Storage and fulfillment pricing
Your storage costs depend on the number of items (products, pack-ins, packaging) and the space they take up in Printful’s fulfillment warehouses. If you store:
- 1–200 items, then you pay $1.65/ €1.40 per cu. ft. of storage
- 201–1,000 items, then you pay $1.30/ €1.10 per cu. ft. of storage
- 1,001–10,000 items, then you pay $1.00/ €0.85 per cu. ft. of storage
- 10,000+ items, then you pay $0.75/ €0.65 per cu. ft. of storage
The minimum storage cost is $25/month (€22.00/month). If the items you store don’t add up to $25 worth of storage space, you still have to pay the minimum cost of $25/month.
Storage fees are calculated based on the dimensions of a single item in its storing condition. When you submit your packaging for approval, you’ll be asked for these dimensions.
Order fulfillment fees cover the work to process your customer’s order, pick the packaging from warehouse shelves, and pack the order for shipping.
The order fulfillment costs are charged per order with custom packaging.
The picking fee for orders with custom packaging is $0.50 per mailer, so if an order is packed in your custom packaging, you’ll pay $0.50 in picking fees.
Key things to note
Your branded packaging can be used for all products except drinkware, wall art, structured hats, stationery, jewelry, and keychains, as they have specific packaging to ensure safe delivery to your customers.
To make sure products are packaged in your custom mailers, check that your branded packaging fits all the items you sell. You can stock multiple sizes of packaging.
If your packaging isn’t the right size for a certain product, is out of stock, or isn’t available at the location where your products are fulfilled, your orders will be sent out in our white-label packaging.
Keep your packaging close to where your customers are based. We offer custom packaging at the following fulfillment centers:
- In Europe—Riga, Latvia (both facilities), Barcelona, Spain, or Birmingham, the UK
- In the US—Charlotte, NC (both facilities), Dallas, TX, and Los Angeles, CA
- In Canada—Toronto, Ontario
- In Mexico— Tijuana
We don’t offer custom packaging at our partner facilities in Australia or Japan. Learn more about where to send your packaging.
Currently, we can only use poly mailers, bubble mailers, and paper mailers to pack your orders.
