  2. Create an account at Printful or sign in with your existing account

  3. Upload print files and sync your existing products that you would like to fulfill through us

Feel free to contact us at support@printful.com for more help on getting started.

From A to Z, we'll take care of you

We're more than a dropshipper. We're directly involved in every step of our fulfillment process and go the extra mile to help you get your store up and running. With Printful, you get:


  1. Discounted samples: Order samples of your products for 20% off and free shipping worldwide! See exactly what your customers are getting.

  2. White label service: We don't include any Printful branding when we ship your orders. You're the star of the show, and we make sure your brand is front and centre with our branding tools, like a free sticker of your logo on every order.

  3. Quality products: We're one of the only dropshippers that prints everything in-house. We have full control of the printing process and quality check.

  4. Design services: Whether you need a bit of inspiration, a complete overhaul, or a couple of tweaks to perfect your print files, our in-house designers can get your designs looking exactly the way you want.

  5. Ecommerce Photography: After we've printed your products, we can take professional-grade photographs and send them to you, so you can upload them straight to your store.

  6. Free mockups: Create mockups of your products with our mockup generator, or use our existing mockup photos. We have the highest quality, most photorealistic mockups, and we're the only dropshipper with a mockup generator for hats.

You decide your profit

We charge you the bare minimum to cover the cost of production and the product, which we buy directly from our suppliers at wholesale prices. Then you set your end price, and what's left is your profit. Your end price will depend on what you and your customers think is fair, but we recommend a minimum profit margin of 30%.

Say you're selling an LA Apparel 20001 fine jersey short sleeve t-shirt. Your price is $23.00. Our price is $13.95. Subtract our price from yours and you get a profit of $9.05.

Made and printed in the USA

Each and every order is printed with love and care at our locations in Los Angeles and Charlotte. Our fulfillment team personally oversees production and ensures the highest quality results. That makes us one of the only print-on-demand service that doesn't outsource printing and fully controls production.

We have invested over $4.7 million in printing equipment and tech. All of our apparel is printed either on Brother or Kornit DTG printers, which is industry-leading equipment. See more on quality.

Stress-free shipping

We cover the cost for all carrier-related mistakes. The carrier lost or damaged your shipment? It's on us.

More shipping bonuses:


  • Every domestic order comes with tracking.

  • When we mail an item, we automatically trigger the Shopify notification with the tracking code, which is sent to your customer.

  • All Shopify Advanced plan users can easily override Shopify's shipping settings and activate Printful's live rates instead – just check a box under your store's settings.

  • Live shipping rates give you cheaper rates with USPS First Class for standard shipping and with FedEx Express for expedited shipping. And international rates that are two to three times cheaper than standard prices.

Mr.TotallyNotABot

I've been using them for about six months. Yes, they're expensive, but their quality is usually very good. On the good side, most of my posters and apparel ship out lightning fast: within 2-3 days, then arrive 3-4 days later. A week from order to arrival. Can't beat that. Also, the print quality on posters and t shirts was amazing.

But on the negative side:

While the print quality on the canvases was good, the corners of the canvases protruded a lot, and wasn't something that I could sell to a customer. On top of that, the totes and canvases took almost two weeks before they were finally shipped. CS explained that this was a fault with one of their bags (though this was never shared to me during the experience. Only weeks later).

On top of that, the template for their all over totes is wrong. All of my artwork is within the safe area, and yet when a mockup is produced, the artwork is cut off. So, I've since gone with another POD company for all over totes and canvases.

Despite their flaws with the all over totes and canvases, they are a very reputable company. I strongly recommend them for posters, apparel and canvas totes. Would definitely stay away from their canvas prints and all over totes. You can find better elsewhere with other companies.

