Printland.in is a web-based printing solution provider which offers corporate and business printing solutions and personalized printing solutions. The company claims to have served more than 15,000 customers since its launch in 2012, of which 80% were small and medium business enterprises.
Offerings: When we checked, we noticed that Printland.in offers corporate solutions like business printing solutions which includes printing of business cards, letterheads, envelopes, project reports, manuals, certificates, flyers, pamplets, brochures, posters, notepads, sticky notepads, and stickers among others; corporate merchandise printing solutions including coffee mugs, travel mugs, pen drives, mousepads, t-shirts, calendars, notebooks, and stickers among others and corporate gifting solutions for various occasions.
It also offers various consumer solutions like personalized gifts, invites, greeting cards, T-shirts, hoodies and stickers among others. The company website also suggests that it plans to add a special gifts section for consumers in the future.
Design Templates: Similar to its competitors, Printland.in offers readymade design templates for all its products, although its not clear how many designs does the site offer. Besides that, the site also allows customers to upload their own design and offers an online design tool for customers to create a new design on the portal. Sequoia Capital backed Printo offers a similar online design tool for all its products, however Printbindaas and Printvenue don’t offer any online design tool and only allow customers to upload a readymade design at the time of writing this article.
Payment Modes: At present, the site offers various payment modes like credit cards, debit cards, Netbanking and cash card, however we noticed that the site doesn’t offer Cash on delivery option at the time of writing this article.
The company offers free shipping for orders above Rs 300 and charges a flat Rs 30 shipping fee for orders below Rs 300. It claims to deliver products within three to five days within the country. We also noticed that the site offers International shipping, but there is no information on the shipping charge or delivery information on the company website at the time of writing this article. Printland.in also claims to offer overnight delivery service in select cities and 48-72 hour shipping facilities globally for a specific undisclosed amount.
As stated earlier, Printland competes with the Rocket Internet-backed Printvenue and Printbindaas which had raised angel funding from Manoj Kumar Swain and Rajesh Garg in August 2012. Sequoia Capital backed Printo offers a similar online printing service allowing customers to place orders for business cards, business stationary, flyers, brochures, customized diaries and so on.
On the personalized gifting front, Printland also competes with Inkfruit, although its worth noting that Inkfruit prints the design on t-shirts only if the design has bee approved by a significant number of Inkfruit users. There is also online photo printing startup Zoomin which raised around $1.5 million from SVB India Finance earlier in the month, although it focuses only on photo prints.
