Printing Press Business – Types & Profit

Printing press business is a very big niche and we can find shops related to this business in only cities.

Continuing our business ideas series, today we are going to discuss everything about this profession including types, profit estimation, to start this or not? & more.

Types of Printing Press Business

There are many types of this business, let’s see them one by one:

1. Marriage Card Printing

During the marriage, every house needs to give invitations to their relatives, friends, teachers, business partners, etc. so that they can attend the wedding on time.

And we all know India is a very big country so there are many marriages which happen in a year.

In this business, we need to print cards & all the essential details on it, provided by the marriage person or his/her relatives.

Things Required

To start this business we will require a printer & pre-build designer cards.


There is 100% profit in marriage card printing business, let’s say if we purchase a designer card for 5 rupees then we can easily sell it for 10 rupees.

Designs the main key point in this business, we need to keep too many attractive but pocket-friendly card designs.

Make sure to print your shop name anywhere on the card so that the people who will see the card be able to read where this card is printed and it’s free of cost advertisement of our business. 🤗

2. Visiting Card Printing

Almost all the shopkeeper have their own visiting cards to distribute to new customers.

This helps them to grow their customer count and directly their profits.

In this business we need to print shop name, owner name and mobile number, products in which owner deals, address, and many more.

To start this business, we will need a printer, laptop or computer, and raw material i.e hard paper.


The profit in this business is very good but not enough i.e in visiting card printing a person can earn 1 to 1.5 rupees per card but that person will need at least 500 to 1000 card order daily to earn decently.

And we all know it is impossible to get this many orders daily.

3. Normal Printing Work

Normal printing work includes copying, photo cloning, photo generating, and many more.

There are many government works in which people need a copy of original documents and for this, they need to go to these shops who are doing normal printing work.

We just need a normal printer which can create copy fast, this device can cost up to 10,000 rupees.

4. Carry Bag Printing

With the ban of plastic all over the world, the demand for biodegradable carry bags has increased and the carry bag printing business is related to this.

In this business, we need to buy carry bags at wholesale rates and normally we can get good quality bags under 70 rupees.

We can sell these carry bags double the amount at we purchased, for example, we purchased at 70 rupees, then we can sell at 140 rupees.

Normally the rates of plastic polythenes are 120 rupees per kg so to compete with them we need to lower the price up to 100 rupees per kg, this will attract more and more customers.

This business also help us to protect the nature.


The investment in the printing press business can vary from 10,000 to 3,00,000 depending upon which type of printing press we want to start.

For example, if we want to start all four of the above businesses the investment cost will be high but if with one then it will be less.

Is printing press business profitable?

Yes, it is, but my concern here is about customers, we can get customers in carrying bags and wedding card printing business but I don’t think the rest two will work.

If someone starts with a shop on rent then starting days can be very difficult as rent is like EMI which that person needs to pay.

I hope you have understood my concern.

Thanks 👍
