Otta's take

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

Gelato’s printing software network allows creators to print and ship from hyperlocal locations. This in turn allows them to deliver products within less time, for less money, and with a much smaller carbon footprint.

Interestingly, Gelato is a printing platform with no printing hardware of its own. Rather, they partner with on-demand printing services all around the world, which their customers can access through the platform.

Though it may sound like quite a niche business model, the surge in e-commerce-driven creators means that the market is growing rapidly. Indeed the market for customised products is well on its way to reaching around $300 billion, and Gelato includes the likes of Wix and Canva among its customers.

The company has grown steadily since its 2007 launch, increasing its global footprint year after year. Future growth seems certain, as Gelato aims for further expansion in the US and Asia.
