Printify, a leading print-on-demand network connecting merchants with print providers, now offers their customers direct access to millions of Shutterstock images and editing tools. The best part? The Printify engineering team used Shutterstock UI—an intuitive tool for developers—to integrate in just two days and meet a tight deadline. Now, merchants can quickly search beautiful images right from within Printify and create stunning products that increase engagement and boost sales. Here’s the full story.
But how could Printify’s engineering team give their merchants access to inspiring content and image editing tools, with few backend resources?
“Our team had a very tight deadline to meet and limited resources, and it was clear that Shutterstock UI was an impressive tool that could really speed up the integration process,” said Francois.
“The Shutterstock Editor is a great benefit to our merchants,” said Francois. “It’s something they’ve been requesting since day one.”
“Shutterstock UI was instrumental because there weren’t any limitations,” said Francois.
