Wrapping paper, iPhone cases, an all-over t-shirt, and apparel are just a sampling of products you can create when uploading your pattern to these online marketplaces. It is an excellent option for designers who want to retain the rights to their work.

Choosing among so many print-on-demand options can be a daunting task, but the best way to start is by narrowing down your needs and selecting what will work for you.

We have broken down the print-on-demand options into three categories.

Amazon Merch on Demand is Amazon's own print-on-demand service that enables you to list designs on without any upfront costs. Earn a royalty on every product sold that features your design (s). Merch by Amazon is not a Print on Demand fulfillment company. Still, it is an excellent opportunity for passive income because you do not have to worry about inventory, shipping, customer service, or returns on one of the world's most visited websites.

As the popularity of Merch by Amazon grew, they were forced to change the system to an invite-only system. When you submit a request, Amazon will send you an email with the decision as soon as it is made.


  • Invite-only, need to submit a request
  • Flexible Royalty Rates - you set the royalty you want to earn per sale
  • Payments are made 30 days after the end of the calendar month in which you have accrued royalties
  • Payouts are paid monthly via electronic funds transfer (EFT)
  • Create multiple products with a single design submission

Con: Wallpaper is the only product that will automatically repeat, and that's only if you upload a square repeat pattern image. We also found this site to be very labor intensive uploading to all the products. We recommend first uploading an image that is 15000 x 15000 pixels. This will cover the entire range of products offered on Society6, however the size will vary on each item. For this reason you may need to create one or two additional upload images: 3600 x 3600 or 5000 x 5000 pixels.
