    Why let that stop you. I have house payment, two car payments, school loans and have to pay my own insurance since I am an independant contractor.

    hehe...you guys are crazy...we are about to go a little deeper in debt as my wife is going to pursue her career of being a wedding/portrait photographer so we need to purchase lots of equipment. Brand new medium format camera's, strobes, backdrops, studio lights, etc....

    But I figure, hey it's an investment...a few weddings and that will easily pay itself off (I hope).

    Stuff like that pays for itself... We just got a new 8color poster printer that can print on media up to 1/2" thick. 1 big job we print pays for it.

    Sell stuff on eBay. It's easy and a good money maker if you find your niche...

    I sell RX-7 parts, but that's probably not good for you...How's about making MP3 player related hardware and such? (keypads, supplies, cases, etc.)

    We have two 60" printers. The models are Encad NovaJet pro600e and Encad NovaJet 880.

    If you live on the east coast most likely you've seen a Liberty Travel.. the posters in the windows were made by me. With the 880 we can print on just about anything that is flat and 1/2" thick or less: plywood, plexi, foamboard, sheet metal... anything.. it just needs a special coating to be applied.

    (before you ask, I don't work for a private printshop, I can't necessarily produce things for people.)

    edit: that doesn't mean I can't.. it just means that I can't always make time for it
