We can also powder coat your Spring Buckles for a small additional charge. You can choose from 24 stock colors. There is no minimum on stock colors. You can also order from over 100 available colors. On custom colors there is a minimum of 150 pieces (you can combine different types of metal hardware to meet this requirement). Please keep in mind that powder coating can delay shipping your order, and that powder coating is only available with metal hardware. Also note, powder coating is not permanent. It will chip and deteriorate over time, especially in any "hard" use. We recommend you check out our anodized hardware selection for a more durable solution (in black).
For more information on powder coating and your spring buckle straps see the metal hardware colors page. When viewing the metal hardware colors page, scroll down to the bottom of the page to read important information on powder coating.
