What is print-on-demand?
Print-on-demand is an order fulfillment method where items are printed as soon as an order is made, often without minimum order volume. The term is often combined with drop shipping to describe a service where items are printed to order and shipped directly from the manufacturer to the buyer on behalf of the customer selling the goods.

Here's how Printful does it

Print-on-demand vs wholesale / bulk orders

Most retail businesses make money from buying products in bulk (at wholesale prices) and selling them at higher prices in smaller volumes. But there's a good reason print-on-demand fulfillment is becoming more and more popular.
