Talking Hello from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

My name is Karla. I've been a professional painter for 5 years and I love my job! Recently I've grown tired of working for an employer because I keep getting put on crews comprised of 16-20 year olds with little to no experience, and expected to produce the same results as a crew with experienced painters. So recently I have decided on a sole proprietorship. I opened the doors of First Class Interior Painting early last week. I have experience in both residential and commercial work, but I prefer interior residential so that is what I am aiming for. I know that I have alot to learn so I am glad I came across Paint Talk. I am so glad to live in the information age, and to have the support of my peers. Cheers everyone!

Welcome Karla!

I like the the classic look of your Logo. It's a nice contrast to a lot of the trendy designs found on the internet.

It appears you know what you want to do, and have the experience to back it up, so good luck to you!

Thanks! I really wanted the logo to be simple, and to let my photos and referrals speak for themselves. Now I just need to land my first contract and I will be on my way

Welcome to the forum Karla. Good luck with the business.
I started mine a little over 2 years ago. It can be rough at times. I just told myself I am not going to fail and I let my work speak for itself.

Welcome to PT! We only do interior work as well. It's mainly residential but we also do small to mid sized commercial work.
