What is Printful?

Printful is a print-on-demand and fulfillment company that lets you sell custom products on your online store without dealing with equipment, shipping, or inventory management.

What is Gelato?

The Gelato print-on-demand network lets you design and sell custom products made by different partner fulfillment centers around the world.

Gelato doesn’t own the production process or print the products. Instead, the company acts as a middleman between you and different print providers.

All Gelato print-on-demand products are outsourced to other printing companies, each with its own print quality and shipping costs. The fulfillment centers used for each order are assigned automatically by the company.

What’s the main difference?
