About Lulu xPress

Entrepreneurs and business owners agree that having control over your product is critical to successfully growing your business. The Lulu xPress App connects our global print and fulfillment network to your Shopify storefront for a more efficient way to sell your books. Now every time an order is placed for your books, we’ll print and ship the order, and provide you and your customer tracking to ensure everyone is happy. It’s that simple!

Why Lulu?

  • Lulu pioneered on-demand book printing. After printing over 5.3 billion (yes, billion with a B) pages across our global network, we perfected the art of printing high quality, on-demand books, the same as any you’d see on the shelves at your local bookstore or big box
  • Lulu offers a variety of binding, size, color and cover options, including common and many uncommon book designs, as well as offering customizable products
  • Print prices low enough that you can sell your book for the same or less than a bookstore list price and still realize a substantial profit
  • No set-up charges or handling fees
  • Global dropshipping direct to your buyer with trackable shipping methods
  • As a certified B corporation, we source materials in sustainable and environmentally conscious ways

How does it work?

The Lulu xPress App integrates our printing and fulfillment network with your Shopify store. When an order for a book is placed in your store, it automatically sends a request to our network. We print and ship the order directly to your customer. Integration and setup is easy.

Find the format you need from our range of over 3,000 layouts, bindings, and print combinations. Create everything from magazines, to catalogs, to textbooks, and even large hardcover coffee table books.

This app has been really helpful to us! We've been able to hook up our printed items from Lulu (we love their printing quality!) to our shopify buttons and use them on our website for a streamlined order and fulfillment process. We couldn't do business without this!

This app doesn't work. I installed it then tried to create a book. I keep getting the following message:
