Print on Demand is a 100% automated sales system that has experienced incredible (and justified) growth over the last ten years.
As a sub-domain of Dropshipping, Print on Demand allows you to monetize and distribute your creations by affixing them to physical products of all kinds, from textiles (t-shirts, sweaters, etc.) to various accessories (water bottles, mugs, etc.).
The great thing about this business model? No need to complicate your life with inventory management and product shipping. All products are printed and shipped from us to your customer under your brand, without you having to store anything, so there's no upfront investment or financial risk on your end.
Life is beautiful.
A simple to understand model
- You create your online sales site
- The customer visits your site
- He orders one or more items
- We print and ship his order, on your behalf
Who is Print On Demand for?
Print on Demand is a business model that can be extremely interesting for a variety of profiles:
With some creative inspiration or marketing talent, you want to put your visuals on products to monetize your business? The POD is an excellent choice.
You are an influencer, a Youtuber or an author, and you want to take advantage of your popularity and offer your audience the possibility to show their support through the purchase of merchandising (also called derivative products).
You want to launch a crowdfunding campaign for your project? It is often necessary to set up counterparts, t-shirts, mugs etc. With print on demand, there is no need to pay in advance or manage stock, it's magic.
At the head of a professional activity, you wish to make team-building (team building in French) and to gather your collaborators around colors and the global image of your company thanks to personalized products.
With Print on Demand, whatever your situation, creating your brand or launching your product line has never been easier or more accessible.
Why Print On Demand?
It is a system that has many advantages. Let's review them together right now:
We know that time is a precious resource for any designer. Print On Demand allows you to skip the chores of production, logistics, packaging and shipping of your orders, allowing you to spend more time on your design and marketing strategy.
Digital printing and sublimation require expensive equipment, and this type of investment may not be viable for self-employed entrepreneurs and designers. Fortunately, all these machines are already here, ready to be launched for the printing of your fabulous products, while you, on your side, will only need a computer and an internet Login .
With the Print On Demand as its name suggests, your products will be manufactured according to the demand of your customers; thus, without material stock, no risk of unsold products.
This is also what makes this system a true friend of the planet, as it differs from the highly polluting mass production.
In addition, we do our best to offer the most environmentally friendly service, offering clean products and plastic-free shipping.
There are many good reasons to embark on the crazy Print on Demand adventure. However, there is no need to rush into it: first of all, let's take a look at the process to follow to put your first item on sale.
Print On Demand, yes, but how does it work?
We know you like soft solutions for your budget, which is exactly why our application is completely free, with no fees or subscriptions.
Our catalog is full of high quality, eco-friendly gems to boot.
From t-shirts to mugs to pillows and personalized covers, it's up to you to select which products will be the most appropriate to accompany your designs and represent your brand.
Congratulations, your visuals are ready! They are beautiful. Now, it's time to load them in 1 click on the page of our site provided for this purpose.
This can be linked to various platforms such as Shopify, Etsy and WooCommerce, or of course to your TPOP store (offered when you create your account).
The list of integrations available through our print on demand platform can be found here.
No online store? No problem, we've got it for you: TPOP can set up your store in just a few minutes, free of charge.
Like a traditional order, you receive directly the amount paid by the customer defined for the product sold. On our side, we get notified about the order to be printed, packed and shipped. You will only be invoiced when the order has gone into production in our workshop, at which point you will be left with the nice margin you had previously planned on this item.
You choose to create a t-shirt that you'll sell for €30 on your website and charge your customers €3 for shipping.
A customer buys this t-shirt on your site, and pays you directly, into your bank account or via Paypal, the sum of 30 + 3 = 33 €.
For our part, when your order goes into production, we will invoice you for this t-shirt at 12.50 € + 3.95 for delivery, i.e. 16.45 €.
You therefore make a margin (final profit) of 33 - 16.45 = 16.55 € on this sale.
That's it. You don't have to do anything else. Piece of cake, right?
Okay, but why choose TPOP?
TPOP represents the best print-on-demand solution, and we say that with complete objectivity (hahum).
First and foremost for our platform and its ease of use.
This was one of our bets when we designed our platform; to offer our users the possibility of experiencing an easy and intuitive Print on Demand.
Today, it is with great pride that we can say that this bet has been met.
When we launched TPOP, one of our other goals was to provide a top-notch service, both in terms ofprinting and technical support. We wanted to set the record straight: just because a system is automated doesn't mean it's devoid of humanity and expertise. Here again, we've obviously proven ourselves: our service is fast (validation and printing of your order in 3 days on average), our technical support is highly available and our printing is of high quality.
TPOP is also a company that has placed the environment at the heart of its concerns since day 1: not because it is good for the image, but because this issue is really important to the team. So we offer a wide range of eco-responsible and ethical products, in line with our values.
Similarly, we are the forerunners in the field of zero plastic: our packaging is guaranteed zero plastic, from the adhesive to the cardboard envelopes, 100% recycled and recyclable.
Finally, there are many branding (i.e. personalisation) options available to you, most of which are completely free of charge; from personalised packing slips, to your logo on the parcels, to inserts lovingly placed by our team in your packages, there are many ways to show your customers that you are bending over backwards for their benefit.
How does it work in practice to add a shop?
Once you've created your TPOP account, if you already have an existing store, you can easily add it, whether it's Shopify, Etsy or WooCommerce.
In just a few clicks, your shop will be synchronized with your TPOP account.
You'll then be able to easily create new products, thanks to our magical customization tool: create your products in just a few minutes.
From now on, when an order is placed on your store, TPOP will take care of production and shipping: that's the magic of print-on-demand by TPOP.
Are you really offering a free store?
We offer you, free of charge, an online sales store - YOUR sales store. It's super-optimized and extremely easy to use.
How much does print-on-demand cost?
Our print on demand platform is completely free to use. No upfront costs, no minimums or monthly fees.
You will only be charged when we ship a product created by our platform, which you have sold on your shop.
What are the shipping times?
The shipping times are short: from the moment the order is placed, the order is dispatched within 48 hours on average. It is then delivered quickly to your customer: we work with the best transporters.
How often are new products added?
Our product catalogue is constantly evolving. The main feature for a product to be added is its quality: we only use ethically produced, responsible products with the best possible design criteria.
Where can I ship to?
Anywhere. We ship to your customers all over the world: internationalize your brand, we'll deliver your beautiful orders to any destination.
Our delivery rates are the lowest in the print on demand market, despite a top quality and carbon neutral delivery service.
You seem charmed, or at least we hope so.
