Inside The Tint Pros, Inc. TM (TTP), Family Owned and operated by Lonnie and Greg Earl. Lonnie began tinting in 1979, while pursuing an Engineering career in Aerospace. In 1987, Lonnie opened a new shop on Talbert Ave in Huntington Beach. Lonnie continued in his Senior Engineer position with McDonnald Douglas/Boeing Corporation, while simultaneously operating The Tint Pros and tinting into late hours of the night and weekends. His drive and passion for window films and serving clients is what started the company and still drives it today.
Greg, Lonnie’s son, is now the operating partner. He grew up in the shop helping with various parts of the business. As he got older, he became more and more involved with the business. Greg was in high school when his father decided to make The Tint Pros full time; so Greg arranged his school schedule so he could tint after school and weekends. Greg’s passion for tinting, marketing, and service proved to be a perfect match. He went on to become one of the best tinters in the country and his marketing ideas brought a new feel to Lonnie’s current business and strong reputation. Now with the second generation of the company expanding in to new areas of the industry, The Tint Pros have been regarded as Eastman’s National Dealer of the Year in 2015 and reviewed as one of the highest quality window film companies in the nation. The Tint Pros also entered the large format printing and graphics world by acquiring Visual Imaging in 2019. By bringing this team under the TTP umbrella, The Tint Pros can now serve their clients with fast, affordable high quality prints, graphics and wraps!
