Custom printed fanny packs, dropshipping vs POD with Printify
During your research, you will have no doubt come across a few different options for creating your custom print fanny packs. One of the most popular alternatives to print-on-demand is dropshipping, with the likes of Amazon and Aliexpress. To help you understand, first, we will explain the difference between dropshipping and POD services.
Typically you will place your order with the supplier once you have received an order from your customer. The drop shipper will then send your product out to the client, in the case of Aliexpress, this can sometimes take 3-4 weeks (sometimes faster).
Dropshippers also require you to pay for the good’s upfront, in other words, you take on a bit more risk. You also have a little less control over the supply chain.
In many ways, POD is similar to drop shipping, there are a few important differences, however. The first one is that with Printify, you don’t pay anything until the client’s order is processed.
The second but equally important thing is control. You retain more control over your designs and product range. Because you can access the Printify design tool at any time, 24/7 you can make fast design changes and update your store within minutes. This not only allows you to stay on top of trends and changes, but it also helps to manage your store more efficiently.

With Printify you have more control over the supply chain, you can choose which provider you want to work with, based on reviews, pricing and shipping costs/time. The truth is that both dropshipping and POD are great options for any merchant starting out on their new journey.

So which option is best for your custom print fanny packs?

Fanny pack history
Since they were designed in the 1960s by an Australian lady (who took inspiration from a kangaroos pouch) fanny packs have become an essential part of fashion and culture.
Fanny packs started their rise to fame on the ski slopes of Switzerland in the 1970s, where they were referred to as a ‘stomach bag’. The utility of the fanny pack soon caught on around the world, and before we knew it, fanny packs were everywhere.
It’s this nod to the 80s and 90s that really inspires merchants and of course customers to buy custom fanny packs now. If you didn’t own a fanny pack when you were younger, you can be sure that one of your parents most likely did. Just take a look at a family holiday photo and there is always a fanny pack somewhere.
In 2018, fanny packs were responsible for almost 25% of the U.S. fashion-accessory industry’s growth. This is quite a staggering statistic, showing the meteoric rise back to popularity, that fanny packs have had.
