Value-added services

Print on Demond

Print-on-demand (POD) allows businesses to order print materials on an as-needed basis in a piecemeal fashion. It is a process in which you work with a supplier to customize white-label products with your own designs to sell them on a per-order basis under your own brand.

The Advantages of POD

  • Easy Set-Up: You don’t need to hire the best web designers to get your print-on-demand business up and running.
  • Low Startup Cost: With traditional businesses, you must have a good stock of cash to purchase inventory and get your store up and running.
  • No Inventory Management: Your supplier handles pretty much everything from order printing, packaging, and shipping which means you don’t need to handle any amount of inventory.
  • Ability to Customize: One of the biggest advantages of print-on-demand is that it gives you a chance to create and sell unique designs.
  • Scale & Test with No Risks: With print-on-demand, you aren’t directly involved in printing or production so there’s no major monetary investment from your side.
