A Low-Risk Way to Sell Custom Products
Physical products can be the perfect medium for monetising your creativity as an artist, writer, designer, or entrepreneur.
Although, if you go the conventional procedure of buying and holding your own products, you might be left with inventory that isn’t selling.
Impress Printers’ print-on-demand services offer another way to surpass the time, investment, and risk linked to managing inventory, letting you go from creating to selling custom products at a fraction of the cost. Contact us today!
What is “print on demand” and how does it work?
Print on demand is a process whereby you work with a supplier to customise white-label products (like sports hats or tote bags) with your own designs, to sell them on a per-order basis under your own brand. This would mean that you don’t pay for the product until after you’ve actually sold it, so there’s no need to buy in bulk or hold any inventory yourself.
Additionally, with print-on-demand services, printing and shipping is handled by your supplier. Once you’ve set everything up, it only takes a few clicks to fulfil an order once you’ve made a sale.
Using print-on-demand services:
- Test a business idea or new product line for an existing business void of the risks that come with buying inventory.
- Monetise an audience you have established. Printing on demand is an ideal option if you’re a YouTuber, cartoonist, or social media influencer who wants to create content.
- Create original products for a niche of customers. For example, apparel for people who are passionate about gaming.
- Easily print one-off items — books, shoes, bags, wall art, phone cases, clocks, laptop skins, mugs, and so much more. You can send these as gifts or keep them for yourself and your team.
- Create products quickly:Once you have the design, you can create the product and put it up for sale in minutes.
- Shipping is taken care of: Shipping and fulfillment out of your hands and in your supplier’s. After the sale, you’re just responsible for customer service.
- Low investment, lower risk:Since you’re not physically holding any inventory, it’s easier to add or remove products, test ideas, or pivot your approach.
