Best Print On Demand Companies For Shopify

Best Print On Demand Companies For Shopify

 

Looking to dropship unique items and avoid the competition and the unreliable suppliers from AliExpress. Here is a list of Apps for the best print on demand companies for Shopify that offer higher quality, faster shipping, more reliability, better communication and a wide selection of items that you can place your unique designs on and market to audience.

 

Forget about the long lists of 10+ Apps that you won’t use. I will only mentioned the most reliable companies with the unique items without exhausting you with a long list that will just leave you confused. Sometimes, less is more.

 

I will mention these apps in an order that I recommend you to consider them. But of course, there is nothing that prevents you from using all of them as each one has its own unique items.

 

So, without further due, let’s get started with my preferred Print On Demand Shopify App:

 

1 – WC Fulfillment


 

This free to install POD App has been released only in 2018, but in few months they made it to the top 10 POD fulfillment apps on the Shopify App Store.

 

Many reasons I have put this relatively new app on the number # 1 spot including the following:

1 – A wide variety of unique items when compared to other Print On Demand companies such as: Watches, Wallet Phone Cases, Women’s Purse, Men’s Wallets, Hooded Blankets, …etc.

2 – The App gives you an access to lots of resources such as: A Facebook Ads Course, video training on how do the designs by yourself using different softwares, many mockup files for each item with different backgrounds, video mockups for different products, and even free successful designs (image and video) for many items in many niches that the owner of this app used in the past.

Also, a list of 25+ buyer niches with targeting data to use in Facebook Ads, Email Scripts for many cases and situations that will help you with customers and many other useful stuff being added continuously.

No other Print On Demand App gives you these stuff.

 

 

3 – The owner of the App (Nate Andres) has been already successful in the Shopify Dropshipping field, both with Aliexpress and POD.

He has a YouTube Channel (Click here to subscribe!) and he teaches you literally everything he learned and used successfully in his journey for the past few years from researching design ideas, to getting great designs for the lowest possible cost, test designs and finding possible winners, creating testing and selling campaigns on Facebook with all the tricks that you need to learn that others aren’t even sharing in their overpriced ($997+) courses, scaling winning campaigns, having a professional store and many other great stuff. Tens of hours of pure value on his YouTube Channel, no BS.

4 – Prices are relatively low-average when it comes to POD, and since many of them are unique, this gives you a better margin when pricing the products on your own store and enjoy a higher profit.

5 – For some items, express shipping is available and many of the items are fulfilled and shipped from the US.

 

I Believe the above five reasons, along with the 240 reviews on the Shopify App Store with the rating of 4.8 stars (till the moment of writing this article) are enough to place it in the first spot when it comes to the POD Services that you can integrate with a Shopify store.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Following are the items that are available at the moment on the WC Fulfillment App:

1 – Wallet Phone Cases: suitable for 50+ phone types/models.

2 – Watches: Black, Silver & Rose Gold colors with different types/colors of bands that the buyer can select and can even buy as an additional upsell. (higher possible AOV)

3 – Wallet Purse for Women.

4 – Men’s Wallets.

5 – Hooded Blankets: with FREE UPS Express Shipping 5-8 Days (USA + Worldwide).

6 – Normal Blankets: with FREE UPS Express Shipping 5-8 Days (USA + Worldwide).

7 – Round Beach Blankets.

8 – Normal Phone Cases: Available for 20+ phone types/models.

 

What I don’t like about it:

1 – Some items take long time to ship due to the fulfillment from China.

The above is a long list of items and they are continuously adding new products, however, this doesn’t mean that there is nothing that I don’t like about this App such as:

1 – The average rating is 4.6 stars although they are the most popular POD App on Shopify App Store. I have seen many 1, 2 and 3 star rating complaining about the quality of the products received, sending wrong items to the customers, …etc.

2 – The products are a bit pricy when compared to similar products from other Print On Demand Companies. I would expect at least a rating of 4.9 stars.

4 – Pillow Profits

This app is a bit similar to Printful but each one has some unique products that aren’t provided by the other one. This is a paid app with 7-Days free trial and $29.99/month after that. It’s current rating on the App Store is 4.8 stars with around 700 reviews.

