    So easy

    Published by N/A on 07/28/2019

    Easy to paint! The top is a little more difficult because of the rough surface, but overall it was way easier. Paying a little extra for a ready to paint cooler is worth it

    I love this cooler!

    Published by Jennifer Ryan on 07/23/2019

    I purchased this cooler, because one of my friends had previously and highly recommended it, and I absolutely love it. It's the perfect size, and it is so much easier than buying one at the store that you have to sand and prime. The surface is smooth and great for painting. I would definitely buy it again.

    Great Cooler

    Published by Sabrina M on 04/05/2019

    I purchased this for a spring formal and it worked great! I was so happy to find this company and make this formal a little easier. I wish the cooler was a little bit bigger but overall it still fits a lot

    Had issues with peeling

    Published by Katlyne Rundle on 04/02/2019

    I had a lot of issues with my paint peeling off this product. It was nice to save time and not sand things, but I worry that my paint won’t last on the cooler for more than a month. Not worth the money I paid to have a cooler that had a lot of chipping happening from the beginning.

    Amazing customer service

    Published by Reagan on 06/25/2018

    Super convenient if you don’t want to do the boring sanding and priming. Unfortunately I had some problems with delivery but when I contacted customer service they were very prompt to respond and fixed the problem immediately!

    The Best Way to do this..

    Published by Leigh Evans on 05/24/2018

    Finished my third cooler. If you are just interested in the art aspect and getting right to the design/painting etc, using Coolers by U is easily the best way to go. I used old school overhead projector. Traced my design, and I was painting my first side in 15 minutes. The 26 qt is a great size for most uses, and from a purely cooler aspect, it does a great job of keeping things cold too. Shipped fast and great customer service. No complaints here, Will be using again for X-mas presents in a few months.

    Paint went on smooth and didn't chip. The only issue is that the handle hits the back of the top when it opens so it messed up my paint unless I was careful to open the top while holding the handle a little so it wouldn't interfere. Love the cooler though!

    I ordered this for a fraternity formal and have had no problems at all. Yes, the top is bumpy, but that didn't pose any problems for me. The paint goes on smooth and doesn't chip easy. Mostly, I'm just thrilled that I didn't have to sand and prime! This cooler is great, amazingly priced, and I would highly recommend!

    Favorite Cooler

    Published by Sammie K on 03/25/2018

    I brought from this company last year for my boyfriends fraternity formal in April and he loved it! I just brought another one for this upcoming one because of how high-quality the last one was. With no sanding or prepping I was able to paint right on it and he uses it all the time!
