  • No Upfront Costs — print on demand means zero startup costs. Spend that money growing your business instead.
  • No Manual Work — we are completely integrated with Shopify. Everything is taken care of automatically, all you have to do is make the sale.

Short Version



  • Over 170,000 feet of print on demand production facilities across the US (we can handle whatever you throw at us).

  • Highest level of quality and performance (over 23 products are created every second with our app).

We bring your ideas to life

Print on demand done right. Very simply, teelaunch was created for the Shopify owner who has a store and wants to stick to being creative and not waste time & money fumbling through the printing and shipping process. This teelaunch app allows you to upload your custom designs and we’ll turn them into real products and ship them to your customers on your behalf.

For you, it means no upfront costs, no inventory and no complicated shipping logistics. We’ll do that heavy lifting so you can make money faster and focus on what is most important for your business.

The teelaunch app


  • Automatically print, fulfill and ship orders.

  • We offer over 50 different products including Apparel, phone cases, mugs, posters, tote bags, and more.

  • White label shipping, your name is on the shipping label

Every product that you create in the teelaunch app whether it’s a custom phone case, a work softball team shirt or a one-of-a-kind t-shirt for your nephew’s birthday will be listed in YOUR Shopify store. You design it, list it and sell it and then we take over automatically and print it and ship it with your name on the shipping. So easy, right?

All printing is done on-demand so you don't need to track inventory or worry about sizing -- the app does it all for you!

Automatic fulfillment and shipping

When a customer orders from your store, teelaunch automatically creates a fulfillment order within the teelaunch system. These orders are tracked and updated within your Shopify store immediately. Tracking numbers are sent right to your Orders dashboard and the shipping status is updated. Shopify’s automated system then delivers shipping updates directly to your customers.

It’s all automated and it’s all within the Shopify family, so the technology places nice together and keeps you and your customers up to date every step of the way.

Paypal support

We recognize that paying for teelaunch orders using a credit card is not possible for everyone. Because we wanted to help every seller bring their idea to life we've just launched Paypal support. You can now pay for your teelaunch orders directly from your Paypal balance or a connected bank account.

prices are higher than what their description says, only accepts PNG files larger than 2400px for a t-shirt which is just a ridiculous size compared to most photos being half of that. This app isn't for me, I will find another one like it.. hopefully better.

Three orders lost in our first month using Teelaunch and when they resend the order, the customer does not receive a new tracking number.

Mug printing is very bad. No quality control, they send defective printing mugs to my customer without any checking. Very bad printing quality. There is a logo with Made in China on the bottom of the mugs. Very disappointed.

When things are running smoothly, all is well. For this reason, and because of the good pricing, I stuck it out for quite a while. But when you have an issue you are in for a ride. Expect to wait days before support tickets get any attention, and when they do, don't expect the communication to be clear or the problem to be addressed. They seem to be in over their heads most of the time, and confused. Communication is an essential when I need to keep my customers happy and informed about their orders. Mistakes are fine, as long as communication is there. With these guys, it isn't there and never has been. When you run into trouble, you'll feel like they are either ignoring you or they just plain don't know what's going on.

Pros -
Easy interface, the app itself is easy to use and design products.
The app works well with Shopify.
Pricing is competitive.

Cons -
I have contacted customer service several times with various response times, everywhere from never responding to 2 days. Slow either way. Once I was in correspondence with someone from customer service replied to my response by the next business day.

Information?!? There is a lack of information and organization. I want to know what brands and variants are available for which products and how much shipping is for each item. There is no reference page for this information.
For example I ordered a sample of the District Long Sleeve Tee and got a Port and Company instead. The response from Customer services was that purple is only offered in Port and Company and not District. Except that the product says it will be a District shirt. I need to know what I am getting not be surprised.

It seems that the products listed for sale in the App are not exactly what you will be getting.

They add new products to the app without much product description. Once again lack of information. A product description or how much to ship.

The provided sizing guide leaves a lot to be desired.

Based on some emails from the owner, it seems they are working hard on updates and making the app better. It has lots of potential as the design of the app is great.

Once the get a little more organized I might try them again.

Positives:
1) Really really good app! Fantastic process of setup, although you can't easily set every combination.

2) Product came quickly

3) They list the value of multiple tshirts as $10 (total) so that customs doesn't bother charging Canadian customers for importing - nice. Potentially illegal though.

Negatives:
1) Not great email customer service. I think they're still ramping this team up. That said, when I asked for a phone call with a manager, it got a response within a couple of hours. Not a deal breaker.

2) They basically have two tshirt types that are exactly the same but different labels on them. They were really helpful in explaining that I didn't need to pay more for the more expensive tshirt. But I ended up deciding to do so for the perceived value of the product I'd be shipping. Only thing was, they didn't HAVE the expensive one in stock, so rather than contact me and ask what I wanted, they just opted to send MY product out to MY customer on the cheaper shirt.... and charged me the extra buck for the more expensive tshirt. I didn't like them making decisions about my brand that way. To their credit, they immedaitely refunded me 100% when I complained and they said it would never happen again. Not a deal breaker.

3) Their system is really picky about the size of the image. I can understand why it shouldn't be too small, but how can it be too large? Not a deal breaker.

4) Their printing process leaves a smell on the shirts that resembles vinegar. It dissipates after a wash or two, but it's pretty strong coming out of the package. When we ordered a test run of a half-dozen shirts the team in the office complained until we sealed them back up. Not a deal breaker.

4) Their printing process involves making subtle changes to the image to optimize how it looks on a tshirt. In my case, it printed a white background behind the colour ink to make it pop. That might work for other images, but our product is faux-vintage. There are "holes" in the images to represent where the shirt is worn.
Without the holes, the product doesn't look right. Ultimately it was this product incompatibility that caused us to switch to Printful. If it hadn't been the case, I probably would have continued to work with them... and I might work with them on other products. I will update this review as I try that.

Disappointing. After establishing our online store, we chose Teelaunch for fulfillment. We were impressed with the App's ease of use, and although we would have preferred additional product options, it wasn't a deal breaker.

The first issue came when we ordered a test run. Teelaunch advertises "The majority of orders ship within 1-2 days and since we're centrally located and use USPS your US based customers receive their orders in less than 3 days." Our order shipped after 7 days and we received it 10 days after ordering. I contacted customer support and their response was: "Order are printed and shipped 7 days a week ... Many factors play in the time the shirt is printed and shipped. We do apologize about this delay."

The second issue arose when we opened the package and inspected the shirts. The design was a very basic, single color, underlined text with the shirt as the background. The image provided was per their pixel recommendation and format (2400-3600, PNG). The print color was silver but what arrived was a grayish purple. The text and underline seemed smudged, not crisp and clear.

The third issue was when I contacted customer support on September 8. Initially, the company was very apologetic and seemed as though they wanted to correct the problems. We resent images of both the PNG uploaded for print as well as the delivered product. To date, September 26, we have not received a response despite contacting the company several times simply asking for an update.

We gave Teelaunch 2/5 stars because their App is streamlined, and the order did process. However, the delays, quality, and customer support were something that needed to be addressed and made known to others looking at Teelaunch. Hopefully this helps you make an informed decision.
