About Us

We thank you for visiting hydrodipper.com and would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about our company and how it got started.

In Business for Over 80 Years

We have been in the automotive business for over 80 years. Our family started in the franchised new car business, and over three generations, we've transitioned into the collision repair industry. We now own 7 auto collision centers around the Washington DC Metro area.

Being a leader in the auto collision industry means we are experts in painting technology. Our collision centers are all equipped with the latest equipment (paint booths, mixing rooms), and use the highest quality paints and materials that ensure your vehicle will look new again.

This knowledge and passion for painting technology lead us to Hydrographic printing, or water transfer printing. Hydrographic printing ("Hydro Dipping") is a method of applying printed designs to three-dimensional surfaces by dipping the item into a tank of water that has an ink film design floating on top. Once the item is dipped, the design adheres to it and the results are unique and totally amazing.

Initially, we focused on the automotive applications of this technology. Customers asked us to dip automotive accessories such as bug shields, wheels, license plate frames, motorcycle parts, and more. Once they showed their unique items off to their friends, our phone started ringing off the hook with requests for other items like hunting gear, sports equipment, and household items. We soon realized the applications are endless.

That is when we decided that we were on to something pretty special. So we decided to make our services available to everyone.
