Hey, @Tiny3 

Happy to help! Print on demand is a business model that makes it easy for new entrepeneurs to enter into the market with minimal overhead costs. Essentially, you will partner up with a print-on-demand company that you want to work with.

From there, you will install their app to your Shopify store. By doing this, it's going to allow you to design products from within their app and then publish them over into your Shopify store. From there, when a customer orders from you, you can fulfill their order through the print on demand app. So let's say you charge the customer $30, then the print on demand company charges you $22 when you fulfill the order. You earn the $8 difference. The print-on-demand company will then print out and Ship the order to your customer on your behalf.

That's print-on-demand in a nutshell! I recommend reading through our beginner's guide to print on demand to learn more about the ins-and-outs of running a successful business. As far as finding a print on demand company/app, you will want to check out our app store. Here are a couple of popular print on demand apps:
