From a social media page to an ecommerce empire

Learn how Inspire Uplift reached 15K orders a month using print-on-demand

Turning millions of followers into customers

Inspire Uplift started out 5 years ago as a couple of people running a Facebook page where they shared memes and quotes. After gaining millions of followers, the page transitioned into a Shopify store.

2 years ago, they built a marketplace for other small businesses, connecting sellers with a wider audience. Now the platform offers everything from custom apparel to electronics and has reached over 1.5M customers.

Uncapped production

With on-demand fulfillment, Inspire Uplift could offer an unlimited number of products and designs without worrying about bulk ordering, fulfillment, shipping, and leftover stock.

limitless designs

Unlimited experiments

Print-on-demand enabled the company to respond to trends in real time. “We could experiment with 10, 20, or even 50 t-shirts and see which one would . . . go viral,” reflects co-founder Aaron Wallace.

quality control

Consistent product quality

Inspire Uplift tried several print-on-demand services, but the quality was often inconsistent. They chose Printful, as its 3-step quality control process ensured fewer product returns.
