Our Services

European Mounts


DIPT Hydrographics is unique in the fact that we have a background in professional taxidermy and are a registered taxidermy shop in the State of Michigan.  We continue with that passion and specialize in European skull mounts as well as custom plaques. Some of the largest Taxidermists and Deer Processor’s in Michigan trust us with their skulls.  This is because DIPT Hydrographics has grown a reputation that utilizes only the best products and methods in the industry to ensure a professional quality mount and unsurpassable longevity.  Whether it’s a traditional Clean and Bleach or a custom look with a dipped pattern of your choice, DIPT Hyrdographics has you covered!

Why choose a European mount over a traditional shoulder mount?

Cost!  A European mount costs nearly ONE-THIRD that of a shoulder mount!  You could mount three skulls for the price of one traditional mount.  More money in your pocket at the end of the day is never a bad thing and you are still able to capture the memories of that hunt on your wall to invoke story telling and bragging rights for decades to come!

Space! Shoulder mounts can start taking their toll on wall real estate.  A European mount fits nicely in a corner, on an end table, or as a centerpiece.  They don’t protrude as far from a wall either, making it a perfect choice in tight spaces, or when your significant other starts complaining about all the dead animals that you call trophies on the wall.

Automotive, ATVs, UTVs, & Golf Carts


DIPT Hydrographics is registered with an FFL (Federal Firearms License).  We take firearms seriously, which is why local gun distributors use DIPT to customize their inventory.  As avid hunters ourselves, we understand what to expect from firearms.  We use only the best automotive grade products in the industry and pay due diligence during every step of our process to ensure your firearm’s performance and durability when it matters most.  Unless otherwise requested, our last step consists of using a specialized “Dead Flat” protective coating with only a 1% “gloss” to give it that factory finish, without making you stand out like a sore thumb while you’re hunting game.  We also understand the importance of bragging rights and we will do our best to make sure that when you open your firearm case in front of your buddies, you WILL be envied.

Your products never leave our shop to be outsourced, ever.  We handle every step in the process of customizing your ride.  Add carbon fiber to specific parts for that custom look that will set your ride apart from the rest!   Or dip that ATV or Side by Side for a one of a kind look you cannot buy in stores!
