What do you think of this?

This text below is copy and pasted from one of my chats from the moderators, it might sound really cringey because I wanted them to allow it.

Hey members of IF community

I’m here with a idea I had recently which I would love to start, but before I put dedication into this, I need to know if I have a market (business lessons are finally helping). Remember, this post is just a draft of what to come, anything I say is likely to change so don’t make a decision too quickly.

My idea?

Imagine you just took a amazing picture, spotting, or just on infinite flight, and you want a way to view that image, not have it stuck on your small iPad screen - introducing ICMF.

ICMF is a quick name I just came up with for my ‘business’ it currently stands for

Here’s the base of the idea-
My family happen to have access to a basically industrial size printer, it can print anything (trust me) so that gave me the idea, why not try make a bit of profit?

Anything you wanted (specifically IF/Aviation related) can be created and sold to you. I’d like to say I specialize in photos/ canvas etc, but my dad is also a carpenter (hoorayy) so if any of you Aviation Geeks want a unit/table with a favorite plane/airline logo, send us a message when we have the website up and going.

You may ask, what makes me (a 15 nearly 16 year old kid) better than anyone else? Low prices, I don’t want to be like those big business printing services, who charge ridicules prices for the smallest of effort, I want to be the kind of business man who makes little money, but has the satisfaction of creating wonderful pictures. I’m sure I’ll only make at most £10 profit on most items.

Thank you all for reading this, bookmark this topic/keep a eye out for the website link.

Note - I’m sure most of these things are likely to change, definitely the name, if you have any suggestions, reply below.
Edit - If the demand is high, the first product purchased from our website will be 50% off. First customer gets the deal ;)

This is a work in progress, before putting the hard work in creating websites and ordering paper I would love to know if there is a demand :)

note - Can someone smart make a poll saying

well, I can rely on the forum for anything, I didn’t mean literally with those exact words, but no problem at all. Thanks

Could I get some verbal feedback please

So for example you will be making logos and pictures of aircraft on a canvas for us to buy? (How much would it roughly cost)

Depends on the size/quality of canvas. Any picture basically, I just needed a reason to put this on the forum :)

I’ll get back to you

I get where your going with this. I’m sure some people will buy it, but I also know lots wont. Also, I don’t know if you will run into copyright with companies because you are making profit off of their logo’s.

These are early stages.

And yes, I agree a lot of people won’t, but I imagine for some of the hardcore users (I can name a few) might want a nice photo professionally printed to their needs. Maybe a dash 8 crosswind landing 😉😉

I see no problem with you giving it a shot. I hate to be a downer, but don’t expect to make much profit (if any at all). I know you say you don’t care about profit, but don’t get your hopes up just to be disappointed. But i wish you good luck!

I guess it could be successful. I’m not interested in it, but there may be a market. But as RedCatcher said, you’ll have to watch yourself very closely-if you print a British Airways logo right now, they probably wouldn’t notice. But if you’re making a decent profit out of this, then expect a cease and desist letter.

In the UK there are lots of inexpensive website where you can get anything printed on to a canvas so I agree you won’t make much more you of it unless people are loyal enough to use you over these companies

If you are interested in doing it though there is no harm in doing it as long as you aren’t making a loss

Well this seems interesting. I’ve bumped it as well as not many people have seen it.
