Artist and Builder Features

We love shining a spotlight on the wonderfully talented kustom kulture artists from all over the world. We want to showcase builders, pinstripers, sign painters, kustom painters, engravers, tattoo artists, fabricators, and more! 

Please take a moment to follow our Submission Guidelines document, particularly with regard to photo resolution to submit your art for a feature. 

Write a How-To or Step-by-Step

We love to print how-tos and step-by-steps to help the aspiring artists and builders. Take photos of the key steps along the way along with one or two sentences for each step. We like to have 10-15 steps. Send us high resolution photos and the write-up to review. Make sure your photos are well lit and are clear enough for printing. Email your photos and captions to the email address below.

Write an Article

We'd love to read your stuff, so long as it fits the kustom kulture theme. Generally we like to receive 500 words first. Articles with high resolution photos or artwork have a better chance at publication. Send your photos and article, or article pitch, to the email address below.


Product Reviews

We are always interested in receiving products to give our honest reviews. Send us an email for mailing instructions.

Press Releases

We welcome press releases for events, news and notes from the kustom scene, new products, and services and items of general interest. So if you've won an award, are putting on an event, have a new product or service, let us know!
