There’s a lot to consider when you decide to start an online store. And a lot of times, the initial capital investment is a big concern. What if you have an idea, a few really awesome designs, but you’re not interested in spending your life’s savings on starting your business? Many of our clients are in the exact same boat when they come to us. And each time, we happily recommend our favorite on-demand drop-shipment company: Printful.

How does printful work?
Easy! So, you have an online store, right? Well, you add your custom designed Printful product to your site. Your customer’s shopping experience happens right there on your site. They buy the product they dig the most, pay through your payment processor, and they receive an order notification all from your business.
Now, on the backend is where the magic happens. When your customer places the order and pays, that order automatically gets placed through Printful and they get to work fulfilling that order. You’re billed for the cost of the product, and they handle all the printing, fulfillment, packaging, and shipping for you.
Your customer will receive their shipment in your specific branded packaging!
- Or your own custom website/app
