Luba S.

Solid option for print on demand clothing and merch

2021-08-12

However they are definitely more expensive than several other comparable companies and don't have a order rerouting option that other co's do.

Pros

Catalog is well laid out.

Cons

Integration with woo commerce could be a little more streamlined.

Printful for shop merchandise

2021-07-23

In the past my experiences were pretty good, although the shipping times have always been pretty slow. However, during Covid, printful was not well managed - shipping and customer service were horrible and have me considering going elsewhere

Pros

I like that it integrates with my website and gives me the ability to save my stock for in store purchases.

Cons

Not very mobile friendly; I find myself having to use my laptop when I need to make changes or want to add new stock which can be inconvenient at times.

Custom, on-demand printing for Shopify store

2020-09-14

Anyone can us it to "stock" a variety of items in a Shopify store without holding any inventory.

Pros

Loved that it was easy to use and free and allowed my partner and I to try out ideas without printing and holding inventory.

Cons

I think they could do better in guiding you towards better decisions for example we did some t-shirts and in our initial set we placed the cheast graphic too low -- not blaming them as WE placed it but is seems that offering suggested placement for common areas would be a help.

Printful Product Review

2021-07-31

The quality control also started to fizzle...Honestly., in the long run, I'm glad I stopped working with Printful and just started printing with a local screen printer.

Pros

What I like most about Printful is the ease of launching an apparel brand within minutes.

Cons

There are a few things I do not like about Printful. They are a little pricy...I feel their sublimation printing should be a bit cheaper. Another thing is they did have long turnaround times. As the apparel industry grows, more clients begin to use Printful. The demand for apparel printing is greater than the fast working times Printful can provide. Also, it is a pain to set up tax (Nexus) with Printful, if you sell worldwide...

Their user interface can be a bit confusing.

From a beginner to a professional Ecommerce owner in few weeks (happy)

2021-09-03

Pros

Such amazing, your Ecommerce will look professional in few hours and you'll be ready to make money online.

Cons

I personally think they should allow us to send our own t-shirts with preferred fabric for printings when necessary.

An amazing print-on-demand service with great accessibility from other platforms

2021-05-20

It may not be the best priced for creators, though it is close % wise to the other options out there and I feel it has better integration options than many of its competitors.

Pros

Second, is how amazingly easy it is to integrate with other software such as WooCommerce/WordPress when trying to connect your online store to your own platform.

Cons

When items go out of stock it isn't always straightforward or easy to replace them with other items that are available.

Great Software and POD Products, Terrible Order Management Policies

2021-06-15

Printful delivers a good product but refuses to think about their customers' end customers and use common sense. This makes them unsuitable for use with Amazon stores, and undesirable for use if your customers care about getting their products on time.

Pros

The Amazon integration is nice to have, but does have some issues.

Cons

For example (and I've seen this dozens of times), if a particular shirt is out of stock in the US and won't be back in stock for three days, the smart thing would be to wait to fulfill the order when that shirt comes back in stock.

My favorite design company!

2021-02-02

I love that I can design and as someone wants to buy the product, Printful will print it on demand and even ship the item for me.

Pros

That's where Printful comes in! I can design products and Printful will print them on demand.

Cons

I would love it if Printful came out with more products and types of designs. Some of the products are very plain.

Small Business Owner

2021-03-28

And I believe they are the leading company in this market, especially because of their easy-to-use online platform.

Pros

Printful has seamless integration with both Etsy and Shopify.

Cons

I noticed a huge demand for a certain phone case model that Printiful does not offer. So I had to switch my entire phone case collection to a rival POD company that offers that.

Less than perfect

2021-05-30

Overall experience is ok. I feel like their products are too expensive which leaves yoou less profit.

Pros

POD software, I like that you can upload your own images or designs as any print on demand software you are able to do. One thing I do really like is they are an eco friendly and green company.

Cons

Lets take a t- shirt design for example.

I reccomend Printful as a great starting point for your fashion impare

2021-07-29

I use Printful for 2 years. I started with just ebay, and now I have ebay, Etsy, Wordpress and Shopify shops. All this with the same designs.

Pros

The are a lot of integrations with most popular e-commerce platforms which saves you time for uploading products and managing quantities.

Cons

There are a great products but not all of them have most popular colors - black and white.

One of the Best Options for On-Demand Printing!

2021-06-25

My overall experience with Printful has been great! I have been able to create so many customized merchandise pieces and have them available for sell at reasonable prices. One of the best services for on-demand printing hands down!

Pros

Also, if you have Shopify, you can easily integrate your products into your Shopify store!!!

Cons

I do wish there were a lot more options added, however what they currently have is still great to work with/start out with.
