Upgrade to a Custom Color to achieve a better match for your leather or vinyl. This matching service costs $60 (or the difference of $40 if you previously paid for analysis) and is separate from the cost of the color itself.
Your color is formulated within 1-2 business days after receipt of funds.

We mix a small amount of color 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 on a textured surface 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 stain a piece of 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.
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 (wrap carefully to protect from a box cutter)
- 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.
Please fill out this short form if you haven’t already. If you mail 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!
