*Updated Aug 22, 2022.

Some providers, like Printful, Shirtee, Gelato, require exact key for printarea. So you might need to write correct key as the printarea name to send orders to fulfill.
This article shows which providers require exact printarea keys, and how to find the keys.

We took the keys from the provider's API and list down here for sellers to look up easier. Providers can change the keys anytime without notices, so Teeinblue does NOT take any responsibility for the accuracy of the data. If any key is incorrect, please contact support of the provider to get the new data.
