Outsource your printing

Printing your awesome designs on different stuff is one less thing you have to think about. Your orders will be automatically sent from Shopify to us at Printful, to print and send out the order. Since everything is printed on-demand, you don't have to worry about keeping inventory, or guessing at what sells best - we've got you covered.

By letting us take care of the production, you can spend your time on what's important to you.

How does Printful work?

When an order is made on Shopify that contains a Printful product it is automatically sent directly to us, where we print and send your order to your customer.

Printful also automatically updates tracking information for that item within Shopify.

Your profit depends on you

Your profit depends on what you set the end-price at. The higher the price, the bigger the profit margin for you. But we ask for the bare minimum to be able to cover the t-shirt and printing expenses, which we buy direct from the supplier to give you the best prices. You can see our pricing page for suggested price points, to make sure that you get a great profit.

Quality you can count on

Our apparel is created with the latest in garment printing technology using Brother DTG printers and our inks are water based and eco-friendly. This makes the feel much softer than traditional screen printed shirts, but just as durable.

Posters and canvases are printed on Epson Stylus Pro 7900 using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Posters are printed on 10.3 mil thick Epson Enhanced Matte Paper. See more on quality.

We took care of the little things

  1. Sample the goods and see what your customer's getting. You can order samples of your designs for 20% off & FREE SHIPPING, found in the Printful “Submit Orders” dashboard

Always growing

Since we launched the app in Nov '13 our Shopify users has sold $2,953,624.46 worth of print products.

Not too easy to setup but once it's rolling it's rolling.

This may be a great app and service but it is not easy to get started and to get Smartify and Printful working together. The video says it is easy, but it has not worked for me and i have been trying it for hours.

Great app....We've been using Printful for the past two months and love everything about it. Customer service is great and the back end is simple enough for anyone to use. Thanks for the quality products and seamless integration.

Gamechanger! We used to manually print and fulfill orders ourselves, Shopify+Printful completely automates the process. They're a wonderful team working on an incredibly useful and high-quality service. I can't speak more highly of them!

The pricing of the shirts are a tad bit high and the shipping can take awhile. What's great about this service though is that you don't need to order shirts in bulk.

Great concept, but pricing is extremely high and fulfillment is way too slow (if at all) to be a real player beyond a side show for brands. I would caution anyone to use this as a main source as a business. If you are an existing brand and want to make company shirts (for no profit) or something similar, this may work. Otherwise, just a good concept at the moment with no plans on reducing pricing with increased growth and volume (from their mouth). No Economies of Scale?

Easy to install and setup. This app was just what we were looking for. Thank you.

I gave this app two months...

THE GOOD: The products themselves are indeed well built and customer service was very good.

THE BAD: The two hurdles that made this product unfit for my store are the pricing and the configuration. The pricing is incredibly high and put me in a position of either charging such a high price sales suffered greatly or sell product nearly at cost. The configuration is tricky even with a vanilla environment, and positively maddening when using other apps that access product variants like customer pricing. At one point I had nearly 60 skus for one shirt when all variants and custom pricing discount variants were factored in. Arranging the relationship between synched and un-synced items made my head spin and with each and every detail being so important, it was frustrating to work so hard to get it right and still find errors due to the complexity of the process.

THE VERDICT: If this print on demand concept were ever made intuitive to install and profitable it would be a Godsend. As it is, it is perhaps only suited for clientele that feel nearly $30 is a fair price for an Anvil shirt. The app is not bad per se, but think carefully if you think it is easy to use or an easy source of revenue.

What a fantastic company.

For about a month I have been using Printful for T-Shirt printing and fulfillment, replacing another print on demand company that I had grown very dissatisfied with. I could not have made a better choice.

Among the reasons to go with Printful:
-They turn out a good product that I am proud to sell.
-They have a good selection of products at very competitive prices.
-They have impeccable customer support. I have always had my questions answered promptly, and when I had questions that could not be immediately answered, the checked into it and got back to me quickly.
-Packaging and shipping uses labels with my logo.
- I have always been promptly notified or alerted on any matters that might effect my inventory.
-Very easy to integrate and sync with Shopify.

I could go on and on.

I had to take a minute and write about my experience with the crew at Printful. They are awesome! I've seen a few look alike companies while doing my research but none have the API, the competitive pricing and the customer service. Those factors are what give me the confidence to offer shirts for my customers, where before last month I wouldn't have thought this to be possible on my budget.

I received phone communication and email support so I'm sure they are real people and are there to help.

It took me a few minutes to setup my images in photoshop but I was able to figure it out pretty fast and get the images uploaded.

This is the cool part, I received a couple of orders on my website within the first 24 hours of posting up my "mock up images." I created the mock up images using my t-shirt graphics and the Free mock up shirt images that I downloaded at printful.

I will be adding many designs to my store, it's so nice to receive an order and not have to do anything at all.... The Dang API even fulfilled my order through shopify when the t-shirt was marked for delivery. I couldn't believe it, I thought for sure I'd at least have to manually enter the tracking #'s.

Oh yeah, and they offered a Made in the USA Organic T-shirt. That was a must.

All in all 10/10
