Print on demand is exactly what it sounds like. The printed product does not exist in a printed form until it has been ordered and paid for.
This obviously does away with the risk associated with having multiple products in multiple variances, such as size, colour etc. printed and delivered before demand for the product has been identified or a sale is made.
One of the downsides of print on demand is that the cost of printing, packaging and posting a single item is much higher than if higher volumes were ordered through a traditional manufacturer, therefore profit per item is much lower. The cost to print and deliver a one-off item will be much higher than what a department store will be able to acquire, however, as the buyer is receiving a unique, personalised, niche or exclusive product, the perceived value can be much higher.
Print on demand facilitates market testing with very low financial commitment.
