Print on Demand printing does exactly what it says on the tin: authors and publishers order the exact amount of books they need, when they need them. While this can mean books are only printed when a customer submits an order, it also can be used to print small batches of books for events – a book signing, for instance.
One-off printing refers to printing one book at a time after the order is placed by the end consumer. There is no physical inventory, only virtual inventory, meaning a book is never out of stock or out of print, and can be printed in a timely manner. Obviously the advantage of never warehousing or wasting pre-printed books is a real advantage, and in certain cases can provide real cost savings. The most common use of this type of program is for titles where the volume is relatively low, and the demand is very much unknown. It can also be very valuable for out of print titles to bring them back to life and capitalize on a lost revenue stream.
