The five basic types of print shop names

Before you start brainstorming name ideas for your print shop, you should know business names generally fall into five different categories. Below, we explain what these categories are and what sets them apart from each other.

Unique names can help make your business memorable and appealing. They often convey vivid imagery or mood and make a lasting impression on your target audience.

Modern names are trendy, fresh, and can help you stay front of mind with your audience. They're often inspired by what's current or popular, so they're great for trendsetting businesses.

Quirky names allow you to differentiate your business from competitors by using unusual and unconventional words. Because quirky names can help convey specific key concepts and values, they're a great way to distinguish your brand.

Dependable print shop names have a way of getting right to the point and establishing trust. Customers will think of your brand as a reliable business that can always be counted on to meet their needs.

Creative names are memorable and can help you stand out from other businesses in the same niche. They allow you to connect with your audience on a more personal level and establish an emotional connection.

How to choose the best print shop name

As you begin brainstorming business names, keep the following best practices in mind.

Keep your company name simple, catchy, and brandable.

If you already have a name for your print shop in mind, ask yourself "Why this one?" Ideally, you want your business name to be short and catchy so it's easy for customers to remember. It's also a good idea to use basic spelling and avoid acronyms or abbreviations.

Try to:

Limit your print shop name to 10-15 characters

Stay away from slang words

Make sure spelling is easy

Keeping your business name simple also makes it easier for customers to find you in Google search results or social media.

Avoid hyphens and numbers

People misspell things all the time. While you can't change this, you can reduce the odds of it happening to your print shop name by avoiding hyphens, numbers, and other tricky spelling. For example, using "2" in place of "to" could confuse people searching for your business online. This is also a consideration when finding a domain name, which we'll cover a little later.

Avoiding symbols and weird characters can help make it easier for your audience to find you, which is extremely important in the early days of building a brand.

You should stay away from:

Using numbers and words together

Spelling mistakes

Colloquialisms

Doubled letters in combined words

Incorporate SEO keywords into your print shop name, if possible.

If you want to make your business name search engine friendly, try to include a relevant keyword in it, like "tennis" or "candles." Not only will this give potential customers more context about what your business is about, but it can also improve your chances of ranking well in Google search results.

Get creative with the words you use for your business name. A good strategy is to create a list of broad keywords that describe your products, then add a branded term. You can combine and rearrange terms in different ways to see what works best.

Consider using the formula [brand name] + [broad keyword] = [business name]:

Holistic + apparel = Holistic Apparel

Dean's + drones = Dean's Drones or Drones By Dean

Cosmos + cosmetics = Cosmos Cosmetics

One to two keywords are enough in your print shop name. Any more and it may seem annoying to potential customers

Use a business name generator for inspiration

If you're having trouble coming up with an original name for your business, try using Shopify’s free business name generator for inspiration. All you have to do is scroll to the top of this page, enter your keywords, and we'll generate hundreds of print shop name ideas.

After picking your business name, the next step is setting up your website so people can find you. You'll need a domain name checker for this, which can inform you if a domain has already been registered. Using the Domain Name Generator from Shopify can help you check domain name availability in just a few clicks.

Before you register a domain name, you'll need to make sure that it isn't already taken. Here are three ways to check:

  • Run a trademark search on USPTO.gov, which is a trademark database, to see if the name is trademarked
  • Check social media platforms, like Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok to make sure you can create your accounts in the future
  • Search on Google to check if your brand name is associated with another business

The .com extension is the most widely used domain extension on the Internet. It's easy to remember and to type as most smartphone keyboards have a dedicated .com key. It's more expensive to get a .com domain than a country code top-level domain (ccTLD) like .ca or .uk, so if you're a local business, it might not make sense for you to purchase this type of TLD.

.[country]:

If you sell only to one country this option makes it clear to your audience

.baby:

If you sell baby clothes and accessories you can try this domain extension

.makeup:

If you are a cosmetics brand this TLD is a great differentiator for your business

.bike:

If you sell bicycle-related stock this is the ideal way to let your audience know

Alternatively, if you operate your print shop name solely in one country, like Ireland or India, you can use a country code TLD to highlight this about your business. It can help build trust with your audience and rank faster on search engines in this locale.

What if your desired domain name is already taken?

It's possible that the ideal domain name for your print shop has already been taken. You have a few options in that case:

Buy it from the current owner

Your domain could be owned by a domain flipper (someone who buys domains with the aim to sell them to companies). If this is the case, reach out to the owner and open a line of communication to buy it from them. You can use the WHOIS platform to view their contact details. Be sure to have a budget in mind as this can get quite expensive.

Choose an alternative

List new name ideas that build on your current one. Try to find a new word or combination of words that makes your brand name easier to remember or find online. In addition, you might want to choose a ccTLD based on where you do business—it can be city-specific (.seattle, .paris) or country-specific (.ie, .fr). You can use this to target people in specific locations, while also benefiting from a boost in your search ranking in that locale.

Try an alternative TLD

Consider an alternative TLD if you can't have the .com version. Generic TLDs like .store or .shop are great for ecommerce related websites as they tell visitors exactly what you offer before they even visit your site.

Look up trending TLDs across the globe, through websites like Namestat, to discover all your options quickly. Also make sure to do a background check on a domain before you buy it by using a service like Spamhaus. They will tell you if there was any suspicious activity in the past on the domain.

How to purchase your domain name

Shopify gives you the opportunity to register a custom domain at any stage of your entrepreneurial journey. Our process is simple to follow and your domain will automatically be renewed every year so you never lose your domain to someone else.

When you launch a store on Shopify, you automatically get an auto-generated free domain name: [yourstore].myshopify.com. This allows you to spend your valuable time designing an engaging website for you print shop and building marketing campaigns without having to worry about buying a custom domain.

Take advantage of your print shop name

Your business name is more than your domain name or social media accounts. It's how you define your brand and how you present yourself to the world.

Your print shop name doesn't need to be overly clever in order to be perfect. Instead, choose a name that’s easy to pronounce and remember, and one that sounds good when it's said out loud. Your goal is to create a name that customers remember and can identify quickly. This will increase your company's visibility and profits.

Extra tips to remember when choosing your print shop name

Here are a few more pointers to consider as you decide your business name

  • Minimize the use of bland or outdated words so that customers can be excited about your print shop
  • Relieve customer frustrations by using the simplest spelling possible
  • Register your domain name early so no one else can take it
  • Incorporate your USP as part of your business name
  • Avoid overly ambiguous words that people have trouble remembering
  • Use different spellings of common words. Instead of Fiver, consider Fiverr
  • Keep your name realistic so people are more inclined to remember it
  • Stay away from names that are already in use as a trademark issue may arise in the future
  • Don't use the name of your product or service as your business name
  • Always ask for feedback on your chosen business name before you commit to ensure you haven't missed an alternative meaning
