Painting Company Name Guide

After working with over 4,500 painters in our community, we have seen every painting company name imaginable.

Business owners often name their painting company based on these themes:

  • Memorable/Unique Names
  • Emphasis on Quality Names
  • Owner-Named Companies
  • Locally-Generated Names
  • Powerful Names
  • Friendly Names
  • Funny Names
  • Money-Saving Names

(These are actual painting company names)

How to Name Your Painting Company – Best Practices

As Shakespeare said, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet”. Or in other words; what’s in a name?

You cannot fully represent your company with a name, but a good name can help. After working with 4,500 companies, we recommend combining these themes (in order of importance):
Local – Customers like working with someone local.
Quality – People hire painters who take pride in their work.
Friendly – People only work with people they trust.
Memorable – This will help you get more referrals.

Avoid These Name Types:
Funny – Ya they’re funny, but they sound unprofessional.
Affordable – You’ll have a tough time making a profit if you’re always the cheapest price.
