Autumn boost for painters and decorators

Tester Pots

A passion for colour has prompted a new scheme for Crown Decorating Centre customers this autumn.

Throughout September and October Crown Decorating Centres will be offering painters and decorators the chance to ‘try before you buy’ with up to three Crown Trade tester pots free of charge.

The initiative, which is available across the network of more than 130 Crown Decorating Centres, gives customers up to three free 250ml sample pots, giving greater flexibility when helping clients choose colour.

Paula Taylor, Marketing Manager at Crown Decorating Centres, said: “Our sample pots are a great way to ‘try before you buy’ and used in conjunction with the new Crown Paints’ MyRoomPainter app, we’re helping more and more people to get creative with colour.”

The free tester pots are available at Crown Decorating Centres until October 31, subject to availability and are limited to three per customer.

The Crown Paints MyRoomPainter app allows painters and decorators to offer instant colour schemes, using a smartphone or mobile tablet device to show how any palette will look in situ.

Available for free download from the App Store

or Google Play

The app includes a colour-matching function, a handy paint calculator and an inspirational library.
