Seeking a print on demand dropshipper that offers 100% moisture wicking performance shirts

Hey Shopifiyers,

We have been using Printful & Printaura for over a year and they are top quality, no complaints. 

We are looking to add performance wear to our store & this is something neither offer.

We found Custom Cat through the Shopify app store and they offer 100% performance shirts. We sampled their work and it was awful! The order took nearly a month to arrive! The embroidery looked like a child's handwriting, the designs on the performance shirts were both botched. They printed our logo twice in one print location. The designs were crooked and blotchy on both shirts. Their work was hideous, it was unbelievable. No company should trust Custom Cat with their customer orders. Shopify should not reccomend or offer this app any longer. 

Printify offers these shirts but they do not have a mockup generator that offers models or ghost mockups. This is not a deal breaker, however, it is a set back.

That being said we are still in search of a reliable print provider that offers 100% polyester performance shirts. 

Preferably one that offers a mockup generator with models. 

If you have any recommendations please share them with us. 

We greatly appreciate your help!

Hi there, Jess!

Don here from Shopify. :)

Sorry to hear that you've had a bit of a hard time so far with getting a print-on-demand service that meets your needs.

As you've already been doing, the best thing you can do to assess the work of any service is to actually order a product from them to see how long it takes, what the quality and fidelity of your designs in like in their work.

While I'm not personally familiar with any services that would do what you need here, you can check out the full range of print on demand services in our app store here.

Hopefully, some other members of our community will be able to chip in here with their own experiences from using such services themselves to help out. :)

Best of luck with finding a suitable partner to work with!

Did you have any luck finding performance wear? I am looking for a print on demand that has good quality fishing/sun shirts with a Sun protection. I could only find one on a Printful and one on CustomCat and neither are exactly what I am looking for.

Hey there,
Thanks for reaching out!
We personally had a poor experience with Custom Cat & wouldn't trust their lack of quality control being sent to customers.
We found Viral Style offers performance shirts but we have yet to sample their work.
While there are many out there that offer these shirts, most require bulk orders, few offer one off prints.
For the most part we are still keeping our eyes peeled.
