The first thing you would do is to find out if there is a demand for printing in your local community. Since word-of-mouth is really the best and least expensive way to market yourself and your business, it would be an excellent start if your services were needed in your own area.
Then, conduct research on what you would need by way of equipment for your projects. What type of printer? What type of paper goods would be necessary to have on hand? See if you can find a mentor, or someone who is in the business that you are thinking of starting and see if you can pick their brain to find out the ins and outs of what you are interested in.
Additionally, you will need your own marketing materials. Business cards for yourself? Brochures? A website? You will have to decide how you want to market your business, and be prepared for whatever types of ways to get your name heard. Take some time to set your business up right, do your research and get to work.
