Sorry I cannot answer this one properly.... I did not get into printing for the money. The OP knows or should know if it will work, no matter what the economic situation is - good times come and go, its the OP's desire to make it happen is what's important. If you have to ask how to do it I doubt there is much chance of success IMO, I started Silver Shack in a recession, 20 years later we are in another one.

I hope Bob Carnie will chime into this thread at some point with his experiences in Toronto and his knowledge of the printing industry.
