Hey Guys,
I have 3 games already designed,
I was working with a manufacturer from China but they were not responsive enough and I feel like it's taking them way too long to respond and follow through with my requests. zombie

Therefore I'm looking for other options.

Do you know and can recommend some good, honest, reliable and fast-acting manufacturers from anywhere in the world?

Much appreciated.
ADN.

what volume are you working with, and where are you located?
The three I can recommend that are good and well liked here are:
http://www.printplaygames.com/
https://www.thegamecrafter.com/
http://www.boardgamesmaker.com/
but these are intended for low print runs or on demand so I'm not exactly sure there the best option, depends on your goal/volume

You should probably also be aware that if you are looking for something larger than print on demand that you are also at the mercy of the scheduling of the printers. Idle machines/workers is bad, so they will set up as many jobs as far out as they can to ensure that things are constantly working. If your job can slip in between other jobs, then you may be able to get it faster, but generally, you'd get pushed to the next open slot, which may be months down the road.

The ones Maf Man mentioned above are mostly print on demand short run printers and thus very expensive, though fast.

This blog should help you find some other China factories to contact.

Long Pack, Whatz Games, and Win Go are all good alternate choices.

Cool, I thought it was just Japan. I use http://www.boardgamesmaker.com/ or http://makeplayingcards.com/ who are based in China, and had no issues during this time of the year.
