Pros: The software front end (the customer interface) is fantastic. Our customers are easily able to place orders with little to no training on using the website. It allows the customer to be in full control of how they want their project to look.

The administrative back end is fairly easy to maneuver as well. Processing an order is a breeze and making adjustments to our metrics (e.g. adjusting the prices or menu options) is done quick and easy. Running reports at the end of the month is also a great feature that allows us know how we are growing.

Cons: On the administrator side there are a few features such as the "design" mode when building the email template or updating a page (on the website) graphics that are difficult to use unless you are well versed in writing code. It wold be helpful if this were more of an InDesign or Word format feature that would allow you place graphics and format text without the need for writing code.

It would also be nice if there were a character recognition feature in the image library of the clients to keep duplicate file names from being uploaded. Some of our clients upload the same image multiple times within the same image library or even load different images that have the same file name. This bogs down and can be confusing when trying to update an image in the clients library.

The clients are unable to see the file name of their images in the image libraries unless they hover the mouse cursor over the image in the right spot.

Overall: HeadShots2Go.com has been using PrintNow since 2012. PrintNow helped us design a photo retouch and customer driven headshot ordering workflow that allows us to cater specifically to the printing needs of the model and talent industry. The development work we received is one of the the most sophisticated on-line ordering systems around and meets all of our needs as well as being a breeze for our customers to navigate. It's still working in place today after thousands of online orders and continues to get better. We have witnessed significant advances in PrintNow's web-to-print technology through the years, and the support team is phenomenal!

Pros: We really like PrintNow's customization abilities, amount of features, and integrations in & out of their system. We use Zapier and SiteFlow(OneFlow) to get data in and out of the system all day every day.

PrintNow has a great dashboard for the casual employee at our print shop who just needs to be able to track and report on jobs. It also has almost all the options the designers and IT people need in the back-end to make everything work and look great.

One of the best features is customer service, they're great. Always willing to lend a hand and walk you though something or just fix it quickly.

Cons: Some of it's strengths can be weaknesses. With all the options, it can get very complicated to get everything setup just right and as other's have mentioned, coding skills are almost mandatory for whoever is administering the site.

Shipping isn't quite where I think it should be or probably where they think it should be either(Feb 2019) but integrations with a shipping service are easy enough but a baked-in solution would be better.

Overall: PrintNow has made huge strides in the few short years we've been using it and I know they have a major updating coming in 2019.

They've solved some of our biggest issues and given us the flexibility to better serve our customers.

Pros: We enjoy all the user friendly aspects of the software for our agents. Some of our clients are technologically challenged and the way Printnow has this software set up makes it easy for folk of different user abilities to use. The back end of the software is also very user friendly for folk to set up their pricing, to upload our design online templates, and to look at our sales & sales tax reports.

Cons: The only thing we wish we could do is be able to add any additional fees that get incurred if a client wants to make a change or do something custom. Since its not a static pricing as of yet we can't incorporate this into the site, but Printnow is always advancing that perhaps in the future!

Overall: Our overall experience has been great with Printnow. We decided to go with them because we felt there was more of a personal connection which we feel is important when making any kind of financial investment for our company. We were able to share our vision with Printnow and they were able to go beyond our expectations. We appreciated that they walked us through any issues we had, heard our feedback, and were able to work with our team on our end that isn't always on the same page on how we communicate which they patiently worked with. Their level of expertise and professionalism is great and we would be happy to recommend their product and their team for any software needs.

Pros: We met the owner of PrintNow Technologies, in New York City in the summer of 2015. It gave us a chance to talk about our business goals and learn more about potential synergies. We were working with a local Development firm at that time to help us with branding and design. The team sold us on using their platform for all the built-in tools. Soon the web developers were merging their creativity with his web to print technology. PrintNow offers a complete package, support, and resources. I sincerely recommend PrintNow to print providers looking for online technology to help automate their print business.

Cons: Our site is a bit dated and needs help with the look and feel. I wish there was an easier way to update the design of our site.

Pros: Ease of Use, Quick Product Setup, Developer Friendly, Highly Customizable, Excellent Customer Service, 1-1 On-Boarding Training, Intuitive User Dashboard

Cons: No integrated split shipping (currently, work around is available via pricing options), no freight shipping.

Overall: PrintNow is an exceptional web-to-print platform that's helping us to expand our online offerings. We spent a lot of time reviewing other solutions, but nothing else quite measured up. We've enjoyed working with the on-boarding & services teams, and they've both helped direct us as we continue to launch new brands. As a developer, I love the ease of use and how open the platform is to customization. I highly recommend anyone looking for a similar solution to use PrintNow.
