It doesn’t take very long to discover that no matter how many different colors you might have stocked, when it comes to paint, it never seems like you have exactly the right shade that the customer is looking for. This is aggravating for both you and the customer who can’t find what they want.
Paint dispensers can make things a great deal easier.
Even though the customer might not be able to find exactly what they happen to be looking for, they can usually find something that’s pretty close. Once they’ve found something that is almost, but not quite, the color they’re looking for, they need to decide exactly what color they can mix in, which will create the perfect shade. This seems simple enough until you find yourself mixing and matching paints for nine to ten customers a day, at which point you’re basically paying an employee to do nothing more than play in the paint. The really hard part is trying to make sure that every single can that gets mixed is the exact same shade.
Paint dispensers and shakers help. Technology has improved these tools to the point where they can basically create the any color under the sun. Not only will the dispenser keep track of the exact amount of which color is mixed with the other to create the customer’s desired shade, but they will also make sure that the paints have been properly mixed so they will go on the walls properly.
As a business owner, you need to be prepared to put some thought and effort into finding the paint which will be the best possible match for you. They aren’t all the exact same thing. You want to make sure that you choose the model that will be the best match for your company.
One of the first things you will have to consider when shopping for a paint dispenser will be whether or not you want one that automatically dispenses the paint, or one that has to be used manually. The advantage of the automatic model will be that your employee can walk away from the machine while it’s working to help another customer. The advantage to the manual dispenser is that there’s fewer chances of things going wrong, which can result in the wasting of paint.
The other thing you will need to take into account will be the amount of paint you need mixed up at the same time. Unless you usually have a long line of customers waiting to get their paint mixed up, you probably don’t need a paint dispenser that can mix large quantities of paint at the same time, and will be just as happy with a smaller, less expensive model.
