Three major parameters have to be considered while you are researching for the right web-to-print software for your business.

It will give them a better idea about your business objectives and the products you are willing to sell. You can also note down your specific requirements and provide them to the developers.
Check the storefront design
Web-to-print stores are usually designed based on the templates that are available in the storefront software. These templates are then customized according to company’s colours, images, logos as well as product descriptions. While checking the storefront design, make sure that any of the templates do not limit the functionality of software or affect the design range. Check with the developers if the templates will allow you to alter the back end code if the need be.
Launch the store
Last but not the least; you can launch your store with the help of service providers. Some companies that sell web-to-print storefronts offer hosting servers and domain names as well. We also do. But If this facility is not offered, you might have to buy a domain name and a server for hosting your web-to-print store.
