What is Print-on-demand (POD) ?
Using print on demand networking lets product designers offer a unique, one of a kind product design that is printed when an order is received, allowing sales of singular or smaller quantities.
Embracing this type of product manufacturing and distribution creates an opportunity to supply customers with premium merchandise, combined with structured dependable delivery in a reasonable time frame.
Over the years print on demand has grown dramatically, using the latest technology to bring some amazing designs to everyday products!
Why purchase print-on-demand (POD) products?
Some shoppers might find the slightly higher price tag of some POD products disappointing. Cruising the never ending pages of products on Amazon/Ebay, while filtering the lowest price on the product desired, has created a discount focused purchasing approach.
If consumers are looking for a Walmart discount special type of product, then shoppers will probably skip POD products based on price alone, if shoppers are looking for unique designed products that not many others have with a slightly higher price tag, POD merchandise stores might get a special frequently used page bookmark.
- PRO's Vs CON's Purchasing Print on Demand Merchandise.

The higher price you pay for the product in my opinion, is for this small business hands on customer service.
