^My local printer and shop is trying to charge me $5.50 for white and $6.50 for colors. I'm def not down for that so thats why I'm investigating other options.
JUST FOR THE SHIRTS??
Yeah shop around in that one bro. The only good thing about printers providing shirts is if they mess up a shirt it's on them and they'll have to provide a replacement.
Some other shops if you provide they say do so @ your own risk. If one is messed up they did little to replace or charge for an addition shirt but maybe do the print for free.
I'm sure they shouldn't have a problem if you point them to a certain website that has the shirts @ a lower cost and purchasing from them. They may have to set up an account with them but that shouldn't be hard at all.
One issue I had with a printer:
Printed some shirts. About 2-3 months later I got around to do a sample wash on one that my wife dried as well. The print came out faded. I asked the printed and he said "oh they may need a extra flash dry applied to them"
Got me pissed off. Although it was my fault for doing a test wash 2 month later I think any professional printer should atleast do a test wash on the shirt themselves to make sure they are providing a good print rather then just wasting money and time and printing 50 shirts the same way. Without testing.
Just a FYI for anyone who is printing through someone else. I would def. ask for this sort of quality control before picking up or finalizing a order.
