What is drop shipping?
The best alternative to storing your own inventory
Drop shipping is a business model where you sell products online through a product supplier. The supplier then fulfils and ships the orders. You save time and focus on your store while your drop shipping supplier takes care of your customers' orders.

I receive high-quality products
I am very happy with the service that Printful offers. The quality of the prints is of a very high standard and a lot of my customers comment on the quality which is always good when you’re selling artwork.
Our customers are constantly impressed
Since 2015, Printful has helped us grow by making premium quality products for us. Our customers are constantly impressed with the quality of the print and shirts. I wouldn't use Printful if they didn't carry across the premium quality nature of the products I desire my brand to be known for.
Start a business in your spare time with zero capital
Printful allowed me to start a business with zero capital in my spare time. It was easy to set up and Printful did all the hard work for me. All I have to do is supply the ideas, the traffic and everything else are in hand.
