I'm looking to start a home based sign business with my wife. We would eventually like to move it into a store front as it grows. I'm working a full time job, but my wife is not working. She is a graphic artist, and I'm good with sales and service, and can manage the business. I only have about $6000 to start up the business. I was thinking I might be able to get a lower end Inkjet like say a HP 500 42" Wide format Inkjet. for about $3000. ( any reccomendations on this?) focus mainly on doing window cling signs, and faux etchings/stained glass for windows. small full color signs and decals for local businesses indoor and outdoor. I'm thinking I can print onto clear vinyl and laminate it for most applications. I know I will also need a cold laminator or a big squeegee! work table, and accessories. I guess my big question is, will this type of printer work untill I can afford somthing that is more standard? I'm worried about the ink fading and such. Any advice you can give would be much appreciated.
