Serious question. We are shopping for a print-on-demand service and are considering Printful.
People say Printful has the best quality out of other print on demand companies. I have only tried Printful so that bums me out. I have order 4 samples at different times from them and it looks so low quality.
I have only had sayings printed, so can't speak on how artwork would look. When comparing them with shirts I had printed at my local screen printing place, it's crazy how much lower of quality the print is from Printful.
I'm not knowledgeable about screen printing processes, so I don't know if they use different machines or different processes. It's just a bummer because I was looking forward to drop shipping my designs and this makes me feel at a loss.
The reviews seem to good to be true! More than 2300 and all 5 stars? This kind of thing makes me a little skeptical, so I'd like to hear some first-hand stories. What has been your experience using it?
To compare and contrast below are examples of Printful vs. my local print screen-printing place:

How does it compare to TeeSpring and others?
