What is Gelato?
Gelato offers a global print-on-demand (POD) solution for companies who want to sell print products to their end-customers. We serve both small entrepreneurs who want to launch their online store as well as large global companies such as Optimalprint, Canva and Mapiful.
The power of our solution is our network of 100+ print and 30+ logistics partners which allows us to produce locally in 30 countries worldwide and ship to 200+ countries and territories so that you can reach more than 5 billion potential customers on the planet with turnaround times of 72 hours for most products and locations.
Around 95% of our orders are produced locally, thus reducing carbon emissions!
We automatically route orders using an advanced algorithm, taking into account multiple factors. Most of the times, the algorithm chooses the closest print partner to the shipping location, but rarely it will be routed to a print partner in another country and shipped internationally.
How do I sign up?
You can sign up for a free account (no subscription fees - you only pay for the orders you place) in minutes - just visit https://www.gelato.com/ and click on “Get Started”.

What products do you offer? And how much does it cost to produce and ship them?
Once you have an account, you can explore our extensive Product Catalogue. We offer thousands of products including posters, frames, canvases, mugs, t-shirts, hoodies, and much more!
We constantly expand our offering based on our customers' feedback. If you can't find what you are looking for, please let us know.
