Online printing startup Gogoprint comes to Singapore

Online printing startup Gogoprint comes to Singapore

Gogoprint, a startup that specializes in online printing, has launched in Singapore. Before Singapore, Gogoprint has opened offices in Bangkok, Thailand and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

According to Gogoprint, its mission is to disrupt and modernize the inefficient printing industry in Southeast Asia. Since launching in November 2015, Gogoprint has raised a mid-six figure U.S. dollar investment from OPG (Online Printing Group).

Gogoprint:

Gogoprint’s business proposition involves solving one of the printing industry’s biggest pain points - high fixed costs and requisite order volumes, particularly among small and medium sized businesses. It does this with its proprietary algorithmic software which manages and pools together small orders, and distributes the cost of printing. As a result, it is able to offer premium printing services at a competitive cost, enabling SMEs and startups to print their products such as business cards, digital booklets, leaflets, flyers, posters, gift vouchers, postcards and stickers more cost-effectively.

The market for online printing in Southeast Asia in 2016 was estimated at US$25 billion a year. In the 12 months since August 2016, Gogoprint has grown its revenues by over 500%; its number of customers by 400% to over 16,000 (including 10,000 in Thailand and 3,000 each in Singapore and Malaysia); and its employee headcount over 300% to 90 people (including 60 in Thailand, and 30 spread in Malaysia, also operating Singapore).

Gogoprint's clients are largely in the education, entertainment, healthcare, hospitality, travel, transportation, food and beverage, retail and manufacturing sectors. This includes the likes of Lazada, Booking.com, Jameson Whiskey, Accor Group, as well as the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore.

Apart from its growing geographic footprint, Gogoprint is looking to expand into multiple product categories including calendars, large-format printing, printed pens and flash drives.

Gogoprint’s Singapore office will be helmed by Laurent De Candido, Managing Director and co-founder at Gogoprint.

De Candido:

As more and more consumers get overflowed with online content, never before has it been more important for tangible marketing to attract consumers for brands to stay in people’s minds. Especially in Singapore, we see a lot of potential for more complex or purely promotional products. This gives us the right surge to capture the Southeast Asian online printing market, with Indonesia as a natural next destination.
