With print-on-demand, your orders are printed as soon as they are received, regardless whether you order 1 item or 10.
Our print on demand model allows us to advertise a ‘virtual’ inventory of our designs. Our manufacturing partners stock ‘blank’ versions of our products, ready for production and delivery when you order on our website
Rest assured that we have carefully chosen and quality checked every product that we create.
Usually the garments are printed within 7 business days and shipped delivered within 21-25 business days
Making one product at a time (and only making it when a customer orders it) eliminates many of the biggest challenges in retail and opens up a world of possibilities.
This kind of small-scale fulfillment allows Projects817 to
- try new ideas with zero risk
- respond quickly to trends…
- offer highly customized products…
- run a large business without facilities or labor
- eliminate storage, packing, and shipping work
It goes without saying that these particular benefits are a huge deal to this small businesses run by relatively few people, because more than anything, they reduce risk and overhead — two things smaller businesses often can’t afford to take on.
But there are also major, less obvious benefits to businesses that are used to the logistics that come with bulk manufacturing.
Project817 would like to scale and have customers located all over the world! Our Printing Partners are able to rapidly produce our designs and ship them all over the world
UK & Europe

We have a Manufacturing Partners located in China which distributes currently only to the United States (Duvet Covers, Blankets, Hoodies, Shoes etc).
PRINTED & HANDMADE TO ORDER
Products that are made one at a time are essentially hand-made.
By definition, there is no assembly line to systematically crank out the same product in the exact same way. Even when you make ten units on demand, because there’s no way to predict that ten unit order, there’s no process that can make ten units more consistently than one.
We combine the latest print technologies with expert craftsmanship. but no two on-demand products are exactly the same. This doesn’t mean a product was produced incorrectly; it just means it was made by a person, like every print on demand product.
One latest challenge that’s somewhat unique to print-on-demand is production capacity. Since orders are processed and produced as they arrive, it’s impossible to prepare for spikes (holidays, sales, covid 19 boom.) the same way you might with traditional manufacturing — namely, by investing a lot of money in upfront bulk production and storage. If there’s a sudden crush of orders sent to a single manufacturer, it’s entirely possible that there simply won’t be enough people and machines to produce them all at normal speeds.