Does all of the "table stakes" stuff well -- good visibility to their process and their tools work well enough. However, the more you use it, the more frustrating it becomes. Their customer support feels like it purposely tries to be unavailable. Their phone is never picked up, and messages answered days later. Email support is spotty, and chat is often unavailable (but usually the easiest way to reach someone, "easy" being a relative term with Printful). Their service is buggy, for instance I had a 60 t-shirt bulk order where the unit cost varied by $3.25 PER SHIRT (!!!) depending on how I set up the order, and I still can't get customer support to help me. Long story short, the more you use it, the more you realize they are not set up to make you (the seller) successful -- which is a big no-no when you're the highest priced/premium service in the marketplace.

getting better and better everyday.
now with the caps and beanies automatic mockup is just fantastic.

just a few points against Printful is the price for the shirts and no optiions for jackets , polos and button-down shirts

posted

I recommend this to everyone interested in going into shirts, its the least expensive way to start with the least amount of risk.

Outstanding service all the way around.

This is what you can expect:

ANTONIO: Shopify CS
STEPHEN: Shopify and Printful Customer

Antonio L: Hi Stephen, What's up? :)
STEPHEN: Hi Nick, I’ve just refunded my first refund. Order 1012. When I did that, does Printful also get notified and is the order then canceled?
STEPHEN: It was a “medium suspicious” order
Antonio L: Depending on the printful sync setup, I'll check that now, hold on :)
STEPHEN: thx
Antonio L: The order is pending, I'm now checking if there;s a way to cancel the order
Antonio L: Upon checking, printful doesn't have a cancellation feature, I suggest you can reach out to the customer and notify them that it looks like the credit card has some issues so maybe they can reinstate it.
Antonio L: You can learn more about that here
STEPHEN: Wait, from the link yuo just sent over it says “You can before the status of the order is changed to, “being fulfilled.” It wasn’t being fulfilled. It was still pending. And what do you mean Printful doesn’t have a cancelation feature? They’re unavailable now. And I have reached out to the customer—following Shopify’s guidlelines for security risks which is why I’m talking to you now.
Antonio L: It seems that the order is actually already "being fulfilled"
STEPHEN: But yu said, and I saw: “The order is pending, I'm now checking if there;s a way to cancel the order”
Antonio L: Yeah sorry that was my bad, what I meant by pending was that, the "being fulfilled" status
STEPHEN: They have NEVER moved this fast.The order came through aat 3:49 on Saturday. I immediately contacted Shopify out of concern to WHY this sale had been marked “medium risk of fraud”. As a partner of yours, and after I—your customer—followed your directions—I would think that this would negate anything having to do with Printful. They are your partner.
Antonio L: Alright let me look into that
STEPHEN: You can check with Sydnee C—she’s the one who told me how to do all of this.
Antonio L: Thanks for that info, I'll take a look at your conversation with Syndee C.
Antonio L: Still checking your account to see what best resolution I have for you, thanks for staying connected. I’ll be back in a bit
Antonio L: I do apologize on behalf of my colleague, I've checked the previous chat with Syndee and it seems that she mentioned this issue was going to get escalated, so I'll try to reach out to Sydnee and see what the status is for this refund
STEPHEN: I believe, the issue being escalated was an error msg from connecting my PayPal. I need to know that when I refund an order suspicious of fraud “says Shopify”, that Shopify has my back both with me AND partners. This is INSANE.
Antonio L: Alright I understand, I'm still checking what I can do regarding this.
Antonio L: I suggest that you can reach out to the customer for them to speak with their bank since the bank has the ability to refund this for them since on our end and on Printful's end this is already being fulfilled.
Antonio L: I do understand that this may be a bit of a hassle but this just happens for the security of your account
STEPHEN: Shopify told me this transaction was at risk of fraud. I followed Shopify’s instructions https://help.shopify.com/manual/payments/shopify-payments/fraud-prevention#search-email . All of them. The person who placed the order—from Kuwait—never answered their phone or email—they DO NOT EXIST! I did nothing wrong, in fact I did everything I was told to do. I suggest that SHOPIFY work this and ANY of these types of situations out with Printful. Printful has been a huge pain in the ass since the beginning…doing mediocre work and is completely inflexible with customer service. I had 3 out 10 orders returned of my 1st 10 sales…they blamed it on my files. I sent the SAME files to another printer and they cam eback BEAUTIFUL on THE SAME material. I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT accept this and would like to speak with your superior on the phone.
