unsold inventory

Stop losing money on unsold inventory

Sell merchandise worldwide with on-demand fulfillment

Bulk manufacturing limits your growth

product offering

Your product offering is limited

Releasing new collections is costly and risky. You have to forecast demand, invest in inventory, and risk losing money when a product doesn’t sell. That limits your ability to test more designs and products. 

With Printful on-demand production, you can:

  • Expand your product assortment with 411 products
  • Experiment with new designs without upfront costs
  • See what sells and adjust your assortment accordingly

 

 

long time-to-market

It takes months to release new products

Bulk manufacturing is time-consuming. It takes weeks or even months to add new products to your store. It’s complicated to test new designs and impossible to react to trends fast. 


With our free design tools and on-demand production, you can:

  • Reduce your time-to-market from months to hours
  • React to trends immediately and test all your ideas
  • Never get stuck with unsold inventory when trends lose popularity

 

 

product customization

Product customization is ineffective for you

Screen printing in bulk means you can’t let your customers design their own merchandise. 

With our design tool integration and on-demand production, you can:

  • Let customers personalize your products at no extra cost
  • Attract new customers by offering a personal shopping experience
  • Stand out from other brands and engage with customers

 

 

leftover stock

You risk losing money with under or overstocking

Ordering in bulk means buying inventory. It’s hard to forecast demand and predict emerging trends, so you might end up with too much or too little stock. 

On-demand manufacturing allows you to:

  • Mitigate inventory risks if a product doesn’t sell
  • Avoid missing out on sales because of out-of-stock items
  • Increase production capacity according to seasonal demand

Scale your business with on-demand fulfillment
