Cairo-based on-demand printing services platform PrintX has raised $150,000 investment, the startup told MENAbytes today. The investment came from a Saudi-based angel investor Mohamed Elbazz.
Founded in 2017 by Abdelrhman Gaber, Mostafa Ali and Ahmed Shahin, PrintX (being built – not available) has been providing different printing and production (flags, booths, etc.) services mostly to businesses using its offline setup. The startup that was using its website to maintain its online presence only plans to use the investment to launch an online platform that will offer different on-demand printing services to both individuals and businesses.
The users will be able to preview the designs on different products (t-shirts, mugs, etc.) before ordering them. They will also be able to able to track their orders on the platform, PrintX’s co-founder and CEO Abdelrahman Gaber told MENAbytes.
The startup will also continue to use their offline model as well for businesses that according to Abdelrahman has been doing fairly well.
PrintX that has its own printing press to support its business will use a part of investment to first expand its services all over Egypt. They want businesses all over Egypt to be able to order printing services from PrintX. The startup will print the ordered products in Cairo and ship them all over the country.
PrintX also has plans to expand to Saudi next year.
