“We have proved ourselves a sustainable, ever-growing business that follows the current ecommerce trends. We work with great care because our customers trust us with what they value the most—their own customers. We’ve helped grow many successful ecommerce stores, and many brands rely on us to create their products,” states Davis Siksnans, the co-founder and CEO of Printful.
In March 2020, the US and many other countries have taken safety measures to limit the spread of Covid-19. These measures have shown to significantly impact US and worldwide economic growth. Initially, demand for Printful goods and services decreased, but it is now experiencing a rapid increase. To keep up, Printful is set to purchase additional equipment for 3.9 million US dollars.
Siksnans comments that “Printful management is following the guidance from the local and global authorities to ensure the health and safety of the employees. Even though adapting to new adjustments during the pandemic has created a noticeable decline for many businesses, Printful is experiencing order volume that can typically be seen during our peak sales period—Black Friday and Cyber Monday.”
Since Printful’s business is based on providing outsourced printing and shipping services for ecommerce store owners, the company predicts that despite the Covid-19 outbreak, the business could experience positive long-term effects.
