Printcious: Spreading festive joy still a possibility in 2020
Malaysian online DIY gift printing platform embraces and encourages new norm despite hard times.
In just a blink of an eye, the year-end and its festivities are upon us. To many it is a time when Christmas lists are drawn up and home decorations are bought to usher in the season for family and friends.
This year’s circumstances has made it difficult to shop with having to comply by standard operating procedures (SOP) and the social-distancing norm since COVID-19 hit. Recognising this and circumventing it, e-commerce website Printcious remains strong in its principle to spread joy through personalised gifts to make the year-end special.
Vincent Tong, Chief Executive Officer, Printcious Gifts says: “We are all about finding the right gifts. We position ourselves as the place you can come to for gift ideas without having to deal with the typical time-consuming and costly process.”
Printcious is not just about a gift, he adds, but a gift that was made right from their heart, with a personal and do-it-yourself (DIY) touch to it.
Offering home decorative items like throw pillows, and square or rectangle shaped canvas print of various sizes to hang on your wall; personalised gifts ranging from t-shirts, mugs, puzzles and the likes, Printcious has over 10,000 ready designs.
“Our website is not just for gift sourcing, really, but to present your personality and style when it comes to home decoration or even in your gift to your loved ones,” Tong adds.
An extensive list of options can be found on Printcious’ website with estimate prices ranging from RM15-RM350. Your gift options can be ordered and produced in three ways, namely:
>> Design your own: Add your own design/photo and text to be printed as-is.
>> Template based: Produced using the existing template designs online and are friendly for customers who are not familiar with designing. Just add the photo or text in the designated spots for a personalised feel.
>> Ready design: Gift ideas that already carry a design and does not really require customisation. Printcious still offers its online design tool should you change your mind about personalisation.
Taking into consideration the challenging times that companies facing currently, Tong offers small and medium enterprises (SME) Printcious’ services that cater to personalised corporate gifts.
“We also take in bulk orders and SMEs can leverage on that in providing little things that could boost sales and build or enhance their brand positions,” he added. Among the range of products that are available are mugs, lanyards, mousepads and button badges.
“Bulk-order customers are welcomed to add a touch of customisation and personalisation on their orders. Corporate firms and event planners are not limited to only printing merchandise in a single design, they can personalise each and every merchandise with a unique message or the recipient’s name.
“As an example, you can choose to print 100 throw pillows for your wedding. Each will bear individual guests’ names on it to commemorate the special day,” Tong cites.
Printcious assures and allays any worry over order deliveries. Its shipping partner Aramex has been carrying out this task perfectly within Malaysia, and around the globe.
“Should you have concerns that your order does not make it in time, we have enabled a self-collect option for customers who prefer to pick up the item personally,” Tong elaborates.
The firm was established in 2015 and is currently recognised as one of Malaysia’s largest customised and personalised gift printing suppliers. Catering to individual customers as well as in bulk for corporate firms, Printcious has delivered to customers in close to 100 countries, to date.
