7.75% added to the price. But, surprisingly, no additional death labels. Must be safe for use in children and on strawberries.

No death label? Obviously your store got the shipment intended for Las Vegas...

This product is so great for so many things!
I'm thinking of the inside door panel inserts, is it okay to use on vinyl?

It does remain flexible but anything that gets rubbed against or fussed with is probably not a good surface to use it on.

Frosted Flakes are not good with plasti dip.

Thanks!  I thought it might be a good idea because if I didn't like how the new colour looked I could just peel it off.

Saw this last night and was duly impressed.  I thought it was paint at first, then I noticed the texture...

Online only for other colors.  Haven't seen any in person.  Might get some red and some glossaries and see how the misses likes red wheels.

I'm also going to get orange and sneak in to my brothers garage :)

Hello all.

i was wondering if someone can help me out with the following

i want to buy 8 cans of plasti dip matte black

http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-100131010/h_d2/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&keyword=plasti+dip&storeId=10051#specifications

of course i will pre pay the cost of the product + shipping cost by USPS standard + $10 for the gas (to and from home depot)

of course it would all depend on the shipping cost as well (if it is more than $40 to Greece, it 's not worth it).

the reason i am asking this, is because around here, each can costs 25 euros (around 33$)

USPS and UPS will not ship flammable items.

I don't know if PlastiDip would ship direct to you or not....they would have to proper packaging to ship aerso cans in though.

I got a number of cans from awarehousefull.com - very good prices.  I just checked their shipping pages, and it's possible you could get them to ship to you direct.  This is what it says:

George   you may have to order a Min.amount of Cans .If it is at the right price you could get others to help with the Order,or you buy so many and sell them for a little profit to cover the cost if need be.

If you have your own paint gun and compressor, get the plasti-dip in a non-aerosol can, so it's just a tin with the plasti-dip liquid in it, with a pull-tab lid, instead of pressurized with a nozzle.  It may be easier to ship it by air internationally since it is not pressurized.  It'll be cheaper all round, from the material itself to the shipping as you get more in the same size can.

Since it is flamable, even if it's not an aerosol, most shippers will classify it as a hazardous material and limit it to ground shipment only.  I don't know if UPS or Fed EX use boats to cross the ocean but that would be like shipping next year air in that you ain't getting it anytime soon.
