Print On Demand: Sell customized products online at low risk

Learn what POD is and how to use it for your business.

Having your designs printed on physical items can really help enhance the artwork. Many designers selling their artwork choose to print their designs on items such as mug, t-shirt, and notebooks.

But going into business and investing in an inventory can be a pricey affair. It can also be risky if your products don’t sell. Therefor many designers choose to use the Print On Demand business-model as an alternative way to sell products online.

What is Print on Demand (POD)?

Print on Demand (POD) is a print-to-order service in which designers work together with printing suppliers to produce white-label products, such as t-shirts or coffee mugs, with their work printed on it. These products are sold on a per-order basis, which means that the designer only pays after the order has been placed, printed, and shipped to the customer.

The only thing you need to do as a designer to sell your work on Print on Demand, is to provide the design, and everything thereafter (such as printing and shipping) is handled by the printing supplier.

This is a great way for digital designers to sell their work and earn money without having to invest time and money into the printing process.

How to sell with Print on Demand sites

Selling with Print on Demand is easy; all you need to do is open a shop on a Print on Demand website, upload the design, select which type of white-label products you want the design to be available in, and you’re product is available for sale. The perk with this is that you can have your product for sale within minutes.

There are multiple Print on Demand sites out there. A few of the most popular ones are RedBubble, Amazon Merch, Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing, Zazzle, Printify, Printful and many more.

Selling on Print on Demand site can be a great way if you want to:

  • Test out a new business idea. As it is low risk, it doesn’t matter if your business idea doesn’t takeoff.
  • Target a specific audience. If you have your own social media fan base, and want to start selling your own merch, or if you want to target very niche customer groups.
  • Make quick sales. As it is very easy to set up new products, you can experiment to see which types of designs sell better. Is it better to print it on a book, t-shirt, cap, coffee mug, tote bag, notebook, phone case, or wall art?
