Print On Demand

Print On Demand Courses

Online Marketplaces for Print On Demand

  • Amazon – Marketplace to sell eBooks and any kind of physical product.
  • eBay – Marketplace known for its product auctions, but you can also sell products at a set price.
  • Etsy – Marketplace to sell handmade products, vintage products, print on demand products, informational products, and craft supplies.

Print On Demand/FBA Suppliers

  • Gearbubble – This is my first and main supplier. All of my mug and travel mug sales go through them. They are constantly improving and I’ve been very pleased with the quality and shipping times over the years.
  • Printful – This is a more expensive print-on-demand supplier, but they do have a lot of customization options.
  • Printify – This seller is generally less expensive than Printful, but they work with a variety of suppliers through their portal and some are better than others. I currently use them for t-shirts and zipper bags.
  • Teelaunch – This seller is well priced, has good quality, and ships out quickly. I use them for laser engraved tumblers – 20oz/30oz regular tumblers, and 32oz water bottle tumblers.
  • Custom Happy – I use this supplier for face masks and when I need priority shipping for mugs and travel mugs. I also use them to buy boxes of mugs that they ship directly into Amazon FBA once I have a design that is selling well with print-on-demand.
  • Discount Mugs – This is my secondary FBA mug supplier. I use them when Custom Happy is backed up. They are less expensive, but I have to individually package all the mugs myself before sending them into Amazon FBA.
