Print On Demand (POD) means that the sheet music is printed by the publisher after you place an order. Print on demand (POD), sometimes called publish on demand, is a printing technology in which new copies of sheet music are not printed by the publisher until after an order has been received. We use POD in special circumstances, such as reprinting older titles that had been out of print or for titles having low demand. Additional time is required to print the sheet music and add a lead time before shipping of one to three weeks.
