Choosing print-on-demand

Print-on-demand (or POD for short) is the sweet spot of ecommerce fulfillment.

Get all of the credit and profit without the trouble of: 

  • Juggling different suppliers and fulfillment locations
  • Spending money on equipment and production employees
  • Doing the actual work of printing, packing, and shipping

Companies like Printful and Spring (previously Teespring) do all of these and more.
