Guest Posting Checklist

Submission process

We only consider submissions that follow these steps:

Step 1: Do your homework. Head over to the Printful blog and read our articles to understand the content we publish on our blog.

Step 2: Pitch your idea. If you believe you can write an article that fits our blog style, email us at guestpost@printful.com

In your pitch:
Tell us about yourself and your article idea
and include at least 3 links to your previous publications. Feel free to add some personality! 

If your email sparks our interest, we’ll respond to you and together decide on the title, outline, and keyword research for this article. You’ll then have the green light to start writing.

Step 3: Write the article following our Guest Posting Checklist.

We only accept original content written specifically for our audience. The Printful blog will not tolerate plagiarism.

Step 4: Submit a completed article within 3 weeks from receiving our confirmation.

Your first submission must include: 

  • The completed article in a Google Doc with editing enabled
  • Your author’s bio (up to 170 characters) and a photo
  • A Google Drive folder with images used in the article.

We’ll let you know if we’re interested in publishing your work within 2 weeks from your first submission. If your first draft meets our expectations, we’ll continue working with you and send you our edits and feedback.

Step 5: Update your article based on our feedback and submit the final version.

Ideally, your second draft should be the final draft.

While crafting the final draft, follow our editors’ suggestions and feedback. If you don’t agree with a suggestion, please explain why in the comments in the document.

We’re open to one more round of edits if your submission is almost in perfect shape. We reserve the right to dismiss your submission if the article doesn’t follow our blog standards after two rounds of editing.
