Sell your own products with help from Printful, a
dropshipping service that handles the storage,
production, and shipping for you.
Printful is a dropshipping company that gives eCommerce merchants several ways to deal with the task of handling their inventory. You can build your selection of products with the variety of services they provide, all without worrying about minimum orders or monthly fees. Some of the benefits you can get from working with Printful are print-on-demand shipping; warehouse storage for your inventory; being about to print your designs on more than 160 different products; professional photography and editing; and leaving your own mark on the packaging with white-label dropshipping.
Printful’s primary service is T-shirts of all kinds.
Whether you want to sell men’s, women’s, unisex, or children’s, this dropshipper can splash your designs on any tee you like.
While there may be other dropshippers that offer print on demand t-shirts, Printful takes the lead by offering many different variations of products that allow you to pick your products by cost, preference, or demographics.
Printful offers multiple brands that you can print your designs on. Each brand will vary in cost and quality, so the shirt you choose to plant your design on will be the one that most aligns with your target cost or target quality. Outside of multiple brands, each brand also offers its own tier of quality, some made with 100% ultra cotton, while others give the ability to have a tear away label and athletic fit. There are dozens of different types of t-shirts to choose from. The good news is, you’re not limited to just picking one, you can always add multiple variations of the same style.
Not only can you pick your quality, but you can pick your style too. Outside of the basic t-shirt, some other examples in the t-shirt category include:
And If you’d like, there are baseball shirts also available.
You can print your design on any of the aforementioned shirt styles with a pretty simple front, back, or sleeve print. However, they also offer “All over print” t-shirts which allow you to create designs that are for the entire shirt, covered from corner to corner. You can also get the inside label to be your brand for an extra cost.
The best part is they have unique products for Men, Women, and Kids, as well as unisex versions. One thing is for sure, you’re not sure on options when using Printful.
Printful provides you the cost for each t-shirt without any hidden fees and then allows you to determine what you want to charge for it. Not only that, you are able to set your price by the dollar amount, but you can also do it by the margin that you want to make on each design, and on each t-shirt size. This is where the cost of the t-shirt becomes important.
Do you want to see your logo on backpacks? Coffee mugs?
Any kind of clothing other than T-shirts? Sell all these and even more with help from Printful.
If you already manufacture your own products, Printful can still help with dropshipping. Instead of dealing with inventory and shipping on your own, they can do it all in your stead.
One of the best thigns about Printful is they have many shipping options available. They give you the pricing of each shipping option that exists on their platform and you are able to pick the ones you want available to your customers to include those costs in your shipping checkout. Items like posters have their own shipping pricing which saves you time on calculation. The best part is you can also create one flat rate shipping option across the board. This helps when you don’t sell too many variations of items.
Your customers will want to see what your products look like before they buy. Show off their good side with the expertise and editing tools of Printful’s in-house photographers.
Like a mysterious cowboy singlehandedly saving a Western town, Printful doesn’t need credit for doing their job. This white-label dropshipper allows you to customize the packaging so it looks distinctly yours.
The first step is t signup for a free Printful account and integrate your e-commerce store. 3dcart makes this process really simple.
The next step is to think about what products you want to sell and create the designs for these products.
Now its time to see your designs in action! This will be really easy as Printful has a great mockup generator and even lets you tweak the design on the spot with text and graphics. This is the part where you also include all of your product descriptions.
You can’t make money if you don't add your margin on top of the cost of the goods. Printful also makes this easy by adding either a dollar or percentage value to any product and product size. You’ll also want to set up your shipping rates to make sure your shipping isn’t cutting into the margins.
Now its time to show the world what you’ve created! The best part is, outside of marketing the products, it will be completely hands off for you at this point. Just watch the orders roll in and watch your bank account grow while Printful takes care of all your shopping needs.
“We’re able to make those choices now more than ever before thanks to having access to more easily accessible and detailed data about our orders and shipping. I try not to dwell too much on the amount time we’ve wasted over the past few years trying to do this very same thing with the tools (and I use the term loosely) we were using before Shipstation.”
