We've added 6 new colours for women's T-shirts, they are as follows:
We're also expecting a few more products incoming before the weekend:

As many of you have noticed, we've been extremely busy in August updating PrintPit. Not only has the site been re-designed to be easier on the eye and a bit more modern, but we've started trials for many requested features.
The features currently being trialed at this time are:
Please note: Most of the above features are not accessible at the time of writing and some details may change by the time of public release.
One other update you might've missed - Tracking is now available on overseas items! We ultimately had to settle for different rates to get the cheapest possible prices, so right now European items can go tracked for just £6, and that rises to £6.50 anywhere else in the world. Still, £6 was always the aim, so we feel it's a job well done!
We are also now back on our usual support number at 0130 2820 014.
As usual, please voice any concerns to your account manager, or if you don't have one please feel free to contact support either by using the blue box in the bottom right or by emailing [email protected]

Today, we've made all four of the "coming soon" products available, head over to our custom products section to find them. These include the following:
The varsity jacket is particularly interesting as it's our first product available with double sided printing. We will be using this to identify issues with the product designer with a view to include double sided printing on more products in the future, including T-shirts. Although (with the help of some merchants) we think we've ironed out all issues with double sided designing, please do let your account manager know asap if you find any.
If you don't think you have an account manager, please email [email protected] so that we can assign someone to your store. On that topic, we'd also like to remind merchants that some emails from support (including order and shipping confirmations) are noreply, at the bottom of any noreply message will be a note that says not to reply to that email, but to start a fresh one. This is because all noreply emails are filtered out our inboxes, so we won't get to see them.
One major announcement is that progress is now being made with our overseas contracts, meaning we will soon be adding tracking options to international orders. We know a lot of you have wanted this option for a while, however even on our contract rates the charge would've had to be at least £11. We're now close to half that price with Royal Mail. We're allowing other companies to submit their offers based on these new prices, which should only take a matter of days. Once we've had a chance to consider them, we will add the overseas tracking option. For now though, it looks like overseas postage will remain at £3, with the option to add tracking for a further £3.
We do have many more products in development, however please let your account manager know if there are any particular products you'd like to be able to customise here at PrintPit. All four products released this weekend were the result of merchants requesting them from their account manager. We're always open to your suggestions, and often we find that products you suggest are already in development, so we re-order the queue and get those ones available quicker.
One final note, we're still unfortunately having to use the temporary phone number which is 01302 787350.
Best of luck with all your stores!

We're pleased to announce that we've moved into a larger main production space and it is completely operational as of the 1st July. This space allowed us to begin to stock an even wider range of products, some of which we'll roll out over the next few weeks.
A product launching today after popular demand is printed tote bags. These will be available over in our custom products section, and we will be launching with Natural and White for primary colours. We've also added custom Samsung S7 cases in black and white. As ever, the prices quoted include the blank item, printing and postage within the UK First Class. We've also added the ability to have printing on both sides of our tote bags as this was a popular request from our merchants.
If there is a popular product you would like to see added to our selection of products here at PrintPit, then let us know! We'd be happy to hear from you. Upcoming new products that are currently in our review or developmental stages are;
Aside from this we have made great progress in new features hoping to be released to all of our customers soon, ranging from automatic creation for all of our products after uploading only one image, automatic order fulfilment from various e-Commerce platforms and finally the addition of Overseas Tracked Postage due to our ongoing work with third parties to ensure the best price for you, our customers.
We have a temporary phone number whilst BT are porting our original number over to our new building, which for any emergency support contact is 01302 787350.
Many thanks as always & good luck with your ever expanding stores.

We're pleased to announce mousepads have been added to our customisable stock due to a request from one of our merchants. May i just take this opportunity to remind you all that any concerns you have (including expansion of base products) can be discussed with your account manager. We're here to help you grow your business, by whatever means we can. Whilst we're always trying to expand our product range, if you feel like there's something missing please don't be too shy to give us a shout.
On another note, we know some of you experienced some quality issues with mockups from the designer. We do recommend that for your mockups you use images that are 1400 px wide or 1600 px tall (whichever comes first), but even then you may still see a grainy image on the mockups, this is down to us taking a very large images from you and scaling them down to fit on the mockups. Please let me assure you that the images we receive for print are the size you originally uploaded and not the smaller images you see on the mockups, so no quality should be lost as long as you upload a large enough image. That being said, we did find some issues in our scaling script which have now been rectified, meaning your mockups should passively be better quality from now.
We've also changed how products are displayed on our homepage, instead of a long list you'll now just see the 4 most recent additions to our customisable stock and the current 4 best selling base items. To find the rest, you can either click the create your own button on the homepage, or use the 'custom products' link in the top right navigation. You'll notice that takes you to a re-designed custom products page which has now been categorised properly to help speed your creation process up.
Many thanks & as always good luck with your stores!

Two important items have been added to the learning centre today
First, Shipping costs & Times:
Second, A great strategy on bringing marketplace buyers to your webstores:
Welcome to PrintPit version 2! We've re-launched on a totally new system which is much more functional, and looks a lot nicer! (or at least, we think it does).
Over the next few days, the site will be updated with all the learning centre topics (sorry if you had any of these bookmarked, but the links have changed slightly), and new products and features will be added.
Any questions, don't hesitate to contact our support, and if we're offline just simply leave us a message and we'll get back to you as soon as physically possible!
All the best
The PrintPit UK Team.
