I'm thinking of opening an Airbrush Business in the local shopping mall. I wanted to know if it's a good idea, and how much to charge? Colorware charges hundreds of dollars, but I'd be a fraction of what they charge ... same day service!!!

Everything in bold and italic? Come-on man don't try to be special just because you've got 25,6k karma.

O_o Nitrocrime, he is entitled to format it how he likes.

I like that format. (Before he edited it a minute ago.)

I also like the way it was formated before. He wants to format his differently than everyone else's. I can normally tell when it is r0bErTu's question without even looking for his name...there is nothing wrong with that.

I'd pay for it if I could give you a design... $50 would be reasonable.

Our Airbrush Artists do some work from photos, so that wouldn't be a problem. The $50 price range could work =0p...

I couldn't tell you what to charge but the images above are freakin awesome. I would find out what local competitors are charging and then lower you rate to something you're comfortable with and go from there.

Thanks for the answer. Not finding other custom paint services for your gadgets. Colorware, NW Falcon, Voodoo, and a few others are the closest to what I'm trying to do. SkinIt sells stickers, but not the same.

I rather have that awesome painting than stickers, the apple sticker just don't do in my HP tablet.

Looks awesome :P, Falcon Charges 300 just to put some flames in a laptop >.>, just don't charge a lot, depending how the business goes you can play w/ the prices. Make and estimate on how much the paint and stuff costs then sum it to how much do you think your work cost.

BTW post more pics I am drolling on their awesomeness! Taylor Swift looks cool!

If I were you, I'd charge about $50-150 for a job. Of course, it will depend customer to customer. There might be someone who just wants his 10.1" netbook sprayed green. That will barely take any time at all. Then, there might be one guy with a massive computer case who wants some really intricate work done on all of it, which will take a lot of time and cost a lot more. I'd charge up to $200 for work like that, depending, of course, on how intricate the work is.

One idea would be, since you work on apple devices, to offer spraying on cases, so the original device isn't altered, but the owner can still get something cool. :)
