What is Print On Demand?

Print on demand, an innovative and ecological model: discover print on demand with TPOP.

Print on demand: quick and easy, environmentally friendly customised products delivered worldwide.

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

Print On Demand, environmentally friendly, from Europe to the world.
  1. You create your online sales site
  2. The customer visits your site
  3. He orders one or more items
  4. 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:

Graphic designers, illustrators and other self-employed workers

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.

Artists who already have a Fanbase

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).

Crowdfunding campaigns

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.

Companies, associations and communities

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:

Time savings

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.

💰
Saving money

Digital printing and sublimation require expensive equipment, and this type of investment may not be viable for self-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 connection.

🍀
Minimal risk

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.

🌎
Real environmental benefits

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?

1. Create your account on our platform

We know you like soft solutions for your budget, which is exactly why our application is completely free, with no fees or subscriptions.

2. Choosing the products you want to sell

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.

3. Sending your visuals

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.

4. Automatic creation of products in your store by our print on demand platform

This can be linked to different platforms such as Shopify, Etsy and WooCommerce.

The list of integrations available through our print on demand platform can be found here.

No online shop? No problem! You can also place your orders manually on our application.

5. 1st order from a customer on your store (bravo!)

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.

Example: you choose to create a t-shirt that you will sell for €30 on your website and charge your customers €3 for shipping.

A customer buys this t-shirt on your website, he pays you directly, on your bank account or via Paypal the sum of 30 + 3 = 33 €.

On our side, when your order goes into production, we will charge you €12.50 + 3.95 for delivery, i.e. €16.45.

This means that you 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 is the best print-on-demand solution, and we say that with complete objectivity (hahum). Why do we say that?
First of all, 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 to experience an easy and intuitive Print on Demand.
Today, we are proud to say that this challenge 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.
