While checking our social media accounts recently I noticed that a certain picture is doing the rounds again. I’m talking about the man sat in the tattooist’s chair as he is inflicted with what can only be described as a childlike stick drawing of what is supposed to be a majestic winged horse. The image bears the caption ‘there is always someone willing to do it cheaper,’ and this message really hits home to those of us who are painfully aware of that someone who is willing to do it cheaper, and exactly why they are willing to do so.
While price is undeniably an important factor when choosing a supplier, there are arguably multiple aspects to consider first. Primarily, will their product perform? Does it comply with all the relevant standards and is there test evidence to prove it? Can you trust that it is of high quality? After all, a guarantee is only as good as the company behind it. Can you sell it within your product range? Is it an attractive or workable design? Can you actually get the product? Even if it meets all the previous criteria, there’s little point if you have to wait months for something which is not currently in stock.
