Print Vendor Network.
Self-fulfillment has never been easier.

Introducing the PhotoShelter Print Vendor Network, an open network of print vendors that allows you to sell prints and products via your PhotoShelter website while assigning fulfillment to a printer of your choice, virtually anywhere in the world.

Choose your favorite vendors.
Send them orders in one click.

Find a print vendor in the PhotoShelter Print Vendor Network directory, or invite your favorite printer to join the network. Once the print vendor is registered, you'll be able to send them orders for fulfillment with single click (be sure to confirm products and pricing first). Add vendors to your "favorites" list to keep your workflow simple and efficient.

Additional benefits:

• Use PhotoShelter's sales tools, but print with anyone virtually anywhere in the world
• Offer local service, high-end custom prints and products, specialty items and more
• No technical integration required, so print vendors can be up and running in minutes

The Print Vendor Network is launching with more than 25 recognized print services, from high end fine art specialists like Hance Partners of Phoenix, AZ to Pixel Perfect from Australia, to iNKY Color from Ontario, Canada.
