Print on demand is a way for people to sell products without them existing beforehand. Sounds weird right? It is, until you see how it works. There are several print on demand companies out there that allow you to put any image, (aka your design), onto things like t-shirts, hoodies, coffee mugs, posters, pillow cases and even necklaces.
The way print on demand works is you come up with a design, then you upload it to the print on demand company. They will then take your image and superimpose it over a black product. So say you have an idea for a funny coffee mug that says “Good Morning I See The Assassins Have Failed”. You can put that onto a product and sell it on places like Etsy if you wanted.
So who can you use to provide the products, take the orders, print them and then ship them? Well one of my favorite places to do this is a company called Gearbubble. They allow anyone to upload an image, select the product they want to show it on and then sell it right on their site.
I’ve personally sold hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of products using them. But you don’t have to be a big seller like me to succeed with print on demand. You can start small and use it as a “side hustle” to get going.
There’s two basic aspects to the print on demand business that you need to consider. The first is the product and the second is how you can get people to see your products. The first can be handled by companies like Gearbubble. The second means you can run ads on Facebook™ to show off the products you want to sell.
Print on demand is a world that I’ve been in for years now and really enjoy it. It’s so cool to see people actually buy your designs when in reality they started off only existing in your head.
