I'm guessing this reply is to me... you are confusing inventory with selection. Inventory is the amount of product while selection is the variety of product (or number of brands). TSC has bigger selection, Sanmar has lower prices.

If you don't mind me asking, do they set you up with case pricing when you first open up an account? I have that now with TSC, but having read so many good things about Sanmar I might want to open up an account with them.

Once your account is open they will send you an email telling you to call them and get your online user name and they will give you access to all prices.

Yes, I use SanMar's custom website. It is nice because they update it for you. Nothing to do from my end.

The customers asked to help them save some money, but what us making money?

Some have no clues to how much it cost to run silk screen and/or embroidery business. The Walmart clothing are not finished the same way that TSC, Alpha, Virginia ts, and others finished. They are treated differently because they are for silk screening and embroidery purposes. Some customers think that we are trying to rip them off!

San Mar is fantastic. They have always been there for us. We have done business with them for 3 years and they are always our first choice if it is an item they carry.

We especially like their private lable products. We sell a lot of their silk touch polos and just now started selling a lot of their basic T. It has a nice feel to it and prints well.

I do wish they carried more athletic items though-like an Augusta or Badger.

I'm going to have to chime in on this one. While I agree that when they start selling to just *anybody*, I would prefer to not do business.

However---you stated 2 customers that work out of their houses and just sell to their kids' schools.

That's EXACTLY how I got started. Although, I had a legitimate business license, TIN, etc. I registered my business name with my state, etc. Would that qualify me as a "real business", even though I worked out of my home? I'm just curious.

All of that work I did (embroidery) for my kids' school got me to where I am now. I have expanded to screen printing, a lot quicker than I expected, actually! And have found it NECESSARY to move out of my home and incur the overhead and move into commercial space.

I'd like to think that makes me a *real business*, even though I started out of my home.

FWIW

I agree...
You can work out of your house and still be a legitimate business. They key here is quality and customer service that is what is going to make or break a business.

BillyV,

Absolutely CS and quality should always be first and foremost. Coming from the CS industry and having worked in restaurants for longer than I care to think about, I pride myself on both this aspects. Which is why I have so many return customers, even when they knew I worked out of my house. I was giving them better quality AND better service. More personalized, etc.

Which is another reason I grew so fast and am now here. I hope it continues, I'm making a name for myself and my company name. THAT makes me proud.

In our town of 40,000 people there are 4 other screen printers that operate out of store fronts, and a couple of us working out of our home legally. We all charge similar prices and some do better niche' work on one style or another (i.e. I am the only one doing discharge) and yet most of us are making ends meet and growing by simply giving the customer what they want and knowing our limitations.
