Due to their minimal up-front investment costs, zero need for on-hand inventory, and little to no overhead costs, print-on-demand businesses are becoming increasingly popular.
Whether you’re a designer looking to sell your art, a musician looking to sell custom merch, an artist looking for new mediums on which you can share your masterpieces, or an aspiring e-commerce entrepreneur, print-on-demand (POD) businesses are appealing models. Not only are they relatively simple to launch but they are also easy to manage.
With POD, online entrepreneurs partner with POD drop-shipping businesses to design, sell, and ship custom items. From apparel and swag to custom stickers, posters, and gift wrap, the options for print-on-demand are virtually endless. While the business owners (online sellers and retailers) are responsible for providing the design for these items and listing them to a sales channel, POD partners provide a catalog of items from which to choose, many offer a mockup generator for custom designs. Once an order is placed on the e-commerce website, the POD partner handles manufacturing, order fulfillment, and drop-shipping direct to the customer.
POD is incredibly useful for businesses of all stages, ranging from those who are just learning how to launch an e-commerce business to those with existing online stores who are looking to test new ideas.
