What is POD (Print on Demand) Business Model and how it works

Print on demand business idea decoding by Mohammed Asif | Digital ILM

Imagine you have an idea for a cool design, like a picture or a slogan that you think would look great on a T-shirt or a mug. In the past, if you wanted to make those T-shirts or mugs, you would have to order a large number of them all at once from a factory. But what if you only wanted a few for yourself or your friends?

That’s where the print-on-demand business model comes in. With print-on-demand, you can create and sell custom-designed products without having to make a bunch of them in advance. Here’s how it works:

  1. First, you come up with a design or an idea for a product like a T-shirt, a mug, or a phone case.
  2. Instead of making a lot of them right away, you find a special company that offers print-on-demand services. These companies have machines and equipment to print your design on the products.
  3. You send your design to the print-on-demand company, and they print it on the products one by one, as they are ordered. So, if someone wants to buy a T-shirt with your design, the print-on-demand company will make just one T-shirt with your design and send it to that person.
  4. The print-on-demand company takes care of the manufacturing and shipping, so you don’t have to worry about those things. You can focus on creating and promoting your designs.
  5. Whenever someone buys a product with your design on it, the print-on-demand company will give you a portion of the money they make from selling it. This way, you can earn money from your creative ideas!

The print-on-demand business model is great because it allows people to turn their creativity into a business without having to spend a lot of money upfront. It’s like having your own custom-made products without the hassle of making and storing them yourself.

I hope that helps explain the concept of print-on-demand in a way that makes sense to you! If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
