The Canadian fulfillment center is a game-changer
Our dream could not have come true without Printful, and the new Canadian fulfillment center will be a game-changer for our shop. This is great for our Canadian customers because we can offer them free shipping with even better delivery times than we had in the past.

Printful lets us keep our product lineup fresh
I love Printful’s wide range of high quality products and their responsive customer service. Teaming up with Printful lets us keep our product lineup fresh, and gives us the freedom to grow the business without tying up our money with 2,000 t-shirts in my garage.

Faster fulfillment for Canadian orders
Printful impresses with its platform integrations, diverse portfolio, design tools, product quality, and responsive support. The throw pillows are a hit with customers. The new Toronto-area facility will mean faster fulfillment for Canadian orders, as well as allowing my customers and me to support local jobs. That's a big win!
