The Benefits of Working with a Local Screen Printing Company
January 25, 2021at10:30 PM
There are more screen printers and embroidery companies online than ever before. But working with a local screen printing company means getting a better quality product with a fast turnaround. You’re not alone if low prices lured you into working with an unreliable company with a faraway location. You may have gotten as far as placing your order before realizing you have no direct way to get in touch with the company.
Instead, consider a local screen printing company for your next print or embroidery project. There are myriad benefits to keeping your business local; we’ll go over them here.
Take advantage of in-person meetings to talk about design and see proofs.
The world is smaller and more connected than ever before, but nothing beats being able to talk to someone face-to-face about the vision you have for your product. It’s not always easy to express what you want in a virtual space, and it’s easy to lose valuable time during the day sending endless emails to clarify an element of your design or your order.
You can save on shipping.
You may think you’re getting a great deal on your order until you get to shipping. Or, you feel compelled to increase the size of your order to qualify for free shipping. When you work with a local company, the shipping discount can add up to serious savings. Some local companies may even let you pick up your order in person, not only saving money postage but also saving you time.
You get personalized service from people who care.
Companies that work with customers across the country or worldwide don’t have the same dedication to service that your local screen printing company does. They have too many orders to check in with their customers and provide personalized service.
Instead, you submit to a one-size-fits-all process when you place an order. Often it’s impossible to get a designer or customer service agent on the phone.
When you work with a local company, they have a local phone number you can call with questions, concerns, or a simple follow-up with your order. You’re working with someone who’s invested in your satisfaction.

Competitive pricing gives you more for your dollar.
Online screen printers and big national companies advertise their low prices–and not much else. Again, you’re not alone if you’ve clicked a Google Ad because a company fits your budget. But you’re often hit with additional fees and costs the further along in the process you get. By then, you’ve sunk enough time with design upload and product selection; you just accept the fees and place the order.
Your local screen printing company will provide you with a complete quote upfront. Chances are it’s the same or less than those national chains and online companies. You’ll know how much your project will cost right from the start.
