Don’t Turn Away Work – Contract It Out

Please find some links and notes from the 2 Regular Guys Podcast. This show will focus on the finer points of working with a contract company. All too often we tell our customers, sorry we can’t do that for them and give them the reason to go up the street to your competitor. We want to talk to you about how to best contract it out and make the process as easy as possible for you. We will bring Greg Kitson onto the show from Mind’s Eye Graphics who is a long time contract decorator to share details about what to expect, what questions to ask and what the best practices are when working with a contract decorator.
