Where would be a good place to get the sample boards?

You could try a craft store, SW has them, I can't remember the price, but it was pretty cheap.

Way to much work for me. However I will do that for a customer who is spending some serious money on painting their home.Like what has already been said,chances are they would want the one I don't have.The samples are going to get a little dirty quickly(around us)
I have worked with many designers and they all have promised us tons of work.The next job they call us on they are still having 3 or 4 guys come out.
I treat them nicely(not special) but they are just another awesome customer to me.

Aaron, it's gotta be a regional thing. Designers around here are awfully loyal once the find a good fit. That's why I am targeting the young new ones

Indeed Bill, I think it is more of a regional thing, I have met a lot of designers in my town and they are all set with being loyal to their painting company, that's why you kinda have to get in with the new designer in town, of course if you are good they will keep you for as long as they are in business.

I am quite lucky I met this young woman recently graduated from university and at the time I met her, she was still working for a designer firm gaining field experience, she went on her own now and that's when she called me, we talked about helping each other out and every time we have some colour consultation she comes in, and every time she has some painting to be done we help her as well.

I think that's the best way to find a designer, specially when they are young, eager and wanting to be successful. But like I said, it can be just regional.
