Wondering where to buy felt? Here at Spectex, we might be a little biased, but we also have decades of experience to back up our felt expertise. One of the main complaints we hear when new customers reach out to us is that they’ve purchased felt produced cheaply overseas and have been dissatisfied. Unfortunately, for customers in manufacturing, it goes beyond dissatisfaction. Wasting money on low quality felt is more than a disappointment, it’s a misstep that slows production and sales or affects customer satisfaction and product quality. When you choose to work with a company like Spectex who produces high quality felt here in the US, the difference is clear.
Quality Standards & Industry Experience
Low prices can be tempting, especially when they come from an overseas seller who promises high quality and offers photos that look convincingly good. We’ve heard the same story dozens of times from clients who inevitably come to us for their order. They made a purchase at a deep discount from an overseas seller and received a low quality product that couldn’t be used, couldn’t be returned, and resulted in a huge waste of time and money. Time is money after all, and if you have to wait for an overseas shipment only to find that the product you’ve received is unusable, then you’ve wasted both! When you choose to order your felt from Spectex, you can count on a great deal and a high quality product made in the US.
