Their products are great, and they integrate seemlesy into Squarespace. Also orders are turnkey unlike Printify who makes you jump through hoops to get your order into production.

Shipping isn't quick which is frustrating for some customers who are all used to Amazon shipping now.

What problems is Printful solving and how is that benefiting you?

We use Printful for merch to rep our nonprofit.

"Excellent Services"
What do you like best about Printful?

The things I find the most helpful when it comes to Printful. Is that they have a big selection of items to sell as merch. So sometimes it's hard to pick just one.

What do you dislike about Printful?

A few things I dislike about printful is there high shipping fees. And standards for buying in bulk. As well as no free shipping for in Canada and only the US. Which I find completely unfair.

What problems is Printful solving and how is that benefiting you?

They are helping me with printing and creating my metch with the designs and layouts I give them.

"The best way to sell your creative ideas"
What do you like best about Printful?

Printful offers a remarkably user-friendly and intuitive interface. The range of products available for selection is abundant, and their quality is exceptional. I particularly enjoy the flexibility of choosing the brand I wish to sell. Additionally, I value the convenience of utilizing other platforms for designing or leveraging Printful's existing template designs. However, my absolute favorite aspect is the branding component, which allows for the inclusion of personalized inserts bearing my own brand, adding a wonderful finishing touch.

What do you dislike about Printful?

While there are a couple of minor areas for improvement, they are by no means dealbreakers. One suggestion I have is enhancing the "saved template" feature to retain the settings applied during the design process. It can be a tad frustrating having to repeatedly modify identical wording.

What problems is Printful solving and how is that benefiting you?

Printful effectively addresses the typical expenses and logistical challenges that arise when launching a business and acquiring the necessary materials. By leveraging Printful, small and/or emerging business owners can save valuable time while sustainably bringing their creative ideas to fruition. As we are aware, a significant number of small businesses struggle due to the absence of a solid plan, an effective marketing strategy, and limited financial resources. However, Printful significantly enhances the chances of success by making it more achievable for these businesses to thrive.

"My eCommerce Savior"
What do you like best about Printful?

Printful is a Print-on-Demand company that is the leader in the business with millions of sales worldwide. It is both online and an App where you can create print-on-demand (POD) products using either your original art or their art and text to create designs to place on their enormous amount of products. They have a design editor, and the ability to push your products to places like Amazon, eBay, Etsy, and so many more. You can in most cases also write all the text -- title, description, keywords, etc, and use their mockups, offer sales, create your own pricing for products and it goes on and on. What I like most is it is free and helps me make money across the globe.

What do you dislike about Printful?

Though they are the leader -- even if Amazon Merch n Demand is coming up alongside them, their prices are really the highest in the industry for us to purchase wholesale, have printed, and shipped. That means I have to charge more when I use them for a product but their print and product quality saves the day. It is just too pricey for most of us.

What problems is Printful solving and how is that benefiting you?

Aside from being the best place to upload my designs and do all I have to do to create a product and push it to my online store(s), you have to have product photos in specific sizes, resolutions, and more for every platform you sell on and that is always different. Printful supplies you with all of the mockups you specifically chose. It is absolutely a lifesaver because I do not have the physical products, they do.

"Game Changing Technology and Exceptional Products"
What do you like best about Printful?

I was blown away at how easy it was to brand the merchandise and sync it with our WooCommerce bookstore on our WordPress website. I tried five other vendors and nothing compared--we either had to buy items in bulk or take users to an external website to place orders. Thanks to Printful technology, we now have a custom Bookstore where members can buy our branded swag without leaving our website. Their transactions are recorded in their profiles on our site, and they can choose items they want to have print-on-demand. Take a look at the result. See a screenshot of our bookstore http://assets.1791delegates.org/v/0IHQ7Dpg4Sf8C3uvCwFg and see a screenshot of our branded products: http://assets.1791delegates.org/v/cY7tUfWpbBBXklq0ibsA Overall, it took me less than three hours to create 16 branded products, select the product images, and integrate everything into our WordPress site. The Printful website is a master class on how to use technology to optimize efficiency. I was also amazed by the shipping process. For other vendors, we had to wait for six to nine weeks for bulk orders. Printful had items on my doorstep within a few days. And for things that look longer, they were there within ten days. And each item came with clear tracking notifications, so I knew exactly where the order stood. And the quality, wow. The products are exceptional. Our intricate logo looked great on the gym bag, embroidered shirts, mouse pad, greeting cards, and stickers, and everyone kept commenting on my Columbia fleece vest. Overall, Printful created game-changing technology that exceeds our expectations. Their print-on-demand business model is brilliant, and their products are gorgeous. Thank you, Printful, for all your hard work and commitment to excellence.

