I was in the process of writing a reply to the effect of "some do!", because I knew that the Warner Archive Collection, which sold the more obscure back-titles from Warner's film archives, used a print-on-demand service (where no back-stock was kept, and each copy that was ordered was printed on demand).

Sadly, it seems that service is no more. I did hear rumours last year that it might be getting killed off, and they seem to have come to pass. A pity, as I don't believe there's a way to officially order some of the more obscure titles now.
