About Us

Hi there! We're the tech enthusiasts from Sweden behind paintbase.app.


Our story with Paintbase began in the chilly winter of 2022 in Helsinki, Finland.


After a decade of research, we finally had cracked the code for color codes for cars.


Our mission is to untangle this extremely messy world of car color codes and build the best possible solution for people looking to buy paint for their cars. 🇸🇪🚗🎨


We're a small (but mighty) team of developers and designers who get unreasonably excited about:

  • Building useful tools that make life easier
  • The perfect shade of Stockholm sky blue
  • Fika breaks (obviously)
  • Debating whether coral is more orange or pink


With over 10 years of navigating the car industry's twists and turns, we're still amazed at how tricky finding the right color code can be. It's like trying to assemble IKEA furniture without instructions – frustrating and potentially expensive if you get it wrong!


That's the reason we decided to roll up our sleeves and get to work. Our goal is to create a service so simple, even your grandma could find her car's color code (no offense, Grandma, you're great with tech!).


We're constantly tinkering and improving, because let's face it – this color code jungle isn't going to clear itself. So stick around, and let's make the world a more colorful place, one correctly painted car at a time!


Happy color hunting!