Many reasons that made me add the app to my list of best POD apps for Shopify, including:

What I don’t like about this app:

1 – You have to pay in order to use the app, regardless of the number of the orders. And the free trial is only 7-days.

2 – There are some negative reviews from unsatisfied users of the app. But still, the overall rating is 4.8 stars which is outstanding.

  1. Blown away by your article.  I had no idea of the different print on demand options with Shopify.  This really allows you to customize products for folks.  Great feature for a gift-giving storefront.

    I appreciate you doing all the research on how it install the apps and integrate to a Shopify store.

    The Pillow Profits app seems like a no-brainer.  I’m amazed at how many products you can use with this platform.

    You have definitely given me new motivation on how to jump start my new store.  I’ll be sure keep you updated on which of these apps I end up using.  Thanks again!

    • Hello Tim and thank you for the comment!

      That’s great, all the mentioned above are great POD Apps for Shopify Integration. I like both Pillow Profits and WC Fulfillment as they have the 4.8 Stars rating with hundreds of reviews. And both keep adding new items.

  2. Hey Amjad! 

    Thanks for taking the time to write this detailed guide about the best print on demand companies for Shopify. I like that you included different types of print that at least I hadn’t thought about like jewelry print. I also like the clear, bulleted breakdowns. It makes it much easier to read and understand what is available than having a paragraph style ocean of words.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Marlinda

    • Hello Marlinda and thank you for passing by!

      I’m glad that you liked the options I mentioned for the POD Companies that have Apps to be integrated with your Shopify store.

      Please, let me know once you try any of them. I would love to hear your feedback!

      Thanks a lot!

  3. I love all the different options of print on demand with Shopify!! So many different products too. 

    the jelwery is cute! And I love the pillows, wall art, but mostly the phone cases as I have a obsession with collecting phone cases, so I may have to get a lovely print of my cats on a phone case and sell it!

    But more than one offers phone cases, which one do you recommend the most?

    Thanks in advance!

    Jayde

    • Hello Jayde and thank you for the comment and for the question!

      I highly recommend WC Fulfillment as they offer also Wallet Phone Cases, which is more unique than normal phone cases when it comes to Print on Demand.

      Please, let me know once you try it how it went. Would love to hear your feedback!

  4. This has been an excellent resource for me to sort out options for different print on demand routes with Shopify, thanks so much for publishing it and making the whole chore easier for me. 

    Out of all the apps you’ve listed here, you seem to be leaning more towards the Pillow Profits – is this the best option for a relative newbie to take on? Also, how much success have you seen through the listed apps above?

    • Hello Chris and thank you for the questions!

      Actually, I lean more towards WC Fulfillment which is free to use, unlike Pillow Profits, which is also a great POD App. 

      I feel that the market is a bit competitive with products such t-shirts, hoodies, normal phone cases, mugs, …etc. This is why I lean more to WC Fulfillment which focuses mainly on the latest unique products. 

      But in general, all other apps has their own unique products even if they have more common products. All of them are great. It is up to you to find the one that would work better for your store and target audience.

      I hope this answers your questions. Please, let me know if you need more help!

  5. What an amazing niche you found. Keep up the good work.

    I enjoyed reading about the options available for print-on-demand. Sometimes we feel so limited because we don’t want to buy more than one of, yet we want to buy something for a special someone, or give as a unique gift.

    As a website owner, this medium also provides an opportunity to offer something to site visitors that can add value to the website. Something like promotional materials etc… you have me thinking about the possibilities.

    I also took a look at your post about “How to make money reviewing products online” and I think you did a very good job presenting the information. You mention that English is not your first language, but your ideas and thoughts flow in a nice manner, it is actually quite a pleasant read. Congratulations!!!

    Wishing you all the best.

    • Thanks a lot Mitchguy!

      I really appreciate reading my articles and the encouraging words!

      Indeed, there are lots of opportunities in the online business world. You can mix lots of ideas or current business models in order to come in with innovative ways to make money.

      Thanks again for going through my websites and looking forward to hearing from you again!
