About Printful ❤️

When it comes to print-on-demand, Printify stands out as one of the leading companies.

They are an on-demand printing and fulfillment company that helps people turn their ideas into brands and products. Whether you wish to create your own online brand or gift someone a personalized t-shirt, they can help you get it done.

Whenever someone—you or your customer—makes a purchase, they will automatically receive the order, fulfill it, and ship it.

Who are they? 

Printful started a long time ago when the owners created an online store selling motivational posters for entrepreneurs. Soon, they started growing and needed someone to help with printing and fulfillment, but found out that no one could match their quality standards, so they decided to launch their own business. That's how Printful was born.

Now they are one of the biggest print-on-demand companies, with over 330 products available to customize, more than 1M items fulfilled each month, and +83M items shipped since 2013. Amazing, right? 🤯
