It’s hard to walk three feet these days without hearing about supply chains. Merchandise is stuck on container ships. No one can get the supplies they need from overseas, so manufacturing is grinding to a halt. It’s the end of the world!
Okay, so maybe not THAT extreme, but you get the point.
The fact remains that supply chains are an issue, and yes, we’re feeling it at the Turn90 Print Shop. Absolutely. Sometimes we go to order a cut/fabric/brand of t-shirt we’ve ordered a million times and it’s just…not…there…
Frustrating? Sure. But the good news is this isn’t life or death. It’s only branded merchandise.
“We’ve got solid workarounds,” says Turn90 Director of Social Enterprise Leslie Simmons. “If we can’t find an exact brand or fabric, we’ll do our best to find the closest possible garment to meet your needs.
So how can you help ensure your ordering process with Turn90 goes smoothly?
“Well, for one, check our online catalog,” continues Simmons. “That’s updated in real time so it’ll let you know if a garment isn’t available, and you can find something similar before you even contact us.”
It’s also a time to be a little flexible, says Simmons. “We’ve had times where we’ve worked with our customer to find the right garment, and by the time we refresh the screen to order, it’s gone. So we find the next best thing.”
This isn’t a problem unique to Turn90, Simmons adds. Print shops around the country are facing similar issues, but with patience and persistence, we’re all managing to get the jobs done for our customers every day.