What do you dislike about Printful?

Honestly, my biggest lament is that I wish I had known about Printful a year earlier. The printing on the stainless steel didn't keep very well but all the other products were superior.

What problems is Printful solving and how is that benefiting you?

Printful solves three main problems for us: (1) Having to pre-pay bulk orders in hopes members of our association buy them at our annual meeting; (2) Having our members go to some other website to buy our branded products; and (3) Having no way to track our members' purchases. Thanks to Printful's print-on-demand model, our members go to our WordPress website and use our WooCommerce integration to buy branded swag without leaving our website. Our members see a clear history of what they purchased, and the items sync with Quickbooks for our bookkeeping. It's a brilliant system that they've created.

Ease of use and very helpful and quick support chat

Unfortunately, sometimes shipping can be high priced.

"Easy to use, Cost effective print on demand platform."
What do you like best about Printful?

Printful is very easy to use even if you are new to the print-on-demand business. I was able to set up - connect my store and sync my products in a matter of an hour.

What do you dislike about Printful?

The prices of some products are comparably high, but considering the quality, I think its ok

What problems is Printful solving and how is that benefiting you?

I am integrating print-on-demand products into my store to sell and Printful gave me a lot more than that. Printful gave me everything I need to lunch my print-on-demand business to the world.

"Very happy with our partnership with Printful"
What do you like best about Printful?

The Printful product selection is great, quality is always top-notch and the shipping speeds are very fast (even during the holiday season). Very happy about our partnership with Printful.

What do you dislike about Printful?

I wish there was more flexibility with the pricing. If the pricing was better I believe we could achieve a higher scale to our revenue and order volume. That would be my only complaint.

What problems is Printful solving and how is that benefiting you?

We are trying to provide customized clothing and other products to our customer base. Our customers really love the unique items they can find with us that they cannot find in stores.

"My 1st Sample Tote Bag"
What do you like best about Printful?

I am very pleased with the quality of the fabric used, as well as the print and manufacturing of my product. Very durable too.

What do you dislike about Printful?

I think it would be nice , especially for potential customers, to have the tote bag in some kind of packaging besides its shipping bag.

What problems is Printful solving and how is that benefiting you?

At the moment, I have not had any issues.

"Freedom to create quality products"
What do you like best about Printful?

I am a creator by nature, I love designing and selling what I create. Printful allows me to do that without having endless amounts of inventory on hand. While still allowing me to purchase Items I need if I have an event.

What do you dislike about Printful?

I wish I could mass pick items to upload into my store without having to do each individually. It's a blessing and a curse.

What problems is Printful solving and how is that benefiting you?

Printful allows me to have an array of items in my store without having thousands of dollars in inventory. Opening me up for product line growth.

"Best POD products and services on the market"
What do you like best about Printful?

I came to Printful because of the quality of the product, the standard, and the quality control. It allowed me to go further with my brand. If I get better products, I thought I would have happier clients ant that is what I get. My average review rate on Trustpilot is above 4.3 / 5 and from what I know is pretty tricky to reach better results with Print on Demand. So I moved to Printful after running a couple of tests with samples. Tests, where Printful appeared to be the best fit for me. Quality, user experience, but also application support were above my expectations. After one year of selling with them, I became Executive! From this point, the service becomes five stars : - Strategy support - Dedicated team member for any after-sale support Printful is the best Print on demand company on the market, the one that will allow you to build a better brand that will stand for years.

What do you dislike about Printful?

I don't think that there is so much I dislike regarding Printful. The company doesn't ship anymore to some European Oversea regions, which is sometimes irritating.

What problems is Printful solving and how is that benefiting you?

Printful allows you to build a standard. Anywhere, anytime, your T-shirt will be printed identically, with the same quality. Without quality control and standard, it's just impossible to build a brand.

