More and more people these days prefer to order products through a website and have them delivered just like they do on Amazon. This retail buying experience is now colliding with the business to business buying experience. So, about two years ago we created a proprietary technology allowing companies and their employees to buy their company branded merchandise the same way. Whether it is an employee ordering for themselves, a human resources manager ordering for new hires, or a boss rewarding a hard working employee, everybody wants the same buying experience. They want to go to a website with pre-approved products that they can order as little as one unit and be able to ship it anywhere.
This buying experience is now available because of a new proprietary technology that we developed and combined with a printing process called print on-demand. On-Demand products have many benefits, most importantly no inventory. With on-demand technology you can have 10 or 1,000 products on a website with as many company logos and designs as needed. Each product has a minimum order of one so bulk orders are not needed. There are currently over 100,000 products that can be decorated on demand. Categories include apparel, hats, bags, tech products, home goods, drinkware, ect..
WHAT IS ON-DEMAND?
On-Demand means to produce only the quantity of items you demand or need, which is often just a single item. On-demand for the branded merchandise industry is often called “Print On-Demand or POD, and refers to decorating a product with your company logo by either printing or embroidering; for example a t-shirt, jacket, hat, backpack, etc….
HOW DOES ON-DEMAND WORK?
All your merchandise product orders are placed “On-Demand” as needed through a custom online store we build for you. The store can be added seamlessly to the navigation on your company website or live as a stand-alone store. Choose from thousands of products and hundreds of categories including; Shirts, Jackets, Hats, Bags, Tech Products, Office Products, and more. Once your store is completed your customer and/or employee can select the product and make the purchase, we decorate the product with your brand image, we fulfill, pack and ship directly to the customer, product delivers in 10 days or less. You never have to touch the product. You make your profits with every sale…. 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
No Inventory, No Minimums, No Risk
Instead of buying your branded merchandise in bulk and holding on to the inventory and accumulating products that aren’t selling, you only pay for the products as they are ordered and purchased on your online store. It allows you to offer an alternative way to bypass the time, investment, and risk associated with managing inventory. That means you don’t pay for the product until after you’ve actually sold it, so there’s no need to buy in bulk or hold any inventory yourself. Plus, with on-demand everything after the sale, from printing to fulfillment, to shipping, is handled through our online ordering system so you don’t have to hire anyone to manage it.
Environmentally Friendly Sustainable Merchandising
By not having to carry inventory it ensures that you only order what is requested which reduces the amount of waste from unwanted merchandise that would generally end up in a landfill.
Product Choice, Promoting Your Brand
Not everyone likes the same thing over and over again, especially when it comes to merchandise. Most companies bulk purchase a few products with their company logo on it for events or for employees, generally a water bottle or a t-shirt. But not everybody wants a water bottle or t-shirt, especially when it only comes in one style that doesn’t fit the way you like it or it’s in a color you don’t like. The idea behind having branded products with the company logo is for your brand to be seen and to promote your brand. What if you had a choice of over 100,000 items in any brand, size, style, and color? That is what our technology can offer.
Reduced Costs, Reduced Time
By switching from the traditional way of buying in bulk to buying On-Demand, your total costs are less. When buying in bulk you get a low unit cost for your item, but on top of that you have to factor in the cost of the employee to manage it which includes customer service, ordering, handling, fulfillment, shipping, tracking, returns, and the cost of the space to inventory it. You also have to factor in all the unused inventory that is disposed of, donated, or given away for free. When you total everything up, that low cost t-shirt that you bought in bulk is now more expensive than buying one t-shirt on-demand.
WHY ON-DEMAND WITH SOVEREIGN PARTNERS?
We developed a proprietary technology that we merged with the On-Demand printing process creating a more efficient and cost-effective way to buy and sell your branded merchandise. It eliminates many of the communication and logistical challenges other On-Demand suppliers face with their manufactures and distributors, allowing us to offer our clients the largest variety of products in the industry. Most of our On-Demand competitors are only able to offer a few hundred different products. Our selection of over 100,000 plus products combined with quick turnaround times sets the standard.
