Since I started my trade thirty-two years ago, car pinstriping has been my main area of focus.  I do strictly hand-painted pinstriping using One Shot lettering enamels.  Yes, old school style pinstripers still exist, and you know their work when you see it.  A hand-painted pinstripe defines the body lines of a car, and with new model produced, pinstriping adds definition.

Harmony is key – when its comes to aesthetics, we’re looking for that fine balance between prominence and subtlety.

Old School Design

car pinstripingWhile I’m capable of duplicating any design that best fits your needs, I initially grew my business around the “old school” style of car pinstriping.  Old school pinstriping can best be described as a tight, intricate series of lines, often in symmetrical patterns, that complement the color and contour of the car.  This style of pinstriping is typically abstract, representing nothing but keen aesthetics.  The way I stripe, I honestly never get the same design twice – while I can make your stripe match the style I’ve used on thousands of other vehicles, your’s will be unique in its own right.

Attention to detail is crucial as we create a design for your vehicle – there is no one-size-fits all approach.


Color matching is something that I’ve gained a knack for over the years, as it is a crucial component in a good design.  Complimenting the exterior color as well as the interior color is the usual approach, but sometimes you might want to add “pop” with vivid colors.  Popular to conventional wisdom, painted pinstripes can be removed without damaging the clear coat on the vehicle, additionally, if desired, you can go over the existing pinstripe with a totally different color. There is much that can be expressed through color choice, so I will help you discover what it is you’re trying to communicate through your design – this way, your stripe truly represents you.

We will add expression to your stripe with careful color choice.
