Fantasy Flight Print on Demand
Print on Demand allows Fantasy Flight Games to develop high-quality components for existing products. Using this digital method of manufacturing we can produce professionally finished cards on a made-to-order basis, which opens up many opportunities for expanding existing games.
Unlike PNP (Print and Play), POD (Print on Demand) does not leave require any additional work on your part. Simply purchase the Print on Demand product from your local retailer or the Fantasy Flight Games webstore, and you’ll have a professionally printed and produced-to-order product that can be integrated into your game.
What Does Print on Demand Mean For Customers?
While Fantasy Flight Games strives to continually support its numerous lines of games, it is not always feasible to publish traditional expansions for every single product. We have chosen to use this method of production as a way to provide fans with new material that would otherwise not be commercially viable.
Print on Demand enables us not only to produce very small quantities of products at low cost, but also to publish these materials at a faster pace. This means that you, the consumer, will have access to new products sooner.
Print on Demand and Retailers
Retailers can remain involved in the sales of these micro-expansions and Print on Demand products will be available to retailers at their full trade discount.Our Print on Demand catalog provides your store with the quantity of products that you want, without having to deal with a surplus of SKUs. This will help you customize your inventory to fit the needs of your customer-base.

Print on Demand Card Quality
Due to the difference in production, the Print on Demand cards will not 100% match all of the cards that exist in the Fantasy Flight catalog. Color shifts are bound to happen when printing materials on different printers. In addition, the high-quality Print on Demand cards are created using different methods, resulting in them not having the linen finish found on many Fantasy Flight Games cards.
