As an authorized direct dealer for both ARAI and BELL MX, Street and Auto Racing helmets we can also supply you with the knowledge and correct fit off the shelf to compliment that Picasso helmet paintjob you have always desired. With SHOEI , TLD, HJC and many other top helmet brands available please feel free to inquire via email for current model and pricing quotes.

Wanting a stand out look? With the ease of sharing imagery and product ideas via email, we highly recommend starting a dialogue this way. It allows our designers to have a more cognitive idea of your desired design and project, thus we can better estimate the actual costs and options for you. Anything from F1-style airbrush renderings to carbon fiber composite accessories to color-matched billet bolt-ons. The goal ALWAYS is an unmistakable joint endeavor that'll generate and share the positive vibe created by our enthusiastic staff and clients.

All graphics are painted on. We have a full Vinyl-CAD as well as digital print system for creating templates and incorporating your specific logo or detailed fonts that you may request.  We use a combination of PPG brand primers, basecoats and high solid clears as well as House of Kolor brand candies and graphic colors. In other words, after countless years of mad scientist experimentation in the spray booth, we use a combination of automotive finishes to create what we feel is a superior finish. We do not use water based airbrush colors or non-catalyzed basecoats. If your paint project is going to see the kind of speeds and abuse that today’s sports require, then please do not allow inferior and weak finishes to be applied on it.

Blowsion President John Dady (the picky bastard that wont let anyone else in his paint booth) will put together an accurate cost estimate for the paint work/design after he receives email input from you on your desires and ideas. He will always want to personalize the design to your unique look, so it is our job to expose a few different ideas or "improvements" to make it YOUR new graphic design. At Blowsion we like to call it the new 2020 version of what maybe is your standard and expected “look". When emailing or calling feel free to ask for a "Blowsion Picky Paint Questionairre" to start off the idea sharing.

Spending a day in the surf testing, or in the spray booth creating and designing may be tough work, but we are willing to continue to make the sacrifice to ensure that we always offer the best options, service, designs, and performance for our customers. Check out our new products and gallery of modified and painted watercraft as well as some of the latest custom painted helmets and drop us an email with any questions.

Paint & Design Services Pricing Guidelines:

Helmets

With so many different sports helmets in use today the pricing category is a challenge to nail down until we see what model of helmet you have as well as your desired look and design. John can easily formulate a paint package that fits within your budget however keep in mind he is a "quality over quantity" based designer. Most of the Blowsion helmet design paint work ranges from $595.00-1500.00 US Dollars and up. We always recommend using a new, solid  color helmet for the best results. Used helmets with decals or OEM graphics may require an additional prep charge. Emailing a picture of your current helmet condition will allow a concise reply on proceeding. 

Please do not prep (sand or primer) or mask the helmet yourself, or remove the moldings.
