Formerly known as 'Yipes, Stripes' for nearly 20 years, Ted has been applying his graphics and pinstriping to anything with wheels; working up and down the West Coast since the mid 70's. With a degree in graphic design, and a reputation for being one of the ''Top Guns'' in his field, he has hand lettered and pinstriped over 23,000 projects for most of the high end auto dealers in the Bay area of San Francisco such as Mercedes, BMW, Rolls Royce, Jaguar, Infiniti, and many more. Also, many Silicon Valley executives such as Apple's Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs would bring their vehicles to Ted for his 'final touch' of class! Also, Ted applied his skills to many autos of the San Francisco Forty-niners for over 20 years.
Nicknamed ''The Stripemeister'' by his clients, Ted has worked on projects ranging from prestige and classic cars and hot rods...to boats, motorcycles, office windows, car show signs, airplanes, and even a few go-karts ! Although his craft is something that is fast disappearing from the American culture, Ted still does everything free hand with paint. If you have an idea that needs help to develop, Ted is happy to lend his skill and expertise and many years of experience to make it 'come to life'.
