Starting a Screen Printing Business
If you are looking to get into the commercial screen printing business, there are many things you need to do and consider before opening your doors and unveiling your new website. Here are a few of the basic steps you need to follow to open your new company.
1. Start by thoroughly researching the commercial screen-printing business and visiting the websites of companies that are already up and running and reading trade magazines that are available. Decide what kinds of products you would like to sell, from banners to t-shirts to stickers and beyond, and begin to get a feel for the jargon that is used.
2. Get training either by taking a class, securing an internship or an entry-level job in the industry.
3. Begin looking for equipment by contacting vendors who offer new and used machines and set your budget for supplies. Make sure you have a large enough budget to cover startup costs, and if you don’t begin searching for a loan or a sponsor.
