after receipt of your sample.

THE PROCESS

We mix a small amount of dye and test it on your original sample, examining it under sunlight and indoors. We adjust the color accordingly and re-examine until we are content with the formula. This is a painstaking process done with a professional eye. No computer can read the color and write a formula as accurately and certainly not without human refinement (this is especially true with base-and-print or multi-toned samples). We then expand the formula to the desired volume. This final color is tested once more on the original sample and adjusted if necessary. We then use the Custom Color to dye a piece of scrap leather, half of which we send to you, and the other half we retain on file with the original sample in the event of a future re-order.

ABOUT SAMPLES

We ask that a sample be at least 3" x 1" in size, though we have worked with smaller.

A sample can be any of the following: 

  • Swatch of the original leather or vinyl (found underneath cushions, along inseams, or stapled to the frame)
  • Cushion case
  • Paint chip from a hardware store
  • Fuse panel cover or headrest from a vehicle
  • Piece of drapery or flatware  

Photographs of your pieces are helpful in determining quantity of dye needed, but we cannot mix a color to a photograph.

 

SEND A SAMPLE

 
Please include your telephone number, billing, shipping, and email addresses with your sample. If you are mailing a physical component such as a headrest, cushion case, etc. we recommend insuring the item with the freight carrier in the event it is lost or damaged!

MIXING FEES

 

$55 Custom Color formulation fee gets you:
  • Consultation and tailored solution for your project.
  • Formulation and mixing of your color that we keep on file.

 

The Custom Color fee is a service option and does not include the cost of an 8 or 16 oz. bottle of dye or count toward free shipping minimums. If you paid $15 for a color analysis, we will deduct it from the Custom Color service fee. 

 

The re-mix fee for any Custom Color formula on file is $30 and is also separate from the cost of an 8 or 16 oz. bottle of dye and does not count toward free shipping minimums.

 

DISCLAIMER

 
You are embarking on a DIY project. Half the magic is in the application process. Our dyes are easy to use and forgiving but require some creativity and experimentation on your part.
 
Most samples that we receive are base-and-print or multi-toned. We mix a single color that your eye reads as a match from a short distance. You can choose to work with a single color or two, but replicating the appearance of the original material is up to you.
 
Swatches often do not resemble their faded counterparts. Therefore a Custom Color also won’t match, and you may have to dye the entire piece. In this instance, you may prefer going with a less expensive stock option. 
 

RETURN POLICY

We do not accept returns or offer refunds for Custom Colors.
