DilameART aka Maria Elena Di Lascio, an Italian Artist and Designer who deals with various forms of art, mainly painting, with different techniques, from the most traditional to the most modern (digital art). For this website, she creates graphics for various kinds of products, for which he receives a percentage of profit on sales.

Dilameart.com is the Online Store where you can buy Dilameart’s creations: from the Print on Canvas or Poster of his original paintings, to products made with graphics created or reworked by the artist, such as various models of bags and suitcases, pillows, cups , t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc. All these products are made “on-demand” or “on request”. On-demand manufacturing is a system in which products are manufactured only when needed and in the required quantities. This revolutionary system contrasts with traditional manufacturing where products are manufactured in large quantities and stored in plants until they are sold, distributed and delivered.

On-demand production has several advantages:

– Meets the needs, personal preferences and needs of end users. In fact, manufacturing on demand allows manufacturers to deliver exactly what the customer expects in terms of production quantities and specifications.

– Reduction of storage and logistics costs for builders and therefore of construction costs. This leads to a reduction in the selling price of the product. In fact, traditional production involves complex logistics operations. After the mass production of a product, the manufacturer must have an elaborate and secure storage/inventory system in place. This adds up to a complete sales network for product marketing and distribution. The manufacturer must also provide, monitor and maintain the transport/logistics infrastructure. All these factors contribute to an exponential increase in production costs and therefore in the selling price of the product.

– Greater control over products and less waste. In traditional manufacturing, the quantity of products manufactured is determined by an estimate or by consumer demand. This estimate is prone to errors, creating the possibility of supply exceeding demand. Products held in stock are also subject to damage, seasonal drops in demand and unforeseen circumstances. One example is the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, during which some manufacturers were stuck with their products due to a mandatory worldwide lockdown. Circumstances like this cause leaks and generate waste that can be dangerous to the environment. In the production-on-demand model, there is no chance that supply will exceed demand, as supply is always created based on demand only.

– “On demand” production is therefore a “Sustainable” production system because it saves many resources that would have been used in the construction of products that could end up not being used. Manufacturers can be confident that they will sell 100% of any product they manufacture, as they can only produce goods they have already sold.

Does “on demand” production have any disadvantages compared to the traditional one? Maybe just one. Since the product is not ready for delivery at the time of the user’s request, but has yet to be manufactured, it takes time, ranging from 2-5 days, depending on the product, to make it and then ship it. Therefore, these production days must be added to the shipping times, which lengthen the delivery time. But the advantage of having a high quality product, made especially for you, and paying for it at a much lower price, because it is free of warehouse and storage charges, is certainly worth the wait.
