Connect your projects to our world class print on-demand services with one of our Print APIs

An API For Any Size Business

Whether you’re a small business needing reliable, on-demand printing with no minimums or a large business looking to scale, we’ve built two API options that meet your printing and shipping needs. With both our self-service and custom API, your customers’ print requests go directly to our RPI print locations then we drop-ship directly to your customer’s address.

Self Service API

With standardized products, quick set-up, and low complexity, this self-service API integrates with your ecommerce site without fees, volume requirements, or complex configurations. It combines powerful printing, shipping, and order-fulfillment infrastructure with an API that’s RESTful, over HTTPS, and JSON/XML formatted. Currently available for US shipping only.

Custom API

For scaling businesses with customized product requirements, large order volumes, and global needs, this custom API gives you the highest level of flexibility. It enables large-scale print production for enterprises that sell their printed products online to customers globally.

Using Blurbs new Self Service API, We Can Books gives users the ability to create heirloom-quality, one-of-a-kind books that children will want to open again and again.
