When someone purchases your item, the print on demand company, prints and packages the product and sends it to the customer. You receive your profit.
Create as many designs as you want and promote them on Pinterest and Instagram. Pinterest is the most effective way of promoting your Print on Demand products however, you should also include Instagram in your online marketing strategy to increase your online visibility.

You will need the time to create the templates and designs however, once you set it up and begin promoting the products, you only need a couple of hours a day to check orders and post on social media.
Create homemade items such as craft sets, jewelry and blemish oil. For this, you will need packaging and labels, ingredients and components to create your products. You might also need all-in-one printers to print your thank you cards, receipts and packing labels.
A business that involves physical products is certainly more difficult than a digital business however if you are passionate about the products that you are creating and selling, go ahead and give it a try! Eventually, if your business grows, you can outsource certain tasks to freelancers and contract workers.
