gold plating hard to do?
our equipment is designed to be very easy to use. The color
coded application wands are pre-set with the proper current, voltage
and polarity. Our systems are complete with a comprehensive training
manual, marketing manual and training video.
are the customers?
There are literally hundreds of applications and markets to choose
from; automotive, jewelry, plumbing fixtures, motorcycles, guns, coins,
medical equipment, etc. We have developed equipment designed for
virtually any application. It's up to you to decide on a marketing
plan and sales program that fits your personality.
Much Can you make?
you can earn can vary greatly depending on the type of plating
business you choose to build. For example in the automotive
emblem plating business, a single person with one machine can
easily plate a 4 or 5 emblem car in less than 1 hour. So your
earning potential comes down to your marketing and sales program and
how you service your clientele.
We have an associate in the Northwest that has expanded their business
to 3 technicians and 3 portable gold plating machines. The
technicians work on a guaranteed commission basis and make an
excellent income. One of the more successful people we know is a
customer of ours in northern Utah. This is a
link to an article in one of our newsletters that highlights his
We've seen the chart that someone
has put on the net that is a spin off of the old vending machine
rip-off lines. It shows that if you have one machine you will
make $70,000 per year, two machines will product $140,000 per
year etc. The reality is that based on the piece of equipment
they are selling, there probably isn't anyone making any
real money using their system. While it is possible to make an
excellent income in the portable gold plating business, the business
owner needs every advantage possible. Starting out by buying a
cheap system from a company that doesn't understand the plating
business can be a fatal mistake for your business.
Does an automobile emblem have to be removed before it can be gold
Not usually our unique process has been developed to allow the
technician to leave the emblem on the car in almost every case. The
plating solutions will not affect most new car finishes. Our training
will teach you how you can tell if there could be a risk of having a
problem with leaving an emblem on the vehicle. Being able to leave the
emblems on the vehicle provides a great advantage for the on-site
plater. Imagine the cost savings of not having to remove the emblems,
sending them to a plating company and then having to re-installed.
How long will the gold last ?
24 Karat gold will never corrode. The plating that is applied
with our system is the same as any other 24 karat gold electroplate.
While 24 Karat gold will never corrode and if applied correctly should
never peel, flake or fade it is very soft and needs to have proper
care to insure maximum life.
What company should I buy my equipment and supplies from?
We recommend three things to consider.
The reputation of the company.
If you have concerns about
the integrity of a company, we suggest that you check their record
with the Better Business Bureau. There are so many slick "virtual
businesses" on the Internet, you need a constant standard which
you can use to judge if a company is honest or not. There are other
clues you can look for. Does the website advertise the toll
free numbers or address of the business? We've seen several
plating supplier websites that don't have addresses, toll free
numbers or any other method of contact other than via
Do they know what they are doing? Many of the
suppliers on the internet are only resellers and don't even have a
plating business. We produce a substantial portion of our
revenue by gold plating. We know what will and what won't make
money in the plating business, and we share that information with
our customers. One of the best reasons for doing business with
Gold Plating Services is to take advantage of our technical know-how
and experience in the plating business.
Will they be in business in the future?
We will be here in
the future. Many of our customers are former customers of
suppliers that have gone out of business. The fact that we are
in the plating business as well as the equipment and chemical supply
business helps us to remain competitive.
takes serious equipment to actually make money with a portable plating
business. We've seen ads that read "Complete
Professional Plating Systems - Just $199". Such an
ad should insult the intelligence of a serious mobile gold plating
equipment shopper. Our Gold Star
plating system can include $350 in gold solution
alone. We have more than 2 decades of experience in the plating
business. During this time, we have not only operated our own
extensive plating business, we have also provided the equipment and
supplies for many people operating independent successful plating enterprises. From our experience, we can testify that you almost
certainly will not be successful trying to use a cheap toy that
professes to be a plating system.
Many of the
Internet resellers and vendors of plating equipment and supplies have
never been in the plating business, they don't have a clue as to
what is important when it comes to the features of a portable plating
system. Others take advantage of fact that most of the potential
buyers don't know what features actually provide value. They
punch out impressive sounding features that provide absolutely no
value to the person trying to make money with a mobile gold plating
information on what the real difference is between someone operating a
successful mobile plating business and someone who wastes their money,
energy and dreams on broken promises, give our sales staff a
call. We will tell you actual happy accounts of those who made
it work without delay and those who were sorry they made the wrong
choices in the very beginning. Buying a cheap gold plating
system could be the most expensive mistake you can make in setting up a gold plating business.
