The business of print on demand is booming and with no signs of slowing down it makes it the perfect business to get into. With print on demand you not only save on costs but also on space and storage, as all of your products will be printed in direct correlation with the demand for them, you will not be required to hold vast amounts of stock. In turn, if certain products of yours do not sell then you will not be left with surplus stock just sat in your chosen storage location.
So the first bonus for starting a print on demand business, as mentioned above, is the relatively low cost which comes with starting one up. Now, all businesses incur costs to begin with, however, with a print on demand business, it is likely that you will be purely selling your wares online via an e-commerce platform therefore you will not have to pay rent on any sort of brick and mortar space. This does mean that you will have to buy a domain and hosting for your online store most likely. An alternative to owning your own web-store/domain would be to use Etsy or another similar selling platform.
Moving on from this, I previously touched upon the positive of having no need for large quantities of stock, which is a huge bonus. Stock is not only costly in and of itself but you will also need to pay dividends for a large enough storage space for the goods. If you partner with print on demand suppliers such as Gift Flow, then not only will you have no need for large quantities of stock but you will also not have to worry about printing and fulfilment as Gift Flow will do all of this for you!
All of the above should offer a brief overview of the positives of going into the print on demand business, so do not hesitate to get into the business, especially if you are an artist or hobbyist looking to print unique designs onto usable products.
