Remember the last time you got a flyer or a tech manual printed in bulk? You wished to circulate those through your customers and business network, but how many of those are still lying with you? Quite often, you end up ordering large quantities of documents for distribution but find yourself stuck with copies that are not of any use anymore; this leads to excess inventory and loss of money, among other things.
But we have just the solution for you to free yourself of these challenges: Print-on-demand (POD). But what exactly is it?
Print-on-demand is a printing service model where you can get your documents printed as and when you need them. You need not print flyers, cards, brochures, etc., in bulk and store them. Such a model entails numerous advantages, which we shall see later in the blog. For service providers, too, it is a favorable model as they need not invest in buying large quantities of raw material and costly equipment as POD gives the option of printing products only when the orders come in.
What can be printed on demand?

Advantages of Print on Demand
POD brings value to service providers and their customers alike. Given its advantages, it is quickly being adopted across the board.
Reduce inventory costs: You need not end up with a massive inventory of projects that may or may not sell. You only print them ‘on demand’; this can help you save unnecessary losses and storage space.
Provide higher quality with customization: POD lets you offer customized messages to your customers. Vary your designs and text for each of your customers and reap the benefits of customization.
Reduce environmental harm: POD helps to cut back on waste. Service providers need to print only the demanded quantity of prints and need not bother stacking inventory.
Improve your profits: Printing unnecessary items leads to added expense and cuts in on your cash flow. With POD, you need not print large quantities of documents for long-term distribution. You can focus only on the immediate distribution requirement and print material only when the demand arises.
Get flexible: Over time, printing preferences from customers may change. With POD, you can easily adapt to the market changes quickly and avoid being outpaced.
