Need Name, Slogan For A Painting Company
Posted by Anonymous on

Me and my friend have a combined experience of over 30 years and we want to offer top quality work. We wont be the most expensive, but certainly not the cheaper service. We will be concentrating on finding 80% work in repainting interiors and exteriors of houses. We need an original name and a catchy slogan. Anybody have an idea ?

"Look at that finish!"
I know, I know, it doesn't includes your names, or words suchs as "partners", "&s on"; it doesn't have a pun like "Top Strokes"; it doesn't refer to being quite expensive (most difficult position to defend with price-conscious customers) nor does it reference how long you've had brushes in your hands...
What it refers to is what customers who might like quite expensive are *actually* looking for ( I say this as both a recent customer and as a specifier of decorating services for clients) They know it can be done extremely well, for sure, but they don't see why they should pay over the odds for artists.
What it does is focus on the result you deliver for the customer (what), which is far better than talking about how you produce it and how much it costs

By the way, absolutely concur with rbauman's great advice on how to identify and focus on differentiators. Still essential for defining your brand (and working out who your real target market is)

Thanks for the help guys
My friend seems to be hung up on the name Coral Paint Works
Its pretty abstract, but perhaps it could work with the right slogan? Or throw the idea away ?

Some quick ideas….
Practical Painting - We paint so you don’t have to!
Fresh Coat Painting - Refresh your tired walls
Two Painters - To paint, or not to paint?
Perfect (or Prime) Painting – 30 years of practice
Is it Coral as in color, sea life, town…? If Coral has some meaning this may work, otherwise I might keep looking….
Coral Paint Works or Coral Painting?
We paint so you don’t have to!
Refresh your tired walls.

Are you on the coast? Is there some geographic reference for Coral. It could work, otherwise it seems rather abstract to me and some what tough to support. (of course it is nearly 2AM).
Having hired a painters for my home I can tell you some of my concerns were: are they reputable, reliable, use quality products, listen to my requests then give their professional opinion, identify any problem areas beforehand, finish the job in a reasonable amount of time and stand behind their work if there's a problem.
The best one didn't have a fancy name or tagline.....he had all the business he could handle by referral.
Obviously name and tagline have value, I'm just throwing out some things to think about based on my experience as a consumer.
A name that encompasses all that is something like TrueColors. (add Paint Works if you want) That has multiple meanings, and is nicely reinforced by stobi's tagline of "A Professional Painting Company."
So visually it would read....
A Professional Painting Company.
That (or something close to it), would make me want to call you.

Facelift painters - make your interiors look younger.
If you provide various shades you could go for something like:
16bit painters - only 65536 color choices.
or on similar lines:
n-bit colors - <2 to the nth power symbol> colors with an n-chanting finish.
