Many of us dream of working for ourselves – the freedom associated with being your own boss brings with it an enormous sense of achievement and pride, but also risk. It can be a scary time, and there is lots to consider.

At Helloprint, we do all we can to help business start-ups produce quality literature to stand out from the crowd; whether its printing sales banners and corporate flags to leaflets, letter templates, compliment slips and business cards.

We have produced this helpful, visual guide for anyone wishing to go it alone. The checklist includes everything from finding a mentor to registering your business, as well as advice on what you need to consider before becoming operational and ways to promote your company before and after launch.

We hope you find it useful.
