Default Starting a business

I want to start my own business. Where can I get a manual pad printer to print mugs ect. and a 6 color silk sreen equipment. I live in Los Angeles. Hows much can I expect to make with no real knowledge of this business but with good contacts-I think...

For the pad printing machine check out Printa Systems, ITW Imtran, Kent Pad Printer Canada, and Winon USA.

For the screen printing press check out M&R Printing Equipment, Anatol Equipment Manufacturing, and Workhourse Products.

They have plenty of equipment listed there as well as dealer locations, price range varies. Just so you know, you'll need A LOT more stuff than a pad printer and screen printing press before you can really get started. For supplies, software, and misc. items you should consult with your dealer/sales rep.

As with any new skill, it will take some time and lots of practice before you may feel comfortable in your work, and to produce professional quality products. Fortunately, there are lots of training and education material available today than there were years ago. Aside from hands-on training from your dealer, there are videos and manuals out there you can get - just ask your dealer. There are also many workshops and seminars available. Your dealer will know everything about that.

As far as making money with pad and screen printing, like any business, most who start in this field fail. That's just the cold hard truth. I don't know enough about you or your particular situation to know how much you'll be making. But with hard work and good business skills, of course you can make good money. This applies in any business. You're off to a good start by having good contacts.
