How Printful is preparing for this year’s holiday rush

This will be our 7th holiday season, and we’re ready to bring our A-game!

Staying on top of communication

We’ll keep you in the loop if unexpected events like snowstorms, postal service disruptions, or fulfillment delays happen and affect holiday order deliverability

Supporting you along the way

We're taking on 400+ extra fulfillment and customer support employees to help you day or night

Keeping stock levels high

We’re actively communicating with our suppliers and stocking up on our most popular products to avoid out-of-stock situations as much as possible

Expanding production capacity

We expanded our operations in Mexico, opened a new fulfillment center in Spain, partnered up with local printing facilities in Australia and Japan, and started production tests in our fulfillment center in Canada

How you can increase holiday orders

Make your online store irresistible for holiday shoppers by following our product and marketing recommendations

Pick up your order in person

Due to concerns over Covid-19, our pickup points in Riga and Los Angeles are temporarily closed. If we open them for order pickup, we'll post the order deadlines for in-person pick up here, and email you.
