Print on Demand (POD) – What You Need To Know

What is Print on Demand?

Print on demand (POD) is a method in which items are only produced after a customer places an order. This method eliminates the need for you to hold large inventories.

The process of POD apparel begins with the creation of a design, which can be created using tools like Adobe Illustrator, Canva, or other design editing tools. The design is then uploaded to a POD provider, where customers can purchase the item with the design. Once an order is placed, the POD provider then produces and ships the item directly to the customer.

This method is popular among small business owners and independent designers, as it allows them to sell clothing items without the need for a large initial investment. It also allows for flexibility in the designs offered, as new designs can be added or removed as needed.

POD apparel is also a bit more environmentally friendly as it reduces waste by only producing what is needed.

However, it should be noted that POD apparel is often more expensive than mass-produced clothing due to the cost of producing individual items. Additionally, the quality of POD apparel can vary depending on the materials and printing methods used.

Print on demand is the perfect option for designers or for anyone trying to create a business.
