Complete Beginner Print Shop

I’ve been doing wedding invitations, business cards, and art prints for a few years but my career leaves me no time to print. I would much prefer that this go to someone who can keep the art alive rather than lose it all to scrap metal.

I have a pickup truck and forklift at my current location, so I can assist in moving the equipment to your location within reasonable distance. I will also help you get started printing with a lesson at your location, if desired.

Asking $3,500, but will entertain all serious offers.
