I'm thinking of getting into selling posters on ebay, good idea or no?

I'm a graphic designer and have some good niches with some bands and I think I can make some money.
I'm going to buy a good printer (about $200) some paper ($25) and some shipping tubes (about $75)

Should I do it? Any tips from anyone selling similar stuff on ebay?
>>
>not realizing printer ink is fucking insane in price

Maybe you can design posters but printing and selling them is a terrible idea
>>
>>1783015
>not knowing about injectable refillable ink

The cartridge prices are insane, but you only need to replace those once a month if it jams.
>>
>$200
>Good printer
>>
>>1783020
*Good printer for the price of $200
>>
Why not order prints of your art and resell? Might work out better quality and cheaper
>>
>>1783031
Because I'm assuming some products will sell more than others and I don't want to have shitloads of unsold posters laying around when I could just print them right then and there.
>>
Alright, I'll just do >>1783031 what said and try my luck on ebay for a month. And if it goes well I'll buy the printer.

Good luck fellas.

Are you shilling mate?

You can get 11x17 prints at the fucking UPS store for 70 cents
>>
>>1783113
>UPS store at 70 cents
So why are you talking about buying a printer then?

Also, no, you can not print 11x17 posters in 80# weight paper for 70 cents.

Also, UPS store charge you way more for shipping. Any known print-on-demand operator beat them on price.

I thought I'd help you out, but instead you wanna sperg out. Stay poor!
>>
>>1783012

make a website maybe?

I buy posters from art posters and pay $10 per poster and $10 for shipping.

You can buy them for 70-90 cents each. No shipping charge.

I had the same idea, but I wanted to make old sheets, shirts, and other fabric into tapestries, what is the cheapest way to get started?
>>
>>1783723
Find a place that does it cheap, try your luck on ebay for a while with some small inventory.
Then If it goes well then invest in a printer

>t. going off the advice from this thread
>>
>>1783012
>not knowing how selling on stock image, freelance jobs sites work
Why spending capital at all when you can start it at $0? You deserve to be poor anon
>>
>>1783729
>it's a "poster that only gives you a sentence to go off of without any additional information then calls you an idiot episode"

I always skip these
>>
>>1783725
What are the cheapest kind of places/printers that take people's sheets and fabrics and print their own designs?
>>
>>1783737
You're gonna have to make your own thread on /wsr or /biz/, or look up places in your area that offer that stuff.
>>
>>1783737
Also I'm going to take a guess and you should ask your city's subreddit

If /biz/ isn't helpful in this thread, why would it be helpful in another, and request people will just tell me to gtfo to /biz/.

>>1783740
>reddit
You have to go back.
>>
>>1783747
nigger I'm trying to be helpful
>>
>>1783749
Its not really that helpful to just say go ask someone else.
>>
>>1783786
If you gave the name of your city then I would be able to help
>>
>>1783795
Middle of nowhere between KC and St. Louis.
>>
Why not design t shirts on tee spring and similar websites and shill on Facebook etc?
>>
>>1783512
>got original post removed cause I was giving you a "rec"
>still a graphic designer that can't understand paper qualities
>still can't find a print-on-demand co that are cheaper than bloody UPS
Stay more poor
>>
>>1783851
Are you gonna provide any links?
>>
>>1783916

Also. Go to bed. It is 5AM in flyover-state-land.
