We offer a complete fulfilment service

But we don’t stop at order fulfilment. Inkthreadable offer services that’ll make your brand stand out.

  • Branded labels. DTG printed neck labels add a little extra personality to your products.

  • Huge product catalogue. We only supply the products we personally approve. Everything’s been print and wash tested so you know the quality will meet your expectations.
  • Custom delivery notes. Branded with your logo and personal message. Oh, and they’re included free as standard.

  • Plain cover packaging. Everything is shipped in unbranded packaging so your customers won’t know you’ve used a fulfilment service.

  • Worldwide shipping. UK based service with a global reach - sell to Detroit as easily as Devon.

  • Shipping options. From UK domestic to international courier, our shipping costs tell you what it’ll take to get a parcel to your customer.

  • Discounted samples. We’ll print and ship a sample order at a discount so you can see what your customer sees. And it’s a great opportunity to test our turnaround time!
  • Free mockups. Create a product with our free tool and it’ll automatically generate a mockup for that item, which is uploaded to Shopify when synced.
  • You have complete control. You chose which products you want fulfilled by Inkthreadable and which services you’d like to take advantage of. All costs are transparent; what you see listed is what you’ll pay so you can find the right product with the right finishing options at the right price for your store.

    HUGE product Catalogue


    We're always expanding and add new products to our catalogue quarterly. To date, we carry over 140 styles including:

    Delivery


    Our average shipping time is 2-3 working days and never longer than 5

    It just seems like common sense to us; customer satisfaction is driven by quality service, and the best service is quick and efficient. We get to work as soon as we receive an order, and we don’t rest until it’s shipped - then nimble couriers carry your order for the final leg.

    And speaking of customer satisfaction


    We want our customers to be happy with the service they receive too

    So we work hard. Very hard. The Inkthreadable customer service team is always available during office hours, whether that's by email, phone, or Live Chat. But the rest of the Inkthreadable team is working diligently too to make sure your orders represent your company’s high standards.

    Inkthreadable have been so helpful to me as a new Shopify spore owner. I had a lot of newbie questions! My orders have been shipped within a couple of days. Test order (mug) was good quality, very happy with the print. I was worried after reading negative reviews but I'm confident that they are the right fit for me. I've tried to contact other printers and they don't even respond to questions about their products. Looking forward to growing my business now.

    I used these guys for around a year. I really wanted to like them, as a UK based print on demand supplier.

    In fairness, the print quality on some T-shirts was pretty good. The app, payments etc.. was all very simple to use. The issue was always delivery speed - which was hopeless.

    They always promise that orders will be dispatched within 3-5 business days. Whilst I had a few that went in that time, the vast majority went way past that. in fact I had some orders waiting A MONTH before they were shipped.

    This is isn't acceptable, and damaged our business. Thankfully I'm now in the position where I can buy in stock in bulk, so no longer need to use Inkthreadable or a print on demand supplier.

    Would I recommend these guys, unfortunately, no, I wouldn't. Not until they speed up their production process significantly.

    Pros:
    - Good Product Selection
    - Easy Integration with Shopify
    - Quick order process
    - Quick Customer service response

    Cons:
    - Mock ups are dreadful (had to make our own) Terrible shapes and caps look printed not embroidered.
    - Print quality is average (depends on product)
    - SLOW DELIVERY - This was the main problem, we've ended up having to change suppliers because of this. Waited 10 days for some orders to be dispatched causing unhappy customers and disputes. No communication about delays until we chased for answers, which were responded to with an apology but no other information. Compensation offered of 15% discount for one week.
    - No sample discount, Printful offer 20% off unlimited samples to 3 addresses. Inkthreadable offer one use of a 10% discount.

    Really wanted to work with these guys, tried to persist but on a whole felt like we were put to the back of the queue and our business has been negatively affected because of this. What a shame.

    We have tested out several print on demand services for UK only delivery for our site www.smileywoo.co.uk and inkthreadable looked like the best option for product selection. After adding our designs the orders came in and delivery simply took too long. If this could be sped up it would be great. We only used basic designs and the print was ok. Purely due to delivery times we've had to change suppliers i'm affraid.

