    After seeing all the bad post about vendors on HW I was thinking we should list who to stay away from. This I determined was a bad idea because it would just cuase more arguments on the forum and I don't think that is good for the industry. So my next idea was to see if people would post there good experiences with vendors and a list of the ones they like and trust. I am not looking for a list of just the big boys but also some of the small guy that give great service. Some of the smaller suppliers do a great job and deserve the recognition to help there business grow. As far as myself it would be imaginArts Studios - flexible to deal with and good products, Fright Props for the fastest shipping in the business, shipwreck productions for great prices, Haunted House Supplies for educational DVD selection, Unit 70 for quality, Sinister signs for price, and Gore Galore for some of the best costumes. I almost for got Stuartizim - Stuart Smith one of the best 3D artist out there and one of the easiest guy I have had the pleasure of working with. Ok that's my list lets see yours and if your vendor is not one of the more main stream vendor please share what they make. Thanks

    There are tons of them out there ... I'd have to make a list and it would be several pages long.

    We all know Gore Galore does a great job. I love Ghost Ride, Unit 70, and who hasn't been using Distortions for years? I really like Robert Kurtzmans stuff in fact I like most of the mask companies out there they are all great. I don't see anyone getting screwed by the mask companies so I think we are safe there!

    I did order something from Fright Props and it was on my door quick... there are so many out there I'd have to make a very long list.

    But its a ton! Most of these vendors are very good people with great intentions and I think some vendors who get a bad rap meant well just didn't understand what it really takes to do this. Same with haunt owners they have great intentions and something doesn't go right it happens... its business. I would however agree you have people out to do nothing but screw ya those are the ones to look out for!

    Larry you or someone else booted eric from Shipwreck productions. And he is one of the nicest most honest guys in the industry with great products and unbelievable prices. Super fast shipping and incredible customer service goes above and beyond to work with a client we bought a unit 70 hatchet man from him and the customer service continued after delivery please contact eric and let them come back to the forums he did not deserve to be kicked from forums he did not know about the ebay posting rules. But yet other vendors continue to pump there ebay merch on here. Thats unfair thanks. For listening

    Larry I haven't seen anything in your haunt from Distortions in many years, maybe going back to the foam angel prop. Do you have a lot if their stuff?

    Kaotic thanks for your post but this is for who you like, not to say that someone is else is wrong, I like Eric too and that is why I posted it but I want this to be a positive thread not about any other issues with people or vendors. I have had issues with guys that other people love so it must have been an Isolated incident. I forgot to list on my list Brandon at Scareprops, he has been great to deal with and alway professional. I agree with Larry that the list could be long for a lot of people and that is the point to this, we sometimes focus on the few bad guys and forget about the numerous others that do a great job. If you read the forum you know it has been vendor negetive the last few months and someone pointed that out to me. Thanks guys.

    Just had a recent order with XtremeCreators all i can say is the products & service was Fantastic! They answered everyone phone call and email along the way & explained what was to be expected. Extremely helpful and was on TIME ! This is a excellent vendor haunters if your serious in having professional quality props & effects in your attraction. I will for sure be doing more business with this vendor in the future.

    Thumbs up for Poison Props. I have been buying from Adam for the last three years and everything has been terrific. The quality of the props and customer service is outstanding.

    I have had good luck with xtreme too. They always answer the phone and emails. I bought some used stuff off John and was always happy with the price and quality.

    Dapper Cadaver, great and unusual stuff. Fright Props always - I always get my stiff super quick. Mehron - one of the bigger guys but of the bigger guys their stuff is quality, and I have no issues with their makeup. Gag Studios - when one of my props got knocked over and busted they stepped right up and offered all the replacement parts quickly, no problems. Haunted Memories - cool pictures and I know he was having a tough time at TW last year because it was just Ed by himself, and he was scrambling trying to keep his orders straight but he did and we got everything from him quickly and accurately. Dark Light has great product and great customer service. Quan is always quick to reply to his emails and answer any technical stuff you might have. There are several others that have always done us right but I cant think of them right now.
