What Is Print-on-Demand?

Print-on-Demand (POD) is the practice of advertising customized merchandise for sale on an online marketplace, but only printing the actual products when a sale is made. This method of selling apparel comes with quite a few benefits. First of all, there is no need to hold massive amounts of pre-printed inventory that will potentially not sell, which majorly cuts down on the amount of money you need to invest upfront when starting an apparel line.  Additionally, the entire production process can be automated and outsourced to a printing company. As a result, you can set up an online Print-on-Demand store on Shopify or one of the other eCommerce platforms with little to no upfront or ongoing costs, while never having to worry about the physical act of printing your products and mailing out all of your orders.

ShipDaddy is a prime Print-on-Demand partner!


Is Print-on-Demand Profitable?

By using a Print-on-Demand business model, your main job is to create and upload designs to your chosen store or marketplace and create your listings. When a sale is made through your online portal, it’s automatically ordered through your printing provider and shipped to your customer. Ultimately, you just need an internet connection, a laptop, and an eye for design to get your apparel company up and running if you partner with a Print-on-Demand company. Your designs can be something as simple as a text phrase with no graphics, or as complex as multiple high definition images (your company, your call!). Alternatively, you can always pay a designer on a site like Fiverr or Upwork to create designs for you if the creative side isn't your strong suit.

This method of doing business is truly game changing for eCom business owners - with the right Print-on-Demand fulfillment partner, you no longer have to desperately try and reach your shirt supplier located in another country, or spend countless hours printing shipping labels and going to and from the post office and your apparel supplier. When you consider the amount of time and headache you can save yourself by partnering with a company like ShipDaddy, while actually *growing* your profits, it's hard to imagine running a custom apparel eCommerce store any other way.


To succeed and become profitable with a Print-on-Demand drop shipping model, it's absolutely critical you select a partner that will help you attain the lowest possible cost of production.  Below is a comparison of how ShipDaddy stacks up against the other Print-on-Demand companies:

Print-on-Demand Products

There are truly thousands of different types of customizable Print-on-Demand merchandise to choose from. Even though a Print-on-Demand model is most closely associated with t-shirts, you can now print custom words and branding on just about any fabric or material under the sun.

^^Don't forget to check the ShipDaddy Merch while you're there!^^

Since T-shirts are one of the definite top sellers in the Print-on-Demand sphere, there is also the most competition in this sector of the marketplace. Branching off into some of the more niche Print-on-Demand products could be a great way to help your brand stand out from other similar competitors.

Here's some custom merchandise options (other than tees) that work great with a Print-on-Demand format: Bags & Accessories, Coffee Mugs/Cups, Prints/Posters, Mobile Phone Cases, Stickers, Cushions/Pillows, Towels, Shoes/Sandal + many more!

But How Can I Make Money With Print-on-Demand?

You can utilize Print-on-Demand services to boost your apparel business to the next level, but the key is picking the right method for you. It’s no secret that you’re going to maximize your Print-on-Demand profits by selecting a strategic partner that handles Print-on-Demand fulfillment at the lowest possible price so you maintain healthy margins.  Making the right choice early on is one of the most important decisions you will make for your brand, so choose carefully! In switching to a Print-on-Demand format, your primary responsibility becomes creating designs and uploading them to your eCommerce store and linking that to a fulfillment platform.


One of the most important things to remember as you browse Print-on-Demand websites and research how to best turn your designs into a profit churning eCommerce brand, is that you want a partner that will help you grow your business instead of just cash your check.
