The Benefits of On-Demand Design When Working with a Product Manufacturer

Wondering what all the hype is about on-demand design?

On-demand design allows you to outsource your graphic design services to professional agencies, streamlining your process and saving you time and effort.

There are many reasons that on-demand design can transform your business when working with a product manufacturer, and we’re going to break them down below!

What Is On-Demand Design in Product Manufacturing?

Let’s say you’re making accessories, like patches or pins, or promotional items — with specific designs and custom options, it’s easy to get bogged down by the design aspect of things. Who’s going to design what goes on your products?

Maybe you were going to do that yourself or hire an external designer to do the job for you.

But have you considered on-demand design through the product manufacturer?

With this service, you can allow the company that will be manufacturing the goods you’ll be selling to design them as well, getting every aspect of your product creation taken care of in one convenient location.

Rather than creating the design yourself, you can trust that aspect of the process to the professionals — freeing up more time to focus on running your business efficiently.

Were you leaning toward hiring an outside designer?

Consider that, with on-demand design services offered through your product manufacturer, you can rest assured that the designer understands the product you’re creating and has the skills to bring your creative vision to life.

This all-in-one solution is convenient, helps streamline your process, and — when you work with The/Studio — guarantees a high-quality product.

How Does On-Demand Design in Product Manufacturing Work?

On-demand design sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?

Wondering what this process would look like for your business?

Here’s a breakdown of what the process looks like from start to finish if you want to work with the manufacturer creating your process for on-demand design services as well.

Of course, the process may vary slightly depending on the company you choose to work with, but here’s a general overview of what you can expect:

Choose Your Product

Unless you already know what product you want to create, browse your manufacturer’s product catalog to determine what product (or products) you’d like to produce.

Your products could include anything from custom hatssockscufflinkslanyardsstickers, and so much more!

Customize Your Product

This step is where a lot of the fun of on-demand manufacturing comes in! To start, create a design from scratch. If you don’t want to use an online product creation tool or provide your own design, see the great results that come from trusting an expert to take on the job!

At The/Studio, you can chat with experts in the product you’re looking to create and trust our dedicated team to develop an incredible design that brings your vision to life. Based on your feedback, let the experts get to work and create a fantastic design.

Approve Your Mockup

Within 24 hours, you’ll receive a digital mockup of your product to approve. If you like it, you can even choose to receive a sample batch for your final review. Once you confirm you’re happy with the result, everything is ready to go to full production.

Receive Your Product

Then, it’s finally time for the moment you’ve been waiting for — to receive your product, customized down to the last detail, thanks to the fact that you worked from start to finish with a product manufacturer that could handle both design and production.

Under One Roof

Keep things simple by working with both your design and production experts all in one place. Rather than balancing multiple different points of contact, keeping things under one roof helps to streamline your process.

Mock-Up Directly From the Manufacturer

Seeing an example from a designer that’s not the manufacturer can make it difficult to imagine the final product’s appearance. By working directly with the manufacturer, you can trust that the mock-up will be accurate and take the guesswork out of visualizing what it’ll look like before taking the design from the designer to the manufacturer.


Chances are, you’ll save money by working with your product manufacturer to create the design of your product — especially because, if you work with The/Studio, you can work with one of our in-house designers completely free of charge!

Total Customization

By working with an in-house designer through your product manufacturer, you can trust that you’re working with a professional who is an expert in the product you’ll be making. They’ll understand the product inside and out and have a familiarity with it that you can’t match with an outside designer.


Rather than reaching out to your designer and waiting for them to create your design — or putting effort into making it yourself — and then bringing that design to the manufacturer, why not streamline your process by doing everything all in one place and cutting out that step? Doing so helps to make your production process that much easier.
