We have been using The Real Merch Co. (www.realmerch.co).
They have been great! We had a few issues with other printers but these guys had both screen printing and dtg for our larger orders. Also, their dtg quality was the best so far.
I would check out The Real Merch Co. (www.realmerch.co). They are great since they offer bulk screen priting and dtg fulfillment for standard one off orders. The quality hands down is the best we have found. Haven't had a problem yet!
What might your expenses be in the event that you needed to request in mass, bundle, boat, procedure requests, procedure returns and print marking stickers to upgrade the bundling? I think it is a reasonable cost for all that they're putting forth you. Very few individuals (myself included as I have 2 dress brands I run utilizing Printful) can stand to buy 50x of every outline in every size. That includes speedy.
I appreciated your comments, as I'm stuck at this juncture! I am interested to know if you can elaborate a little more, if it's appropriate and you're comfortable.
I have been looking at Printful, and while they seem great I keep resisting since I jumping in since I would also love to find a vendor more local to me. I have even considered designing around transfers vs. print and getting a heat press just so I could do this.
If you can say, which shops did you work with that integrate with Shopify, and what were the areas you found lacking? Profit margings, shipping, item quality?
Also, is the local company doing print fulfillment for you using digital printing? And are they shipping for you or do you pick up/ship yourself?
I hope this isn't too much as I know many of the companies integrating with Shopify seem to be doing a great job, I just like having more control over the product and profit margins, and also want to be set up in a way I can manage growth and expand more independently in some areas if I can. Thank you!
Don't use Printful. I have been very disappointed with their quality. Several shirts sent back because the design cracks and peels off after one washing. Now I have very unhappy customers. I would appreciate any recommendations if you can offer any.
I honestly can't recommend printpit.co.uk enough, they do custom t shirts and my AM told me they have hoodies, vests, bags mugs and some other stuff i can't remember coming in in the next couple of weeks but they also have a catalogue of best sellers so you can start your shop and it doesnt look brand new
