If price point is the biggest factor, then FX or CD sails might be the way to go.
We have a new mainsail on order. We went with the local loft of a larger international sail manufacturer. I like to get more on-site service, with a sailmaker coming to the boat and taking measurement, etc. I also like that the sail we ordered is made domestically, rather than "overseas".
In addition to taking measurements on our boat, we were able to spread the old main out on the floor of the sail loft and discuss the layout of reefs, battens, etc. Unless you are especially good at drawing and communicating these details, it's helpful to do it in person with the sailmaker. Also, almost any new sail is gong to require a few tweeks to get it just right, so a local loft makes returning for adjustments that much easier.
Just my 2 cents...
