Printful to offer localized services in the Brazilian market
May 5, 2021
Charlotte, North Carolina — To provide its services in Brazil, Printful is partnering with local manufacturers in two major Brazilian cities—Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. One of the partners will print apparel products, while the other will focus on interior, and home and living items. The company has had similar successful partnerships in Australia and Japan.
Print-on-demand services by Printful are becoming increasingly popular all over the world. In 2020, Printful saw their demand in Brazil increase as much as 84%, and considering that Brazil is responsible for more than 60% of the ecommerce market in South America the next consequential step was to bring Printful services to Brazil. Following numerous quality control tests, Printful is confident that the quality of the new partner facilities matches that of its own fulfillment centers.
“We’re excited to offer our current and future customers in Brazil a unique print-on-demand experience,” says Printful CEO Davis Siksnans. “Customers in Brazil will be able to start their own businesses by taking advantage of our services in their own language, as well as our integrations with top ecommerce platforms and marketplaces.”
The company's presence in the Brazilian market will significantly improve delivery speeds—shipments in Brazil will be delivered within 1–5 business days. This will also reduce delivery costs and customers won't have to worry about customs duties.
To further integrate into the market, Printful offers the use of the Brazilian real currency. A Brazillian Portuguese version of the Printful website will be available later this year.
Printful is an on-demand printing and warehousing company that helps people turn their ideas into brands and products. The company fulfills and ships custom clothing, accessories, and home & living items for online businesses. Since its founding in 2013, Printful has been trusted to deliver 31M+ items, and in 2019 the company hit a revenue milestone of $116 million. Printful has scaled to a team of 1,800+ people across nine fulfillment centers around the world.
Update (April 5, 2022): Printful has decided to optimize fulfillment in Brazil by transferring the production of non-apparel products to its partner facility in Rio de Janeiro. This decision means that Printful is ending its partnership with the fulfillment center in Sao Paulo as of April 1, 2022.
