Finding the best Fulfilment Companies for Print on Demand products can prove very difficult when you don't know where to start. The industry is filled with hundreds, if not thousands of fulfillers.

It's not just about deciding on one, it's about knowing they are the right partner. There is nothing worse than finding out you are married to a fulfillment company that repeatedly lets you down. I have had to go through the process of reuploading hundreds of designs when that particular problem raised its head.

It's in that vein, that I have compiled this list for you so you don't have to deal with those same issues.

The following 7 fulfillment companies (it might go up, so if I add one and forget to update this 7...please forgive me 😂) for print on demand are all companies I have worked with without any major issues.

When it comes to the scale that we aim to hit, it would be near on impossible to find a company that is perfect all the time, even Bezos has troubles with Amazon. With that in mind,

I am confident in recommending these platforms to you.

GearLaunch is the company I have been using in my stores in the USA.

With Facebook's recent push to shut down unethical drop shippers with dodgy products it is paramount that as a business we can move fast to have shit sorted asap.

It is this responsiveness and attention that makes a world of difference in the POD landscape.

5Shine On Jewelry

 

I could certainly be described as biased when it comes to Shine On, however, I have not found a company that comes close.

Their quality is far superior to anyone on the market. What that means for you as a business is that your customers get premium pieces of Jewellery that they'll love! Customers that love your products come back, and businesses with repeat customers become successful!

I have been involved with Shine On since 2015, however, struck my success with them in the September of 2016 and have now sold over 6000 pieces with them. Check out the recent review of my favorite fulfillment company.

Products

  • Printable heart pendants - Necklace & bangleShine On Jewelry
  • Double braided bracelet - (real leather) w/ charm (printable round & heart)
  • Luxury bracelet (think snake chain) w/ charm (printable round & heart)
  • Printable circle pendants - Necklace & bangle
  • Printable oval pendants - Necklace & bangle
  • Custom inserts

 

Pro's

  • Responsive to requests
  • Good shipping times
  • Quality products
  • GREAT customer service. If something is wrong they go out of their way to fix any issues.
  • Great Customisability with product inserts.

4Pillow Profits

 

These guys are super innovative and it's amazing to see what new products they're bringing out. Adam does an incredible job of finding new hot products for his sellers. The latest one I have seen are car seats.

Pillow Profits

I was first introduced to Adam via Eric (at Shine On) as he'd heard of the opportunity PP presented.

I was looking for another store and after discussing with Adam about custom printed sneakers I decided to act. In about 2 hours I had my store setup and started selling the sneakers.

Holy moly did it take off, within a few weeks I'd done over $300k USD in sales...then. the Facebook Pixel update come through and wrecked any scaling attempts I'd make.

If you want to read a month in-depth review of Pillow Profits I go into great detail in a recent article.

Products

  • Car seat covers
  • Pillow covers
  • Tote bags
  • Leather tote
  • Shoulder handbag
  • Canvas/Leather Saddlebag
  • High & low tops
  • Socks
  • Sneakers
  • Slip on's
  • Backpacks
  • Bedding sets
  • Leather boots
  • Faux fur boots
  • 3,4,5 Piece framed canvas

pillow profits shoes

Pro's

  • Viral products.
  • Easy designer.
  • Great customer service.
  • Free size exchanges (if size is not more than 2 sizes from original order)

Con's

  • Make a note on the sales page to select the correct size. Unfortunately, Shopify defaults to the smallest size (which is infuriating when it comes to exchanges. I wasn't aware when my products first started selling which resulted in a lot of customer service man hours).

3Printful

I have not personally used Printful for any length of time, however, I continually hear good things about them. Printful is one of the main Fulfilment Companies for Print on Demand that you'd use if you were creating a streetwear brand, where better quality shirts/apparel are key.

The company is big, offers quality products & is based in the US making it a great option for those selling into North America.

With over 1200 5 star reviews it needed to be added into the list.

Products

  • T-shirts
  • Sweatshirts
  • Leggings
  • All-over shirts and tank tops
  • Dresses
  • Skirts
  • Phone cases
  • Sublimated socks
  • Posters
  • Framed Posters
  • Canvas
  • Mugs
  • Embroidery
  • Totes
  • Throw Pillows
  • Beach Blankets

Pro's

  • Offers warehousing (great if you need help fulfilling your own products)
  • USA Based (EDIT: They now have an EU location and ship worldwide)
  • Quality products
  • Easy to use

Con's

  • If you have other fulfillers you work with you will need to exclude any new launches that you don't want on Printful. Get's annoying with the notifications.

2Teespring

I absolutely love Teespring. It is one of the best print on demand t shirt companies, if not the best. Despite the massive boom in Shopify land, Teespring remains close to my heart. They were the company where I really learned to master the art of Facebook marketing for POD.

They were the arguably the first company to create the massive interest in this style of marketing and what paved the way for companies like Shopify. Every time I look back on my time with Teespring I look back with nostalgia, of the people I knew and the company it was.

Teespring is massively reinvigorating the POD space with awesome products coming to market and a new global launcher. For the new marketer, Teespring is a great place to start.

Having the hyper-focus on marketing and design ideation allows you to become a master of the art before becoming a master of everything when you embark on something like an e-commerce store with Shopify.

Products;

  • Apparel
  • Home decor
  • Stickers
  • Phone cases
  • Socks
  • Tote bags (all over print/sublimation)
  • Leggings
  • Towels
  • Flags

Pro's

  • Allows you hyper-focus on mastering direct traffic
  • Allows you to focus on design ideation
  • A simplistic way of selling online
  • Low barrier to entry
  • No customer service issues
  • Global launcher

Con's

  • Harder to build a brand
  • No way to communicate with customer service inquiries
  • No hard assets for selling a business

1WC Fulfilment

These guys (as far as I'm aware) are a relatively new company on the scene. New they may be, awesome products they do have. I didn't realize it but Nate (the Owner) was in my group recently when he pointed out that I had missed him on the list.

Then, a comment quickly followed saying that their products were great, or at least the feedback suggested that. That is all I need to start crushing with these watches!

So I opted to include them in my list of the Best Of. Why? Because they have some of the most innovative products on the market and have over 230 5 star ratings.

  • I got nothing... Time for me to test, test, test
