    I'm looking to order between 5-10 custom polo shirts that have my logo on the front.

    Any recommendations on where to go? I have looked at Vistaprints but they have a really bad rep here on the forum and elsewhere on the web too.

    Low quantity, you'll struggle to find cheap pricing as screen printing is primarily used for larger runs. You'll be paying for setup costs more than the shirts and printing, themselves. Check out a few local print companies and ask around.

    Hmm...so Vistaprint has a bad reputation? I've ordered many times from Vistaprint, and I have nothing wrong to say about the results. Of course, the process of clicking "no thanks" to all the additional offers could be annoying...but still...worked out good for me!

    Really wish I could remember the company I used a few years ago when I had my vending company. I found them on the net by search for embroidered polo shirts.

    Best part was it was a credit ref for my company. :)

    If I can find the name of the company I used I'll repost here in this thread. And BTW the quality was really good.

    You can also buy some iron-on patches with the info printed on it, maybe be cheaper if you find a good price and are on a budget. Won't look as nice as the embroided version though of course.

    I hope this doesn't across as negative, i intend for it to be. Just pointing out something obvious.

    You can remember the keyword phrase you typed but not the business???

    Thats an IM'er for you.

    The problem with vistaprint is basicly that their prices are several times what other online printers ask and they tack on extra fees for almost anything.

    Thanks for the replies and Nookie, I'll try your search ;)

    At the moment I found this company here:
    Code:
    http://www.inkimprints.com/
    Just found them and so I haven't done my research on them yet but prices seem fair at least.

    No offense, but I think this is a dumb idea and a waste of money. You run a consulting business, not a mcdonalds. you dont need uniforms.

    Ahh I see, no worries. I dabble in a lot and this particular business that I own a share in cleans freshwater and saltwater aquariums so think petsmart and petco for dress attire.
