Why do I use a Print on Demand site like Gearbubble instead of Aliexpress?
#1 It’s faster because most of my customers are based in the U.S. and so is Gearbubble. They dropship for the price of the item, plus $4.95 shipping, and $1 to fulfill the item. Plus, they provide all of the customer service (awesome!).
#2 I don’t have to worry about the Chinese New Year and trade sanctions or any other international difference by using a U.S. based company.
#3 So far all of my orders have arrived on time, and the customers on my Etsy shop are very happy, which makes me happy.
