What is automotive window tinting?

Automotive window tinting is the application of plastic shaded material to the windows of a vehicle, and is one of the fastest growing segments of the automotive "aftermarket." The term "aftermarket" refers to any product or service that is performed on a vehicle after it is purchased by the owner, such as alarm/stereo installations, gold-plating, running-board/wing installations, and similar "add-on" services that are popular with many car owners. Window tinting's popularity lies in its broad appeal to virtually every consumer age/income bracket. Teens love the "mean" look window tinting creates, while baby-boomers recognize the value window tinting produces in its ability to block out harmful UV radiation and solar heat that slowly deteriorates and fades the interior of their vehicle.This all adds up to one powerful message for you - opportunity! Window tinting can be learned right where you are, at your own speed, and can be done part-time for extra money while you slowly develop your skills until you are ready to take the "plunge" and open your own shop. If you already own an aftermarket shop you are in a great position to capitalize on a service that will compliment your product mix and bring in added revenue, so what have you got to lose?

A word of caution - automotive window tinting is an art. It involves the learning of precise cutting and exact cleaning and preparation skills that cannot be learned overnight. It takes from three to six months of on-going tinting (tinting everyday or at least every-other day) to master the techniques necessary to tint professionally. This is why there are so few really competent automotive window tinters around, and why opportunities abound for those who master automotive window tinting. Our videos, manuals, and software will not make you a professional window tinter. They will expose you to everything you will need to know about window tinting, which will make your learning curve much faster and a whole lot easier. Take a look at our window tinting training products and see which are right for you!
