An outsource lab calls me up and wants to send me some work...Do I...
A) Bring it. Cant say no to money coming in.
B) Do it, i'm flattered they thought about using my work and this can help pay some supply costs.
C) Do it for a bit and only take the units I want.
D) No, My business is built upon quality not price, and my reputation is known for it.This is why my doctors us me and not them....See more They are my competition and this is only helping them out. They would be selling my art & product and calling it their own. Would Van Gogh let you sell one of his paintings with your name on it and call it his own.
E) No, Outsource labs are hurting our industry for the businessman that is trying to make a quality buck on a quality product. By helping them, I am only helping a business that hurts us in the end.
