How does Print on Demand work?

  1. Define your niche market, audience and product.
  2. Create your designs and set up your store.
  3. Find a print on demand supplier. At Prime, we like to discuss your products, vision, strategy and required service level agreements. 
  4. Then we'll set you up with a Prime account and seamlessly integrate your online store into our production workflow via an API. 
  5. You can then choose your products from our large selection of personalised gifts and set up your artwork.
  6. That's it! You're ready to go! 
  7. Start promoting your online store.
  8. Once your customer places an order on your website, our production kicks into action.
  9. Our workflow automatically redirects the order to the nearest production facility.
  10. We start to print your designs on your products within 24hrs.
  11. The product then goes through an intensive quality control process.
  12. Your product is packaged and delivered directly to your customer using your brand. 
  13. After a set period, we would like to get together again, see how we are doing, talk about product development, market & customer insight, and increase your basket value to maximise profits.
