A print-on-demand app which directly ships from supplier to customer, Printful is one of the best apps for store owners selling print or embroidered t-shirts, mugs, jackets and other goods.

Printful takes care of all your custom branding, printing and shipping needs.

5/5 Review by ArtLady Designs LLC : “I would recommend Printful because of the service. A real person sends answers back if you email them with questions, or if they find a problem with the order – such as an image being off center. The actual products are 99% like the mockups. My customers love their products. I love the quality and the fact that I can design, order, and get everything made and shipped from one app. Printful does most of the hard work. Thank You Printful.”

5/5 Review by Orgain: “I’ve been in CRM for over a decade. If you use Shopify, hands down this is the best email marketing platform you can use. The editor and segment creator are easy to use and include advance features. Also, integrations into Shopify and most Shopify apps take just minutes to set up. Outside of that, you get unlimited support and a dedicated success manager. My personal opinion…Klaviyo should be on every marketer’s short-list when considering a new ESP.”

5/5 Review by Rotation Boutique: “We would be lost without this app: cropping images, resizing, changing formats,…you HAVE to automate this when you´re getting so many new items every season! We´re running this app on a daily-task basis and it works perfectly fine. Since we have a limited number of images that can be rendered per month, you can chose which images you want to be done, for example only those visible at the moment. Also really helpful with SEO. You can name images, include your shopname…highly recommended!”
