We often get asked if we carry Blue Corner shirts from Manila, the short answer to this is no we do not carry these shirts. There are a couple of reasons why we do not offer our customers Blue Corner shirts, and here they are:
Blue Corner shirts are too expensive. In today’s market and reality, we need affordable t-shirts. Whistler is cheaper at almost the same quality as Blue Corner shirts. This gives you a larger budget to purchase other company uniform requirements. If you want to spend that much we suggest Lifeline shirts.
Blue Corner Philippine shirts began a long time go but have deteriorated in quality. They are still made of cotton but the composition is different compared to in the past. Whistler only compromises a bit yet maintains the same thickness as the Blue Corner brand.
Blue Corner does more shirt printing as one of their core businesses hence there is a conflict of interest when you begin you shirt purchases with them. The Shirt & Uniform Outlet only does shirt printing as a value added. We are in the business of wholesale shirts. This alone keeps us busy and preoccupied.
Blue Corner used to get fabric from one of our associate companies but we were told did not end up finishing the deal. We find this an indicator of poor business practices.
Blue Corner has no/few physical location or as many distributors as Whistler shirts, therefore it is harder to receive proper customer service and resupply last minute shirt orders through them. If you have any problems you should be able to reach any of the Whistler distributors with ease and convenience.
Blue Corner is still a decent brand and still receives praise on occasion, but most companies looking to service higher volume t-shirts usually go with Whistler, Flipper, and Southport. What’s most important in the end for serious shirt suppliers is availability and steady supply, all of which we here at the Shirt & Uniform try our best to keep consistent.
