Integrated Print on Demand Solution

Integrated Print on Demand Solution

With demand growing exponentially every day, there has never been a better time to become part of the print on demand (PoD) and direct to garment (DtG) industries. Though creating and selling customised products in this way offers many advantages over more traditional methods, it still involves a lot of hard work and the process can be frustratingly fragmented.

Wouldn't it be great if there were a solution that allowed you to manage every aspect of your merchandising factory in real-time, 24 hours a day from any internet-enabled device? Well, there is! Welcome to The Brick Factory.

The Brick Factory is a cloud portal that has been designed and developed by Brickweb for the PoD and DtG industries. A revolutionary business automation tool, The Brick Factory enables users to create products and manage their channel sales from one simple, secure and ultra-powerful control centre.

Let's take a look at some of the key features of The Brick Factory.

Create & Design.
As well as adding your own products, you can integrate The Brick Factory with an array of suppliers' databases and inventories, giving you the choice of literally thousands of different products with which to populate your store. Then comes the fun part: customisation!

Using the sleek, powerful and intuitive Design Studio module included with The Brick Factory, either you or your customers can create an infinite variety of custom merchandise from clothing to a host of accessories for DtG, screen printing, embroidery and sublimation printing.

Any design can be rapidly uploaded before being edited in countless different ways from scaling and tilting to selecting the opaqueness. There is also the potential to add text in a variety of fonts, shapes and formats. The Design Module will offer smart hints with regard to image quality, area and size, alerting the user to any potential problems. Once uploaded, the designs are automatically stored for future re-use and can then be applied to any other products.

Each design can be instantly previewed as a downloadable mock-up. The advanced system creates an image that looks exactly like a high-definition photograph of the finished item, complete with highlights, shadows, realistic colours and even garment creases.

Business Process Automation.
At the heart of The Brick Factory is a comprehensive order processing system that provides custom workflows for each and every product and process type, with the key information displayed on a custom factory dashboard. In addition to displaying crucial information about order processing statistics and progress, the dashboard also provides alerts to any critical issues that require attention.

When a new order is received, the system automatically checks for product availability and orders more products from the supplier if necessary. The products in the order are then picked, scanned and individually placed into their corresponding workflow. When completed, the order is automatically picked and packed before being drop-shipped to your customer. This fast, reliable method of business automation delivers dramatic cost-savings as well as freeing up plenty of extra time to focus on the core needs of your operation.

Drop Shipping.
With The Brick Factory, every dispatch can be uniquely personalised. At the design stage, customers can choose to add their own bespoke brand labels to their chosen products in any position. There is also the ability to print swing tags emblazoned with customers' brand logos, adding a professional finishing touch. Each user can easily brand delivery notes, packing slips and parcel stickers.

The Brick Factory can be seamlessly integrated with a variety of different stores and platforms. With more currently in development and coming soon, these integrations include:

  • E-Commerce Platforms. Shopify, Etsy, WordPress, WooCommerce, TikTok, Amazon, eBay, Squarespace, WIX, BigCommerce, Weebly, Big Cartel, Magento, NOTHS, 3DCart. Our API/CSV solution also allows integration with unique custom stores.
