I only gave 5 stars because 6 was not an option. If you are considering starting a legitimate clothing brand or just looking to make some extra money selling your designs, please do yourself a favor and go with Printful. I generally never write reviews as I am an extremely busy and type A++ personality. However, after watching dozens and dozens of comparison videos of Printful to POD providers, I chose two of the others first. Because I was lured into the comparison video trap where not all things were being considered. It is about VALUE, not PRICE. the only way to build a brand or sell your designs is through consistent quality. Consistent Quality comes at only a small higher price, but it will more than payoff in the form of satisfied customers, repeat business, good reviews, and flexibility. I chose two other before Printful and the difference is the other POD's cannot always ensure consistent quality simply due to the model they use. Other POD's simply outsource the work to the lowest bidder, or in some cases you can request the same provider and hope that it gets done, when it needs to get done, at the same quality as before. If a provider provides poor quality, yes those other POD companies will eventually drop them as a provider, but at that point it has already caused problems for your brand and designs. I learned this the hard and expensive way, and having too many negative reviews will get you delisted form some selling sites. This is where Printful is different. Rather than "offshore" or "offload" the jobs to other companies, Printful prints all of their own items at their own facility using their standardized QC process. This helps ensure consistent quality. Their reputation and business viability is greatly diminished if they do not provide quality products to the customer. So they have a business value proposition for ensuring consistent quality. Next big reason for choosing Printful, FLEXIBILITY. Most of the other POD suppliers do not have the option for Sleeve prints or Private label branding. This is HUGE if you are trying to build a clothing brand or streetwear brand. This allows your brand to look professional and official. The third reason to choose Printful is what I call "Small Touch Service", where they will allow you to send them branded packaging to ship your products. This includes mailers, inserts, etc, all of which reinforce the legitimacy of your brand. So if you want the CHEAPEST, and your brand is not that important to you, then try the others and learn as I did the difference between Initial Cost and Total Cost of ownership, including returns, refunds, being delisted for bad reviews, etc. I almost lost all of the time and money I invested in my brand and designs "CHASING CHEAP". You took time and effort to create the designs and the brand, don't let all that be lost . Brand failure is expensive and embarrassing. Do not make the mistake I made. The slightly higher rate you pay at Printful is to provide you the best chance at building a successful brand or design collection providing what you are really selling, your reputation. You deserve consistent quality designs. You deserve Printful. DaleH, CFO, MBA, A2B Logistics and CrossUp Brands.

I use Printful for branded merch on my site. My initial reason for engaging with Printful was because I needed some branded t-shirts for my own use when making social media content. The retail print on demand options were stupid expensive and Printful made a lot of sense because I was also able to add merch to my website.

Getting the plugin installed in Shopify is a snap. The setup on the Printful side was a little clunkier than I would have liked but once I understood how to make product templates on their site and then sync them back to my Shopify store it has been easy to add additional print on demand products.

I have not needed to interact with anyone at Printful as I found their online help to be great.

The quality of the final result is awesome and they ship very quickly which is great. All in all I am very happy with Printful and would recommend to others.

I have been using Printful since I opened my online store in 2019 and while I have tested out other POD companies (CustomCat, Gooten, etc) - Printful is by far the absolute best in every instance. Customer service is outstanding - always quick to respond or help, their resources are super helpful when knowing what information to provide my customers with so to cause as little error or confusion as possible. Though rare, if there is a quality or printing error - Printful has found a quick solution each time. Of course I would like to see some better options but that comes with time and growth! Since I have been using their services for almost 4 years now...it's been great to see them really listen to customers feedback and concerns, turn around and apply them while just improving even more! I never feel like I'm not aware of new policies/shipping delays or holiday prep because Printful always keeps me in the loop. I am a very big Printful fan and will continue to use their services -- if you're on the fence, go with Printful, you will not regret it. I truly do not think I would be able to run my business successfully if it wasn't for Printful and how helpful they have been from the very beginning.
