So you’ve decided to try your hand at a Print on Demand business and need a little direction. You probably already decided that you want to start out in this industry by putting your designs on products in a Print on Demand Marketplace that is already established, rather than starting your own brand or online store.

We’ve compiled a list of Print on Demand Marketplaces for you to join and start submitting your designs to. You can submit designs to multiple and cover more basis! It can be time-consuming, but you never know which platform your design could go viral on.

(If you have no idea what we are talking about, click here to learn more about Print on Demand.)

What is a Print on Demand Marketplace

A Print on Demand marketplace is a website that provides everything for you; the products as well as the marketplace with an established customer base to put your designs in front of. All you have to do is add your design, pick the products you want it on, set your royalty rate, add a few keywords and you are off to the races.

On the other hand, a Print on Demand supplier is a website/company that you integrate with your own e-commerce store. Whether that be through Shopify, WooCommerce, Amazon, Etsy or any one of the other options available to you. You then add your designs to the products that the company supplies and they will be listed in your store.

(If you want to start your own brand or e-commerce store, find our full list of Print on Demand suppliers here.)

We’ve seen a lot of blog posts all over the internet with lists of Print on Demand websites, telling their audience that it’s easy to make money.

Running a successful Print on Demand business is a simple process, but it takes time and effort. Sure, you could get lucky and design a winning product right off the bat, but more likely, it’s a slow build of products that sell consistently that will make you the big bucks. This is not a get quick rich scheme.

Other posts online also often mix the two different types of Print on Demand websites together, suppliers and marketplaces. The two are both under the umbrella of Print on Demand but make no mistake, they are not the same. 

This post is only a list of Print on Demand marketplaces.

More on Print on Demand Marketplaces

 

When selecting a Print on Demand marketplace to upload your designs to it’s a good idea to consider what sells well on each site. What kind of designs, and products, are the customers looking for on each platform?

In the list above we mentioned for example that Zazzle (the platform that we do well on) does really well with customizable items, monogrammed designs and paper products, such as invitations, greeting and greeting cards.

RedBubble, on the other hand, sells cool graphic art on products like shirts and stickers.

Society6 does well with home decor items with clean-cut graphics with a contemporary feel to them.

Each site has it’s own unique strengths, so take another look through each one to see what might work best for you.

And again, it’s beneficial to upload your designs to multiple platforms if you have the time to do so.
