Hello everyone,

I'd like to get a piece of advice about the band merchandise printing factories. What's the best one for printing shirts in your opinion? Something which successfully combines the reliability, quality and good prices.

Thank you very much in advance!

Cheers

Moved this to the musicians forum. It really depends on your location, screen printing isn't something that requires too substantial of a setup, but the shipping cost will be a huge factor. Finding something relatively local, at least in the same country, would be a priority. You're based in western Russia/Sweden, correct? Porman may have a recommendation for Sweden, but I'm not sure who else might have an idea for that region.

Things to look for would be the quality/maker of shirts they use, and a guarantee of alignment/print quality. One thing that always bothers me is how many shirts I have paid $20 for that have noticeably crooked printing.

Thank you!
Yeah, you got our location right :)
But the thing is that I've heard that there are some affordable options in other EU and even US countries, which try to cut the shipping costs down. So it will be quite cool and reasonable to check out every factory, which has a good reputation and just ask them about the shipping costs.

So if someone knows a good and reliable ones, please just write them here.

Generally, I believe it's cheaper to print them other than Sweden, but I would check with www.vodrecords.se/

Thanks, man, will do! :)
If not Sweden, which countries/factories can you think of?

Never ever Vista Print..Got 4 shirts from them made up, and there's now only one that isn't basically destroyed. Just a mess :P
