Print on Demand – Exploring the Market Opportunities
Our next generation of customers, the iGen, expect their needs to be met on their terms. With the rapidly evolving world of technology and manufacturing, companies are well positioned to offer custom products designed and made to their clients specifications. Working as a designer in commercial interiors, I see potential for custom designs and products in a variety of settings. The use of print technology provides the opportunity for each space to afford it’s own unique experience. I will share with the group, the companies that I have encountered that offer these types of products and how they are capitalizing on the “Print on Demand” market.