"Printful offer the best value and customer service for print on demand"
What do you like best about Printful?

We've used Printful for about 4 months now and they have been fantastic. The 2 things I love are the value they offer and the customer service. We sell posters of my grandmother's photographic artwork (Eve Arnold). The paper quality is as good as many photographers use for high-quality photographic prints but at a fraction of the cost of anywhere else I've found. This means we are able to offer affordable and high-quality posters that really show the photos at their best. In terms of customer service, Printful always reply quickly, are very knowledgeable and helpful and solve any issues fast. The customer back end portal is also very easy to use. You can get started selling products quickly and easily and managing things once you're up and running is simple too.

What do you dislike about Printful?

There are very few downsides to Printful that I've found. The only one I can think of is that they don't have a fulfillment centre yet in the UK for sending out products so our UK customers receive their orders from Spain. However, this has not proven to be a problem. Our orders are small enough, so our customers don't have to worry about customs duties and the delivery time is still very good - usually about 10 days. We have had no complaints about this, only satisfied customers who love the quality of the posters.

What problems is Printful solving and how is that benefiting you?

The biggest problem that Printful solves is how to give Eve's worldwide audience access to high-quality posters of Eve's images. Printful have centers around the world and we can therefore easily offer posters to people no matter where they are in the world. They take care of all the printing and shipping, and because all the products are print on demand, you don't need to invest a lot upfront.

"The ideal Production Partner"
What do you like best about Printful?

Printful has been our fulfillment partner for a number of our brands since 2017 and they have played an important role in us being able to scale our business. POD is not new and Printful is not the only player in this industry - however, they are one of the few Print on Demand companies with the most consistency, transparency, around the clock customer service, and wide selection of products. They also do have a number of warehouse locations around the world (and new ones constantly added) which greatly helps with turnaround times and end-user experience as shipping a product closer to one's location internationally significantly improves transit times. I look forward to more years of partnership with Printful.

What do you dislike about Printful?

There is nothing really I dislike about Printful - there are fulfillment issues that come up (especially in the last year due to the pandemic) but Printful's transparency helps with us being able to maneuver in any market condition. When order issues come up, Printful quickly resolves them and reships the correct products.

What problems is Printful solving and how is that benefiting you?

Printful resolves the issue of us having to print our own products as well as warehouse them - they completely take care of this aspect of the operation so that we can focus on the other parts of the business.

"My experience using Printful for 3 years"
What do you like best about Printful?

First of all, quality of the products and printing is really great, this is the most important thing when you are selling something and sometimes people assume every company is gonna be like that, but... you'd be surprised to see that this is not the case for most of them, so I have to give Printful a 10/10 in this compared to the POD industry. Another thing that I like is that they are always working to add new products and that’s something I truly appreciate, a business listening to their customers is a business that is going in the right direction. The customer service is also great, they had help me with any problem, issue or question that I've had and I can guarantee you I'm someone who is always looking for the best results. Another amazing thing about them is that you can be based in the most remote place and still you are gonna be able to sell your products anywhere in the world, from the US to Europe, Australia, Asia, etc without having a huge increase in the cost, I'm already used to it but having a global partner like this is something you are looking for in any business. There is no possible comparison between Printful and other POD companies at this moment if you are looking to start a serious business.

What do you dislike about Printful?

I don’t really dislike a lot of things about them, but I will try to review the main topics that can be a problem for other people. When you go with a POD company there is a thing you have to know: pricing is gonna be higher than buying in bulk, yes, but that’s part of it, you are sacrificing some margin for not having to risk your money on something that you don’t know if it’s gonna work. In that price is also included everything that you would have to pay for if you choose to do it on your own. I've also seen some people complaining about shipping times, you have to understand that we are on a pandemic, almost every business except Amazon is having delays and most of you customers will understand if you inform them. Before Covid-19 shipping times for national deliveries were less than a week and a week or so for international deliveries.

What problems is Printful solving and how is that benefiting you?

As I told before, you can ship worldwide without having to pay a huge amount for it. They have fulfillment centers all around the globe, so that solves any logistic problem. I’m also able to make a new design and upload it immediately to my store without having to wait weeks until it’s produced and if something doesn’t work I'm not expending hundreds before testing it.
