Owning a Printing or Publishing Business
Owning a publishing company usually involves either buying or commissioning content for publication. Editors are hired to review the content. The work then needs to be prepared for the actual printing.
Although book publishers seldom own printing presses and binderies, companies that publish journals usual do. A printing company will need to rely on technicians who are proficient at keeping the presses maintained and functioning at all times. Consider whether editing, proofreading, design, and layout will be done in-house or whether it will be contracted out.
Commercial printing companies offer business services ranging from printing of brochures, promotional material, business cards, and more. Some even offer creative services such as logo and web site design, for example.
