I work at a C2 retailer in Fargo, ND...
(a LOOONG way from most of you I'd guess!)
Yeah, it's a completely independant company, formed by exec's, etc. from other paint companies who wanted to "make their own top-notch brand, & keep it out of the "big-boxes"!
The C2 group decides who can carry C2...they "don't let everybody in" so to speak! Pretty hefty up-front fee too, but each retailer IS then an owner in the company.
Most of the stores are out East; a half-dozen in the Midwest; and a few on West-Coast; and some in Canada. Waaaay up here in Fargo, we've got quite a moat around us...closest retailers to US are Green-Bay & Chicago. To our "west", Denver is closest.
It IS a beautiful paint to apply! ZERO spatter. Primers are awesome. The C2-One primer was built to be better than Zin123. I don't like the 123 smell...the C2-One hardly smells at all! The C2000 WBP (WallBoard Primer) is another very good Interior primer for general use, and bare drywall. These 2 primers look as good as finish coats of a top-notch Flat.
Chrisn & Co.,
I wish there was some free stuff! They do have 1-pint "samplers" of Interior Eggshell for $8.99. Some stores may have them for $7.99; otherwise, Qts. are ~$14.99. Gallons avg. $40-$46, depending on sheen & tint-base.
They took dead-aim at BM & SW's best stuff with C2.
Another cool C2 thing...the paint-chips (even the little ones) are actual paint in the Eggshell sheen! The BIG sample sheets avg. ~ $5.99.
You're out East...Most of the C2 retailers are out there! Do a dealer-search at www.c2color.com.
A nice lady was in today (in her 60's I'd say...) with rolled-up plans for either a re-model or a new home. One of our Decorators was helping her get some initial plans/colors decided.
I kinda recognized her from a month earlier. She had started some painting then...and I made some C2 for her.
It was so funny/cute! She was just (pleasantly!) raving about how nice this paint was to use...She "Just loved it...It doesn't spatter at all...!", etc. She's gonna be buying a bunch more C2! In the spring, they're gonna be getting some C2 Exterior too !
Sounds like the kinda gal you'd love painting for!
