Hey people, I'm going to be starting a photography prints store, and while I've seen lots of drop ship printers that do a dizzying array of products (t-shirts, mugs, etc) I haven't yet come across somebody who it's clear they do photography, well, and can ship fast to both Europe and the US. Have you found one you like, that's priced well, has reliable customer service, and does quality work?
Ren here from the Shopify support team, hoping to help you out here. As it stands, there isn't yet an integration that is solely for photography prints. However, many print on demand companies offer art prints along with their apparel and accessories.
The right app depends on what products you'd like to print your photography with. Some option include canvas sets, canvas wraps, acrylics prints, framed posters and prints, square prints, tapestries and wood prints.
Consider looking into:
Printful, Gooten, Kite and Pixels for their various print-on-demand art options. All four of these print-on-demand businesses have warehouses in both Europe and the US. Here's a great read for getting started with selling photography online. Photography as a product can be so versatile. Are you looking to sell stock images as well as your own physical prints?
Another excellent resource available is our full, free print-on-demand course from Shopify Academy which covers everything from establishing a niche to building a profitable business.
Do you have any questions on how to get started with these steps? Feel free to drop them in this thread. Best of luck.
hello, I am trying to install the CreativeHub app in my shopify store but i am getting an error message that appears to be coming from Shopify rather than the app itself. Would you know how I fix this so I can work on my prints in my shopify store? I have connected my domain name and everything else functions well. Thank you in advance and look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks for your post. The screenshot appears to be asking you to complete your domain settings though you indicated that's already been completed. Are you attempting to connect Creative Hub via this link? It may help to try and clear your browsers cache and try again or perhaps log-in to your Shopify account from another browser and navigate to the app store from there.
To do this, go to Apps to the left and use the Visit the Shopify app store link here:
Then search Creative Hub and see if that does the trick! Let me know how you fare.
Thank you Ren7. Turned out the app itself had a bug which they manually showed me how to bypass. I attach the instructions they sent me for anyone else who may need them also. I also went to Chrome which worked. I was youse Brave browser which probably had an ad blocker that restricted me. Thank you!
Thanks for letting me know, I'm very glad you managed to get connected. I'll be sure to file this resource away should I come across someone in need of help with the same issue. Much appreciated!
