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.

  1. Click the “Get App” button

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

  3. Upload any print files to Printful for products that you would like to fulfill through Printful

  4. Answer a few questions about what you're selling (product type, size)

  5. Grab a margarita and relax!

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

  2. Use our mockup images. Access images of our products you can use in your Shopify Store here or use our Mockup Generator.

  3. Use our description texts we've pre-written descriptions you can use in your store, so that you don't have to. See product descriptions (click on the product).

All US orders have tracking

When we send an item, we automatically trigger the Shopify shipping notification with the tracking code, which is sent to your end customer so they know where their package is.

Shopify "Unlimited" plan users can also use the feature to override Shopify shipping settings so your customers will have a choice of USPS and FedEx expedient shipping options.

Printful - We print T-shirts, Posters and Other Print Products reviews (31)


Thought it was cool until i ordered myself a sample, needless to say its been 3 weeks, no sample, tracking number hasn't been updated at all, no responses to my emails, I can't trust you guys with my customers, i'm reversing the transaction just incase you think you can outsmart me. I wouldn't waste my time folks, nothing good here.


Ordered 2 samples, 1 sample faded after 1 wash along with the print not being straight on the shirt, the other sample lettering is twice as big as the other. Tried calling, no one answers, the live chat only seems to be open when they feel like it. Still waiting on a email back. I believe the people that have written great reviews about this app may have never looked at their products being sold. Paying $47.00 for 2 samples is also upsetting. I was hoping to have my shop up and running by now but since I have to wait on a reply back from Printful, I will probably seek a more reliable avenue. I want my customers to have quality printing and if there are any issues and want them to be resolved promptly and I don't see this happening with Printful.


This app is incredible! They make it SO easy to sell swag on your store. I wish I had this a long time ago. And they keep updating it and sending me emails with great ideas. GET THIS APP!


Amazing Support! Great Integration & top API. I highly recommend it.


From our own experience, we can say that Printful is a great complement for our business. Not only because of their quality printing and fulfillment services, but also for their incredibly supportive and responsive customer service. In a time where the way you do business online is evolving rapidly and constantly improving you need to make sure that your business is engaged with the right suppliers/partners. The API integration with this app and our website was easy, no special tech needed. It has improved the way our store runs and it gives us the time we need to focus on product developing, customers and marketing.


Great customer service , the merchandise is amazing , haven't had any complaints . I get all my products from them and we love it ..branding our shirts with tags is very important and were glad we have a chance to add the tags ..


Great idea, bad implementation. The good reviews on here are from people who have never seen the finished product or are ignorant to printing.

50/50 on customer service and the print quality is horrible. For the price you would hope for high quality. Unfortunately to save a couple bucks their printer is set to use minimal ink and it shows on the final product.

If you don't care about quality and are not looking for much profit this is a great resource for you. If you want quality, strike a deal with a local screen printer, the smaller shops are always willing to bargain and you will pay a 1/5 of what these guys charge. That adds up quick, after selling 5 shirts through Printful and turning a meager 20 to 30% profit you could have bought locally and made an 80% profit margin and paid 1/2 for shipping.

Shipping is $5 for a shirt! I pay $2.50 myself and they have bulk discounts!!
The little profit you get is still getting whittled down.

I hope someone else does this right, I could really use the service!


I've been using printful for the past 3 months with my webstore and they are absolutely amazing. The customer service is top notch, The quality of the product is perfect. The price for products may be a little high however if you want the best quality your going to have to pay for it. Printful delivers on every angle of a perfect business companion.


Printful is a great company to work with
They currently do most of my fulfilment for me and their service is always on point. They're helpful when you reach them, their chat is a great option when you're in a pinch, and I've found that any time I'm in a tough spot with a customer they've stepped up to be helpful and done the right thing to make what could have been a bad customer experience a good one. They seem to understand that their support of me is what makes my support possible for my customers and that's the biggest thing for a company like them. Hoping they continue to expand their product offerings! Awesome to work with would fully recommend to anyone. - chris


Seamless, extremely easy to use. High shipping prices, but that's a small price to pay for not having to carry inventory when starting your business.
