TOP SITES TO CREATE YOUR OWN PRODUCTS FOR FREE AND MAKE MONEY ONLINE (Part-I)

Creating your own products used to mean a significant up-front investment — purchasing a minimum amount of the product as dictated by the manufacturer, paying for warehousing, packaging, point-of-sale systems, and other overhead costs. And that was all before you even took a single order!

Thankfully, for many types of products, print-on-demand technologies have made it possible for anyone to create and sell goods over the Internet with little or no up-front costs.

Below is a roundup of 15 great print-on-demand sites that will help you create and sell everything from t-shirts to clocks, from books to skateboards, from board games to fabric. If you know of additional print-on-demand sites to make and sell your own products, let us know in the comments.

1. CAFEPRESS.COM CafePress is one of the oldest print-on-demand services online and they offer one of the largest catalogs of products on which you can print your logo or designs. From apparel, like t-shirts, sweatshirts, and hats, to calendars, posters, mugs, water bottles, stickers, stuffed animals, buttons, messenger bags, and even clocks, CafePress offers hundreds of different products to sell and its thriving community of users creates over 45,000 new items each day on the site.

2. ZAZZLE.COM Like CafePress, Zazzle offers a huge number of customizable products including t-shirts, sweatshirts, bags, ties, and even aprons, jackets, postage stamps, and shoes. They offer both custom on-demand printing and embroidery on many of their clothing products, and also offer a range of non-apparel items, such as skateboard decks, calendars, magnets, and post cards. Zazzle users have created a mind blowing 19.5 billion items.

3. SPREADSHIRT.COM While the focus on Spreadshirt is on t-shirts and sweatshirts, they also offer a range of accessory items that can be printed with your designs, including bags, aprons, buttons, and neckties. One of SpreadShirt’s strengths is the ease of use of its online product designer, making is really easy for anyone to make or customize products that can then be sold to the public.

4. PIKISTORE.COM Pikistore does t-shirts and a few other customizable items, such as mugs and mouse pads, and does it with a flair that other print-on-demand publishers would be hard pressed to match. For those who want a really great looking storefront from which to sell their t-shirts, perhaps one that matches the look and feel of an existing web site, then Pikistore might be a good option to check out.

5. LULU.COM For authors and photographers (and musicians and filmmakers), Lulu offers an amazing service. Lulu is a great way for anyone to publish a printed book (in either hard or softcover, perfect bound, spiral bound, or saddle stitched), CDs, or DVDs. One of the best things about Lulu is that they can help you get your products listed for sale on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and in bookstores, as well as tools to help you sell and promote your work through social networks like Facebook.
