    Chizzling too muchhhh

    Paper towel wrapped hardcard and i really dont like using chizzlers for applying tint or fingers Fingers come from a bad squeege pattern or debris under the flim or a bad cut or too much solution with no were to go and or wet lower seal+and the wet seal binding the bottom edge of the film I squeege very hard with a hard card a good pattern and hardly ever need a heatgun for most doorglass and a tri-edge for deep sides and some corners

    So.....according to a recent caller, the cost of material for tinting an 8'x8' storefront window wouldn't be more than $5-10. Labor can't be more than a few dollars more than that since I'm just laying a piece of plastic on the glass. After all he will clean the window for me. Maybe that's why you sell T-Shirts for a living.....and they sit on the shelf long enough to fade.

    People really getting pissed about this little joke? Yes the service is called ground, but realty it is a ground/air combo to get the package there. Hence the joke about it being shipped "ground" when it will require sea or air to actually get to the island. If you can't take jokes than probably need to disconnect your internet.

Funny quotes " "I have no idea what im doing" "looks pretty sick right dur" "its says peel of the backing. . . i dont see no backing" "Wow this sucks!" "I didnt think it was this hard" "Man I wasted all the film and still didnt tint a window" [ i made that one up]. . . lol

    hilarious. I actually find that the DIYers who try to tint their own car first, are some of the best customers!

    don't be afraid to charge...

    if you know what you're doing. just a little story to show that you shouldn't be afraid to get what you're worth. been tinting for a long time and started training my son 5 years ago. after 3 years he wanted to make more money so i set him up with his own shop. less than 1 mile from him were 2 other shops charging about half of what i charge. my only rule for him was you have to charge what i charge if you go on your on. well he was nervous since these guys were older (he is only 23) and in biz longer. well almost 2 years later he never went down in price, actually raised for vehicles he didn't like, and he's kickin' ass because he learned the right way and takes his time and does it the right way(my way). so get what you're worth and never be afraid to charge. just wanted to share a bit

    The trainee gets to sit on a milk crate in the back of the old van.... you can't go and spoil them early on by giving them a seat with a seatbelt and backrest. .. you have to let them get tossed around in the rear of a rattly van for a while to break them in the right way. ..#oldschool

    Went down to Ocean City NJ tonight... incredible weather. It was really nice. Got some pizza and then walked the boards for a bit. Grabbed some salt water taffy before heading home. This was a cool shot. Looked better in person. Next time I go I'm going to try and remember to take my DSLR

    Tinted my own car

    You are asking guys who tint windows for a living if we have seen a rear window....on ANY car?? All we do is look at windows! Even if it's a car we've never tinted....in anticipation!

    Here's my advice. The front windows shift. So before doing anything, mark the edges from the outside with something like a dry erase marker and roll the windows down a couple times so you can see how it shifts. That way you can cut your pattern accordingly. I got burned on my first Tundra because I didn't know the front windows shifted out of the front seal (mirror side).

    don't be afraid to charge...

    You guys are absolutely right! I used to tint on the side and always charged less than i should have for the quality of work i was doing. This did 2 things, made customers expect more for less and kept me so busy tinting turds that i started to hate tinting, which i actually love to do. When i decided to quit my job and go full time. I wanted pricing that would still draw in customers, weed out the bottom feeders and allow me to make a fair living, doing what i love. Now i charge $80 to $100 more on average for standard grade color stable film and get it all day with happy customers. Tint less, make more! However, every once in a while, if i slow down or have a cancellation, i tend to go against my own policy and discount to get the job in the bay, and almost every time i do this, i regret it! I always end up with a junk car or a pain in the ass customer!

    don't be afraid to charge...

    Same here, we started with Suntek then Flexfilm. First level was $129 for a non-color stable film and $179 for a color stable. Of coarse most of the customers were cheaper with older vehicles. When we wanted to leave Flexfilm due to failures, we decided to go Huper Optik. We were scared to drop the $129 line, so hung onto it for maybe 2 months. We quickly learned that we did not need the $129 line so dropped it. Fast forward to now, we average $300 per vehicle even though we start at $179.

    ok...so here she is set up with the fire going... got up to temp and held really well... and it didn't take much of a fire to get it there and hold... my pizza before going in...pizza sauce, spicy sausage, red onion and fresh mozzarella... after finished.... my wife's pizza.... gotta say, it was one of the best pizza's I have had...nice hint of smoke and crispy crust. The only thing I regret is letting the fire die down too much before putting the pizzas in. Once I opened the door and put the pizza in, the temp dropped to 350 and stayed there. Chalk that one up to experience tho. Next time it will be holding at 500

    I'm tired of hiring tinters Working towards opening a new shop this summer with just me! Old shop the tinters are still working on paying me on a buy out. Even if all works out on the sale I'm downsizing to just me. Less stressful, in control, charge more than anyone in town!!!! In for the win
