What is printing e-commerce website?
We all know what is e-commerce, a platform or website where you sell your stuff online in a simple manner. But the same pattern does not work when it comes to printing. Why? because you just cannot sell any visiting card unless they are personalized. While most of the other products in the market are generic and one product fits all (if the user chooses it). Since this is not the case with printing, everything needs to be personalized, it was hard for them to jump into e-commerce. But not anymore. Today we have tools in the market that provide web2print solutions like http://epan.in/printing.
So, these are special e-commerce platforms, where a vendor can create designs in terms of templates, and their user can personalize them with their details and place order.
Various e-commerce printing platforms?
We are not alone or first in the market (but definitely one of the best), there are a few other already going great, we have not done a survey to find best one or to compare them with http://epan.in/printing but a simple google query may result in sites like Pixopa, PrintJob etc. and a number of companies are doing great in the same industry like Printonclick, Vistaprint, and printing.com. Even if you have time and you are ready to compromise at some levels, you might find some open source versions of web2print applications.
Can small shops go online with web to print applications?
Yes, sure they can. The reason is, Outsourcing is already a very common scenario for printing industry, we have seen a number of companies started with just a web presence and web to print applications in industry and they continued to get their print done outside, soon when they feel stable in the industry they started investing in machines, For a large scale this is not advisable as you are dependent on other persons quality and timing and you have to keep your pricing a bit higher (Your margin+ your vendors margin). But still, it is a way to start. We have also seen companies making their online presence with such online application while continuing simple tasks offline such as offset printing on small scale. So, yes, any small printing company can go online with applications like xPrint.
