    Hello there,

    I am considering starting a small customizable Photobook (also calendars and gift cards) printing business, since it is very hard to find anyone that provides such services in my area. The maximum printing size doesn't need to be any bigger than A4. Since these services do not exist here, there is great potential for such an idea. As for equipment, I understand I will need a printer that can do duplexing and a binding machine at the minimum.

    Can anyone suggest what kind of a printing machine/press could I start with for small scale printing? And what kind of budget do you think I would need to get started?
