Custom puzzle board printing, Custom Printers vs POD
Let’s face it, most people that are buying print on demand custom puzzles for gifts or personal use are doing it by ordering products directly from a printing company, in most cases using their own or even *shudders* a poorly chosen clip art template design that doesn’t properly express the idea. Let’s go over some of the key differences between having your puzzles custom printed and printing them on demand.
Custom puzzle board printing
Custom puzzle printing forces your customer to order from your store or through you before you contact the printer. In some cases, you won’t even receive your money until after the product has been delivered. Worse yet, a printer may have a minimum order on these types of products or other features that drive the price out of budget.
After that, you’ll receive the product, usually after a delay of at least 1-2 weeks, and you will then show them to your customer. In some cases, it is not possible to change the product or receive a refund once you’ve received the product, and oftentimes a printing company will require payment upfront.
