I am in a dilemma between choosing 2 printers in my area, one offers a much better wholesale deal vs the other but the cheaper printer is a lil less organized.

The one with better pricing store looks rather unpleasing to the eye, boxes thrown everwhere, offices are pigstyes, walls have fingerprints all on them and out of 5 workers, only 1 spoke English and it seem as if their site was kinda misleading yet they offered everything I am wanting : 120-190/1 color = $1.90, puff additive = free and tag screen printing = $.50 p/shirt. Now the other place was in a warehouse and also stated that they screenprint for bands, schools, clothing lines ect. and there website look professional as well. But here are there prices: 100-249/1 color = $5.70, puff additive = $1 p/color, and tag printing is $1 p/shirt.

Of course anyone would go for the lesser price but after seeing the interior, would u change ur mind? And are their prices a lil too good to be true?

Ignore the state of the shop and look at the quality of the prints.

No good getting cheap if your shirts look like crap.

Ask for a referral from a previous customer with a similar order to yours. Find out if there were delays or any problems.

My shop is outrageous - ink pots everywhere on the table and boxes stacked all over.

But noone else here can touch the prints I do and my customers are as loyal as hell to me. That's why I have boxes and ink pots everywhere ;)

All my time goes into print quality and looking after my customers. How my shop looks is the last of my priorities.

Saying that, I'm a solo shop. If I had the resources, I'd have the shop tidied right up!
