What to Look for When Choosing a SupplierBy Shirtspace | Dec 22, 2016 | Updated Oct 23, 2020
In the age of the internet, information is at our fingertips. As consumers, our options are plentiful, regardless of what’s on our shopping list. The world of blank apparel is no different, so with countless retailers on the market today, how do you know which supplier to choose?
First and foremost, whether you’re a screenprinting hobbyist, run a successful screenprinting shop, or are simply looking for fashionable clothing options to add to your wardrobe; cost is an important factor in any purchase you make. As such, it’s no surprise that most people’s first consideration is the price per piece, after having found their sought after item.
A couple of important factors to keep in mind when reviewing prices on any online retailer’s site, is that there are often additional fees on top of the item price you see. In addition, you may also encounter a minimum order requirement, in which case you would likely be unable to purchase 1 or a few tees and would instead be required to purchase a designated quantity. On top of that, there is almost always shipping charges that you must factor into your overall total.
Another extremely important factor to consider when choosing your supplier, is the time frame in which you should expect to receive your items. In the world of screenprinting, time is of the essence and quick shipping is almost as important as price. For example, if you found that you’d save .05 per piece on an order of shirts you needed to place, but you wouldn’t receive your shipment for 5-7 business days, many printers in the industry would opt to pay .05 more per shirt to ensure that they’d receive their items quickly and complete their rush order on time. Timing is everything!
Finally, while difficult to quantify, finding a supplier that offers excellent customer service is priceless. Whether you need assistance choosing shirts for an upcoming charity event, would like some guidance in determining which sizes to order, or heaven forbid, need help resolving an issue that may arise with your order- quality customer service is of the utmost importance.
