Testimonials

"I would like to thank Great Lakes Custom Colour for their great service. I sent a question by email after hours and still received a reply within 3 hours...totally unexpected. With my answer I made my order and it arrived 2 days later. If the product is half as good as the service I'll be happy."

Frequently Asked Questions

How much product is in an aerosol can?

In any 12oz aerosol can there is not 12oz of product. The 12oz is a make up of usually 3 different things. Compressed air or gas, a solvent, and product. Most aerosol cans can only hold up to 4oz of product. Typically more in the range of 2.5-3.5 ounces.

Can I get customized colours?

Yes, because we are a custom shop that offers different services we mix and fill our colours in house. Looking for a custom shop super faded shell pink, sonic blue or seafoam green? We can do that. We are constantly developing new colours. If we have it in stock we can customize it for you. Send us an email to get started on your custom colour.

Shipping

In Canada any business must follow the rules and regulations of the MTO/TDG. Businesses using any shipper (Fedex, UPS, Purolator) etc must have packages shipped properly under these regulations. Anyone who is caught not doing so is subject to large fines that can cripple a business. Dangerous goods are no different. Lacquer itself falls under UN 1263. Nitrocellulose falls under UN 2059 and Aerosols are UN 1950. They must be shipped in consumer quantities or (Limited Quantities) and labeled as such. Our shipping rate follows these rules and regulations. If you notice your shipping increases it is due to these rules. We take great pride and speed in our shipping. Typically 1-3 business days in central Canada. We use only recyclable material in all of our packing other than our bubble wrapped guitar bodies. No peanuts no styrofoam. We know everyone hates it anyways.
