Okay, scratch what I just wrote. It helps to really carefully read all the 
details of your mail:

You found an even slightly cheaper source. Printing costs are higher at least 
when ordering 500 shirts or more compared to Memo. As I don´t know what 
printing partner Memo uses, it may be fairer tough. For me a price of 7 Euro 
per T-Shirt is totally acceptable, so I see no point replacing printing by a 
cheaper option if that cheaper option is less fair or socially sustainable. 
(Given the mission of Memo I bet they take fairness into account for printing 
as well… but I didn´t found a definitive information on that.)
