A Magazine Just for Paint Contractors!

It’s been 7 years since we started The Paint Contractor (TPC) magazine, and we
could not be prouder of how far we have come! When we started TPC, we just felt there
wasn’t a magazine dedicated specifically to the professional painting contractor in the
way that our sister publication, The Paint Dealer, has been dedicated to independent
paint & sundries dealers for the last 22 years. We wanted to solve that issue… and we
There were publications filled with technical jargon, association business, manufacturers’
press releases and even stuff that has nothing to do with contractors or their businesses.
But there was no magazine that seemed like the type of thing a contractor would sip some
coffee or eat a doughnut while eating his lunch in the cab of his truck
or on the job site.
The Paint Contractor carries the 22-year tradition of its sister publication to the
professional painting contractor, whether they are commercial, residential or industrial
painters. Our belief is that contractors work too hard not to have a monthly magazine
that’s both informative and fun to read.
There are still magazines out there that talk down to their contractor readers and are
not helpful in teaching the painting pro how to be the best at their craft. TPC is different.
You’ll find that TPC, which became a monthly publication in 2009, is written in a light,
one-on-one, conversational tone that contractors have already shown they prefer.
