In Zazzle's case, they do it for you--essentially, they print on demand and
then drop-ship the item directly to the person who's ordered it.  You-the-designer
set the price point, Zazzle takes a fixed cut in return for its services, and you
get whatever's left over.  In other words, you effectively pay a bit more to get the 
thing printed in return for them handling the supply, shipping, inventory etc.
hassles for you.
