Re: We are starting a canadian t-shirt fulfillment & dropshipping business

After a lot of research I finally found a Canadian Company. https://www.teehatch.com

They don't have a lot of options, but they are willing to add more as customers request them. Worth a try!

My be a part solution, you can use shopify that will get you 30% off the canada post shipping rates, they have an app that does t-shirt online design, we are considering them vs deconetwork which is another option both have shopping carts and online designers, for DTG printers.

Has anyone made any progress with this Canadian Fulfillment? I hear from one of my contrast in BC has been trying to set up, so far no details. My company does contract printing and this really would be a nice steady stream for everyone involved.

Since this is a pain point for several Canadians trying to do business inside this country, my husband and I are looking to start our own.
I am in Calgary and looking to create a Canadian based print and fulfillment operation.

Smaller market probably is the issue, but for me I would rather
work a smaller market and not try to be everything to everybody.

That's amazing "hack"
But I wish we had a dropshipping company here

Back to the original post: I think Canadian market is relatively smaller compared to USA and that's why companies don't rush into Canada with all their services, so we have to wait

As for the startup costs - I think there is a lot of money/effort to start POD company - setting up the production, logistics, online interface for accepting orders, etc...

That's pretty awesome. We are not far away from the U.S. border either, so we could mail the packages from the U.S. to lower cost.

Re: We are starting a canadian t-shirt fulfillment & dropshipping business

Hi everyone,

I know there are no Canadian Fulfillment Services similar to Printful or Print Aura. I see so many posts and requests on forums and Facebook groups, but no one has the answer.

Since this is a pain point for several Canadians trying to do business inside this country, my husband and I are looking to start our own.

We're just wondering if any of you have tried this or know of anyone who has tried before and was not able to make it work. Is there any reason that we do not have one? We have done research and all we can see is the high shipping cost. I have spoken to some friends who have been long-time Canada Post employees and the cost is minimal sending via oversized lettermail. Even registered mail is $9.00, which could be worse.

We're thinking with the Canadian Dollar being so low, it's beneficial to Canadians and Americans. It would be a good time to keep our money strong within Canada.

We're also going to start a crowdfunding page to help start us out. We will start small and when the customers start coming in with more orders, we will add more options.

We would appreciate any feedback. This would help with our market research.

Thank you so much!

Chantal & Michael
