  1. Hi Jeff,
    This is very interesting! I’ve never thought about putting something like this on my WordPress site.
    Print on demand is a very popular thing these days, and I’ve looked at some of these sites in the past.
    Lately, I’ve been thinking about getting some books printed for my grandsons.
    I don’t have any buy buttons on my site as of yet, so I’ll have to look into that.
    Do you know if all these sites would take PayPal as a pay source?
    Cheers,
    Suzanne

    1. Hello, Suzanne
      I thank you for sharing your excitement from this tutorial,
      you can join Book Bolt that pays through PayPal but as for
      the others you would have to check them out and see I am
      not familiar with how they pay

      If you have a specific program in mind I would be more
      than happy to check it out for you
      Jeff

  2. A very informative article. I never knew such a thing existed. The fact you do not have to publish 1000’s of books and take the risk of selling them all to make money is an excellent idea. Thanks for the post.

  3. I had never heard the term “print on demand books” but it sounds very interesting! That is a great way to generate income without creating a bunch of things and being left with the excess products. As you explained, it takes out a lot of the extra work of tracking, printing and shipping.

    I am not familiar with most of the Print On Demand companies you shared, but that is great list. My husband has created things and sold them on Redbubble for a few years, which has brought in a nice passive income for us. I can attest to the potential ease of making money after you’ve created things and put it out there through these companies online!

    It is very helpful that many of the companies you described that offer a new online business strategy or service also allow a free trial period to let you get your feet wet and see if it’s a good fit.

    Thank you for sharing this information!

  4. Thanks for writing this article. Didn’t know this product existed, definitely will be using it in the future. It works basically like dropshipping right?
    I saw that you mentioned that it can print T-shirts and things too, does it work properly that way or is it more geared towards books?
    Also wondering if this works with shopify?

    1. Book Bolt is only for a print on demand book business, but the others
      offer different products you can print your own images on or text
      to sell and some have affiliate programs.

      You can use any of these on Shopify, and Printful is one of Shopify’s
      free suppliers if this interests you

  5. Hi Jeff,

    I am so glad I came across this article because I am in the middle of writing a book for my highly effective leader business. I am nearly finished and need to start think about covers, printing and marketing.

    The print on demand idea sounds amazing. I am definitely going to look into this when it comes the right time.

    Thanks for sharing. All the best,

    Tom

  6. This is the first time I have heard of print on demand books. I have been thinking of creating an ebook and this will be a great feature to add for those who prefer the feel and smell of a real book, without printing numerous copies and sit on your inventory. I have a website and your suggestion of adding the Woo Commerce plugin is something I believe I can do with a little research on how to do it.

    1. I am happy this tutorial has motivated you with your eBook creation,
      if you do add the Woo Commerce store and need assistance I will help
      you at no cost to you
      Jeff

  7. I just became familiar with the print on-demand service Printful. I think its a fantastic idea, and one that I’d like to incorporate into my website as well. But I had no idea that so many of these companies existed, so there’s definitely a need that’s getting fulfilled. Thank you for showing many more options and outlining some of the advantages. What has been your experience/level of success with print on-demand?

    1. Hello, Dereck
      I have not used print on demand yet for my business, but I am leaning towards
      starting another business specializing in print on demand products and shared
      what I have learned so far with you and my other readers
      Jeff

  8. Print on Demand is kind of new for me. The only print on demand service that I was aware was the alternative of not having to go to local printing store in case you have a large volume to print for a cheaper service. I once searched for other services and I found a couple of them. Same is for copy service. But thank you for sharing this new business idea.

    1. Printing your own unique images and text on products can be great for promoting your business,
      and even better a great business opportunity to start a business in this type of niche

      Jeff

  9. Interesting…So the cost of the POD book is $9.99. Are there any other costs associated with print and delivery? As I was reading your blog I was thinking of writing a soft cover book specifically to homeowners thinking of selling, to use as a lead generation tool for my real estate business. How much would it cost me to order several for my own use?

    1. You receive everything you will need at the price of $9.99 with Book Bolt,
      and in my opinion, this is the best deal anyone can find for promoting their
      books.

      What happens is when you sell one of your books and your customer places the order
      Book Bolt automatically receives your book order, they will then print and send your
      order to the customer directly and whatever profit is left is what you will earn
      from their service.

      I suggest you contact Book Bolt for more information on how to set up your book service
      with them
      Jeff

  10. Interesting article! I didn’t know this type of service exists. Would you usually write you own book and sell it? Or you would buy rights to sell someone else’s books?

    1. This is for people who are writing their own books and need a way to publish their
      books and market them without investing a ton of money, so with a business writing
      books on your niche in ebook format or any other format can be done by using their
      services for the low price of $9.99

      Jeff

  11. Great idea! Print-on-demand books. I can totally see this taking off. It’s basically self publishing. No need for a book deal. Make your own deal instead. No inventory headaches, no storage headaches. This totally makes sense.

    1. This is a great option for people who are writers and business owners,
      you can write a book for your business and Book Bolt will support you
      step by step all the way without paying for publishing expenses and
      having to keep an inventory
      Jeff

  12. this is very thought provoking. I have been offering a a free e-book to my subscribers but think that it might be a good idea to offer this for a limited time and then sell it, before promoting the second one. What do you think?

    1. This is a very affordable program providing everything you need,
      and there are no contracts or having to figure out how much to charge
      since you pay a monthly fee

      I am impressed with this program,
      whenever I get started with ebooks I plan to give this
      a try first thing for $9.99 per month and everything included
      how can I lose
      Jeff

  13. Hi Jeff! Thank you for your sharing to increase my knowledge. This is my first time come across “Print On Demand”. I have heard of Tee Spring so now I know it is under Print On Demand Company. And I didn’t know there is so many such companies until I saw the list you provided.

    I have been marketing other companies products. Maybe I should look into selling my own products. Will look into it and need to explore more around. I’m not a writer so maybe selling my book is not for me. Will go through your list to check it out what other products are available.

    Thank you very much!

    1. Thank you, Janet
      I appreciate you reading and commenting on my Print on Demand book business,
      I find this is a great opportunity for writers but not for everyone

      Jeff

  14. Hello Jeff,

    Thanks for this useful post as I have always been curious about how Print on Demand works. I knew the basic idea but you filled in the gaps. Now I believe that I have a more firm understanding of what I need to do if I ever wanted to create a book on demand.

  15. Thanks for the awesome information! I had no idea this existed but, as you mentioned, there are so many benefits to it! I’ll have to look into this even further!

    1. Thank you, Abby
      This is a unique niche for someone who is into writing
      or has access to ebooks to sell. I like how it allows
      you to find the best book niches, and saves you so much
      time providing everything you need in one place
      Jeff

  16. This is such a great tutorial, thank you! I’ve never thought much about this avenue of revenue so this was really interesting, and you made it seem easy as well to set up which was great. It’s definitely something I’d like to consider in future, and I will definitely think about the woo commerce plugin. I know everything’s gone a bit ebook crazy these days, but there are still so many of us in the world that love actual books! And it’s a really lovely personal way of getting your work out there too, without the worry of losing out due to the cost. It’s a win, win! Definitely food for thought! Thanks for the great read 🙂
