I do sublimation on all kinds of things including fabric. What are you having problems with?
You need to define "big" as people have different capabilities depending on their printers and presses.Hi,
Thanks for getting back to me. Well I am having a hard time finding someone who does sublimation for big pieces of fabric, and who does small amounts like 100 pieces per design. Also I need somebody who is close to my town. I am from LA CA.
While I think you are trying to make a point here I think it is based on many assumptions. There was no request for quick turn around samples and nothing about a picky client or that it was bad to go local.While I do agree that the OP should have outsourced it out of town when it came down to outright losing the customer, I don't see any reason why it would be bad to want to keep it local. They had never seen any samples from any of the people posting. Not saying their work isn't quality, but if the customer is very very picky, then maybe the OP would want to go directly to the shop and get sample to show the customer before actually placing the order. I doubt they would have had time to order a sample, wait for it to be mailed, and then place the order, especially if the customer was unwilling to pay the overnight fees.
Some customers prefer a crappy job better than a good one because "it looks better to me". The OP would be sitting on a bunch of useless stock and lost the customer anyway if they didn't like it. A customer who bails just because you couldn't do one thing may not even be worth keeping. If I go to one store and they're out of something so I have to go to their competitor to get it, that doesn't mean I'm going to quit going there, unless they're constantly out of stock of what I need. We don't know anything about that part of the situation.