    It's a hit and miss using their print fulfillment service. Their customer service team are commendable and always get back on time but the whole fulfillment service is just a letdown and disappointing. Print quality is so-so compared to other DTG providers I tried which much better. Had a missing order that didn't arrived, the team agreed to arrange for order replacement and re-delivery but after 4 weeks, nothing came. Recommend for any new startups or brands to look elsewhere if you just starting up your small business or you may end up dealing with order issues with your customers.

    We've now tried literally every UK based dropshipping company in the UK now. In terms of quality, product variety, rebranding and speed, Inkthreadable were the best. However, their shear number of products and the lack of inventory stock updates within the app means it's a huge headache if your customers place orders, only then to be told the item isn't in stock to be printed. You then have to manually update the Shopify inventory stock to show what isn't available, which is a nightmare, and you could find that various sizes/colours will continue to go out of stock soon after. And waiting for a month for the stock to come back in is not viable and heavily restricts sales, so for this reason we had to swap to another provider with a small selection of products but 100% availability. As soon as stock levels are built into the app, we'll be back.

    My store onlychillvibes.com has been using Inkthreadable since its inception and it has done nearly everything (expanded below) perfectly. Here's a overview.

    Product selection : true it is currently the best in Europe, but there can always be
    more products and product options.

    Printing quality : we use Continental Clothing Earth Positive (50% cotton/ 50%
    tencel) for our apparel and both the hoodies and tees have
    come out better than expected.

    Digital mockups : Could use a lot of improvement!

    Production Time : One word that would describe it, would be patchy. Sometimes
    the delivery has been within 3 working days. Other more
    frequent times it can get up to 10 working days (within the UK).

    App : Not the most user-friendly but isn't that complicated.

    Payment : Works well.

    Customer service : Excellent and friendly staff, however, I have had some
    circumstances when they have not informed me of certain
    issues with orders.
    _________________

    Overall : Inkthreadable is a good service. Now, there are certain
    improvements and other add-ons I would love to see (e.g.
    branded packing inserts) that would increase the services
    value. 8/10.

    What a pain in the a**!!!

    Now, i got on to inkthreadible as they have the biggest selection of products and color variations available. However lets review some facts real fast:

    Product selection: best in Europe
    Mockups: mostly S**T! (bad digital models mostly, bad resolution)
    Printing quality: quite ok for cotton products, horrible on polyester (color distortion from Heat during print process
    App: pain in the a** - you can't even name the products for better overview and only create new, instead of edit.
    Production time: don't expect it to be 2 weeks - expect it to be 14 business days!
    Payment: sometimes it´s working, sometime not :P

    Bottom line: if you ONLY need simple shirts, go somewhere else. if you need more, better plan in some extra hours.

    System itself is at 4/5, Customer Service is fast and always available, although not always problem solving orientated 3/4. Product portfolio 4/5, process time 3/5, unfortunatly currently the software does not tell you if stock is available or not. So far 75% of my orders involved products out of stock and I had to get back to customers and find alternatives.
    The team is working on developing the IT to include out of stock information, but currently this really is a show-stealer. Whitout this component in the future, the fulfillment is not really saving time and work. So unfortunatly, at the moment only 2/5.

    EDIT: I just had to uninstall the App. Unfortunatly we had too many returns and quality issues. Labels were not printed as agreed, prints were not centered and either to much left or right, or to low, wrong sizes were sent, sometimes with packaging slip - sometimes without and and and. It is just not a reliable service (stock availability asweel... see above) and we can currently not use it and pass these problems on to our customers.

    The team is always helpfull and available, but overall deliverytime from the UK to Germany is far too long (sometimes 10-14 days) The system is developing fast and it is visible the team is trying, it is just not at a usable point yet. perhaps we will retry in a year or two, currently it is costing us money, time and unhappy customers.

    Absolutely amazing service from Inkthreadable. I've been using Inkthreadable for over a year and they've been consistently fantastic - even during busy times such as Christmas. Their customer service is second to none and there's always someone on hand to assist you. They always go above and beyond!

    Their products are all brilliant quality and there's an excellent range to to choose from.

    The app is really easy to use and to integrate with Shopify (even for someone like me... who had only just opened a Shopify store)

    I'd recommend Inkthreadable to anyone.
