UPS Store Launches Online Print Platform

(January 2015) posted on Wed Jan 28, 2015 on Big Picture

Allows users to upload, customize, and configure printed materials.

The UPS Store has launched an online printing platform that will allow customers to upload or create their own printed products.

Powered by PrintSites, the platform offers custom, pre-formatted templates for products such as business cards, flyers, postcards, banners, envelopes, and greeting cards, as well as a document builder where users can configure files for production, including wide-format options.

Select products may be printed at The UPS Store’s 4400-plus locations and picked up the same day.


Blog Publisher’s comment:

I’ve visited a bunch of UPS Stores in several different metro areas in the U.S., and I’ve yet to find even one that was equipped with wide-format printing/copying equipment.  (Maybe they keep their wide-format equipment in the back room?)
