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

not knowing about injectable refillable ink

The cartridge prices are insane, but you only need to replace those once a month if it jams.

Why not order prints of your art and resell? Might work out better quality and cheaper

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 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

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!

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?

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

You're gonna have to make your own thread on /wsr or Veeky Forums, or look up places in your area that offer that stuff.

Also I'm going to take a guess and you should ask your city's subreddit

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