Equipment Package- Depends on your checklist information and evaluation of needs.

High Speed Copier- In addition to the self service which is included in the equipment package above, you will lease a high speed copier to handle the larger copy projects.

Working Capital- Funds must be available for a variety of startup expenses: deposits, leasehold improvements, travel and lodging for training, inventory, exterior signage, and others, In addition to these pre-opening expenses you will need adequate operating capital to pay rent, wages, equipment payments, and other regular business expenses during the initial phase of business operation.
