Using finishing techniques honed over years of exhibit fabrication, Upland empowers your organization to tell a story in a voice all its own. Choose one of Upland’s signature stains and paint washes, or select a standard Sherwin Williams® paint or Old Masters® wiping stain to match existing finishes.
We use Old Masters® wiping stains to create beautiful hand-rubbed stain finishes, and Sherwin Williams® paint washes that allow the natural textures of the wood grain to show through. All painted or stained surfaces are finished with multiple coats of a protective satin Polycrylic® to ensure your exhibit holds up to years of use.
If you'd like your Upland products to be finished with a different brand of paint to match existing colors, just let us know. If we can get the color locally we will happily use the specified color without an additional fee.
Simply tell us where you got the paint and snap a quick photo of the can / color formula. Paint or stains from national brands carried at Ace Hardware, Home Depot, Lowe's, Benjamin-Moore, Wal-Mart, etc. are generally easy for us to get our hands on.
If you'd like a color sample for approval, Upland will send you a 8”x10” Baltic birch board to confirm the color and finish. Each color sample is $10. Once the finish is approved, we will proceed applying finish to your products.
If your product is made out of maple, birch, cherry, or walnut hardwood, we recommend using a clear tung oil finish to allow the natural beauty of the wood to show through. Please inquire about availability of hardwood samples.
