What Fregados is Print on Demand?

In another of our articles we talk about what dropshipping is and all the advantages and disadvantages it has. Now I want to talk to you about a very similar business model, but oriented to another market niche: Print on Demand.

Operationally, this model works the same as dropshipping, but it tends to focus on design businesses, entertainment, book authors, speakers who want to start selling personalized merchandise of their brand or company.
