    I would write a list of plus’s and neg’s.

    Food for thought….

    For: fresh customers most days

    Negs: weather effecting machinery, spending 20 mins talking to a customer all for a £5 mug. The customer having to come back later to collect.

    Probably quite a few more for both sides, but can’t think at the mo

    Hi you dont see much of this about which makes me think there cant be much demand, they do do on the spot canvas in the Silverburn shopping centre including taking the photo. I dont think mugs but i have seen caps and Ts. I thin you need to work out footfall and demand against overheads and margins.

    the right place at the right time could be good.

    Outside celtic park after they have beaten Juve with customised Ts we beat Juve might be a good idea LOL

    remember that you can buy all this stuff at most if not all Tesco’s.
    photo taken, order mugs, towels etc go shopping around the shop, back picked up all done and dusted.
    i am not in any way rubbishing your idea in any way mate, but denise makes good points and with the tesco scenario i just think its a difficult one.

    quote Denise Goodfellow:

    Here lies the problem + add on the time to design & produce the mug, t-shirt or whatever 😕
