FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS //
How much will it cost to paint my helmet?
Pricing is completely dependent on the complexity of your unique design and the paint, effects, and finish you choose to go with. If you have a design in mind or wish to work together to create an original one just for you, contact us directly and we’ll provide you with an official quote for your unique design requests. You may also review the Price Guide for more information.
Do you offer any sponsorships?
No. While we love dedicating countless hours of hard work for all of our valuable clients, we unfortunately do not offer any sponsorships or paint jobs as compensation.
Do I get a discount for multiple helmets or referrals?
No. While we appreciate your support and value all current and future clients, the amount of hours involved in custom helmet painting is substantial. Often times we already work late into the evenings, weekends, and almost every holiday in order to finish your helmets as soon as possible and meet deadlines – all while maintaining the highest standards in quality.
How long does it take to paint my helmet?
There are periods of time throughout the season where wait times are longer. This is typically during the beginning of the year just prior to the racing season, and around the holidays. Wait times tend to be shorter during the tail end of summer/ fall. Depending on the design and time of year, your wait time can be anywhere between 2 weeks & 3 months. We operate on a first come – first serve basis, so please plan accordingly. Your estimated turnaround time will be provided to you at the time of your quote/deposit. Expedited service is available for an additional fee pending availability.
Can you paint a used helmet?
Absolutely. While we encourage new glossy helmets for the best results, we are able to paint used helmets with minor rock chips. However, we DO NOT repaint helmets with graphics, or helmets that come with the “soft-touch” rubbery-matte finished surface.
Do you Chrome helmets?
Of course. The chroming effect is the premier choice in today’s racing helmet designs. If you are wishing to add chrome effect to your paint design, a NEW-IN-BOX helmet must be used due to the chroming process. No exceptions. This is because any flaw in your paint will be 100x worse when it’s chromed, no matter how well the flaw is fixed. Remember – the helmet’s shell must never be compromised so there are strict limitations on how far/deep we are able to sand out and fix scratches. The “blending” area of sanding out a single rock chip will reflect differently in the chrome vs standard paint when viewed with the naked eye.
Do you paint replicas?
No, we do not paint replicas of any kind. We specialize in original designs only.
Can you paint my helmet exactly like the one I see in your gallery but change the color and put my name on it?
No. While we appreciate you admiring another racers helmet, we will not be able to duplicate their design onto your helmet. Racers get their helmet custom painted for a reason. We doubt very much you would be happy spending your valuable time and money on a custom painted helmet only to have someone steal it from you. We will however be more than happy to create a unique design that is similar in style, but bespoke and custom just for you.
Do you paint motorcycle helmets?
No, unfortunately we no longer paint motorcycle or any DOT helmets. As of January 1, 2021, Veneratio Designs, LLC has primarily specialized only in FIA/SNELL Auto Racing and Karting helmets, & CMR Certified Youth karting helmets.
Can I change my design or add something after painting has begun?
Of course. Veneratio Designs strives for you to be happy with your new helmet! However, additional fees may be applied for adding/changing a design mid-process due to many variables including design re-scheduling, design time, materials, and paint. It is strongly advised you tell us exactly what you want at the beginning of the process to save you time and money.
Do you ship internationally?
Of course. We currently have clients all over the world and will be more than happy to get you a international return shipping quote via FEDEX or DHL.
*** Please refer to your country’s COVID-19 regulations regarding customs & imports.***
How is the return Shipping Handled?
When your helmet nears completion, you will be contacted for final payment preparations and a return shipping quote via UPS which will be added towards your balance. Once your remaining balance clears our account, your new custom painted helmet will be boxed up and mailed to you with a tracking number.
