How do you know that the cost of the t shirt printing service you choose is reasonable? Different services are available at different rates. It can, therefore, feel like a daunting task to ensure that the printing service you choose is appropriately priced. However, it is not as difficult as you think it to be.
Here are a few tips that can help ensure that you pay the right price for the right service.
Ask for quotes. It is a good idea to ask for a price quote from a printing service before you make any decision about this. Many t shirt printing companies offer an instant price quote when you fill in the necessary details online. Many others provide a quote via mail if you send them the details of the order.
The online option is favoured because people prefer the convenience it offers. All you need to do is fill in the details of the order, such as the size, type, volume, colours, designs and so on, on the online form. Some online tools generate an instant quote. Some printing companies check your specifications and send a quote via email.
It is easier to get an accurate price quote if you have determined the specifications of your order. Also, keep in mind that some t shirt printing companies provide an all-inclusive quote, others may provide a low initial quote at first and then add up to this later. You need to check the details of what the quote includes to avoid this hassle.
Compare prices. After you have the quotes from a number of printing services, it is time to compare costs. This would help you find a quality service at a reasonable cost. Focus on the two important points – quality service and reasonable cost. The cheapest may not be the best, as they may not be able to provide good quality printed tees.
Make sure your emphasis is on both the quality and the cost; to do this, check the product gallery of the t shirt printing companies. Do the tees look good? Do the designs look attractive? Do the colours look gorgeous? It is easy to determine the quality of the printing service from their finished products.
To make an accurate price comparison, make sure you provide the same order specifications to all the companies. If you order 5 printed tees with a complex image and a two line text from one company, and 5 printed tees with a simple one colour design from another, no accurate comparison can be done.
Ask for freebies. A printing company may offer a little something if you ask. For example, a service may give you free shipping and delivery of the goods on a very large order. This may cut down the costs considerably. However, you may not even know about it if you do not ask them about it.
When you ask for a price quote, make sure you ask whether the shipping and delivery charges are included in this. Many tshirt printing companies offer shipping and delivery of the finished products at no extra cost. However, it is not a good idea to assume things. You had better enquire about it before you order the batch of printed tees.
Though free shipping and delivery can decrease the cost of the custom-designed t shirts, you need to make sure that it does not affect your choice. If a company offers this for free, but quotes a high price for printing the t shirts, it would be of no use. Check the overall cost of the printing service to determine whether this freebie makes any sense.
