There aren’t many good printers left out there. There are only A Few Good Printers:
Customer: I want to think about it.
DCP: You want the shirts?!
Customer: I want a proof.
DCP: YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE PROOF!
DCP: “Son, we live in a world that has decorated apparel, and that apparel is printed and embroidery by men with equipment. Who’s gonna do it? You? You, Mr. Customer? We have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for your bad artwork, and you curse the promotional companies that are a middle man for your project. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what we know. That misprinted shirts, while tragic, probably saved projects. And our existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves wardrobes. You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want us decorating your apparel, you need us decorating your apparel! We use words like print, embroidery, and artwork. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent printing items. You use them as a punchline. We have neither the time nor the inclination to explain ourselves to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the awesome apparel that we provide, and then questions the manner in which we provide it. We would rather you just said “thank you”, and call back about your next project. Otherwise, we suggest you pick up a squeegee, and start printing. Either way, we don’t give a damn what you think you are entitled to.
Customer: Did you print those kick @$$ shirts?
DCP: You’re Go@#$amn right we did!
