Suggestions for new sign business
Posted by: oc63rag (---.lsanca.dsl-w.verizon.net)

I realize there will be many opinions on this but here goes.
I'm interested in starting a sign/banner/display graphics business. I'd like to start out of my garage until I can afford a commercial location. I want to keep costs down but I don't want to go so cheap that I miss business opportunities due to my equipment.

With that in mind, what would you suggest for:
Printer (indoor to start and then move up to solvent?)
RIP (absolutely necessary or grow into one as color management needs dictate?)
Laminator
Graphics software (I already have Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.)
- I'd like to do vehicle graphics. I've seen the turnkey packages (vehicle templates, graphics, etc.) that Feller's sells. Are these worth the money?
I have access to ink and media through various contacts so I can keep costs down on these items.

Please let me know what you think.
Thanks
