Hi Everybody-- My husband is looking to start a home-based business and I am scared to death! He is looking at investing a lot (to me) of money on an expensive printer that can transfer color photographs onto special sports balls, like baseballs, soccer balls, footballs, hockey pucks, etc. Using this printer, he can permananetly put pictures of individual players or teams on balls as keepsakes of their little all stars, along with names, years team names, etc.. He will be marketing them locally and on a web site. Because it is home based, the printing machine would not be used very much until he grows the business. Here's what I need advice on. His idea is to help soccer moms or other people wanting a home-based business by allowing them to start their own specialty sports ball printing businesses in their own towns. The soccer Moms could sell orders for team or individual player balls to their own leagues, schools (and other leagues if they wanted to). They could take their own orders, collect the prepayment, gather the pictures digitally and send the bulk orders in over the internet. He would then print up the balls and send them back to the moms. His wholesale cost per ball would be about $10 for the average ball after printing, and the seller could set their own price for the custom balls-- $15-$20 maybe. Other balls could be more depending on the sport and size. There would be no start-up costs for the moms at all, and they would be able to have their own business without investing $20,000 like he is... Do you think there would be any interest from stay at home moms to want to do this? He seems to think that hey-- they're already there, they already know people and that this would be an easy way for soccermoms to make some extra bucks without risk! The moms would make more money than he would on each ball, but he was hoping that the extra work would help to pay off the large equipment investment earlier. BTW --this is not a home-based business offer-- I'm just wondering if he is crazy or not. BTW only 4 months to our DW trip to ASMO!!!!
