Center caps, paint and a body shop.. (question)

So my wheel didn't come with center caps and i saw the stock ones.. i don't like how the cap is chrome and the rim is bronze. the cap is also a weird shape/design. I'm looking at buying some cheap center caps and having them painted the same colour as the wheels.

I've looked for the colour before at paint shops, canadian tire, lordco, etc and no luck. theres nothing really close at all.

anyways, my question is... can i have the center caps custom painted at a body shop? i go to this one local bodyshop whenever i need a vehicle repaired. what would the average bodyshop charge to paint these for caps? also, is it possible to have the paint loaded into a spray paint can at the shop? i've heard that this is possible but don't know what the cost of the loaded can would be.

any ideas? thanks a lot

No idea on price, shop around for quotes.

Yes, I know when cars are painted, they give you a bottle of touch up paint.
