Secure Order Site - Custom Matching

PaintScratch provides custom paint matching for nearly any color on any surface. We can match powder coats, fluorescent colors,  aircraft, appliances, furniture, special panels, etc. In order to match colors successfully, we will need a painted part at least 2" square. Not all colors will need custom matching. If we find an existing paint that we feel is an excellent match, you will not be charged a color matching charge at all. We will notify you upon receipt of your part.
Please note: Custom matching is only available in the United States.

Where to send your part:

When is my Credit Card Charged?

Your credit card is not charged by submitting this form. Your card will be charged when we receive the part you send in for custom matching.

Costs and Color Matching

You have two choices for paint matching.  

Hand matching is an exact match of the paint sample you have sent us. Our paint technicians carefully match the sample you have sent. It is a time consuming process and the cost for this is $39.95. If you require a paint formula for a hand matched paint, there is a one time charge of $150.00. This will only be necessary if you need to have this paint made in the future. If you do choose this option, you will only need to reference your invoice number for us to find the custom formulation we have on file for you.

Computer Scanning

Computer scanning is a blendable scan. We scan the color and it produces a paint formula that is somewhat close to the color, but not exact. There is no charge for computer scanning.


Tricoat paint matching costs an additional $30.00 and we will let you know if your color is a tricoat. Tricoats are composed of three paint layers, basecoat, midcoat and clearcoat.

Hand match versus Computer Matching for Metallic Finishes

For metallic automotive finishes, we recommend the hand match as the computer matching is usually not satisfactory. For solid colors, computer matching may be sufficient to produce a close match. Again, if you are painting an expensive vehicle, spend the money for the hand match.


PaintScratch will match your color under natural light or simulated sunshine. Your color may look different under other lighting conditions.

Quantity Discounts and Minimum Order

There are no minimums for orders. There are discounts for quantity purchases of paint. Please contact us with your requirements.
