    Haha. Yea. I saw a $300 to 400 dollar plotter/software combo on signwarehouse.com. if you have a space for that. If not just outsource it. There's alot of wholesale printers now a days. Whatever you do. Don't open up shop across the street from your last/current employer.

    This is the only forum i go to. I suggest cut vinyl at first. and outsource all your printed work. Find a merchant member on here. They got good prices.

    Ok, I've been on this forum like 7 years and have never heard of this. What the puff is a tarpaulin printer? I must be missing something.

    Lost in translation, but I'm going to take a wild guess and say he's talking about banner printing. The canvas is essentially tarp material.


    Dang Pat, you beat me to the punch...great minds think alike.

    tarpaulin not sure it's spelled correctly but they use that in europe for truck sides on semi trucks, aka 24oz. and higher scrim.

    That brochure Pat mentioned really does works, it took me a month to learn the sign business, maybe I will pick up shop and move to the Philippines :banghead:

    I wouldn't pick up the brochure until next year's subscription comes out s201.064.828v. early in December. It promises to have special chapters on underbidding and beating out your competition with no money invested.

    And don't forget the new-and-improved "just one money" pricing model.

    It's worked wonders for the dollar stores, so why not us?
