We have put of purchasing a colour printer even though we sometimes feel the itch (school projects, printables, etc). We have a black & white inkjet which we make do with.
However, this weekend, we wanted to get a 60 page colour prints for our daughter and I set out to a few local shops which did this kind of printing.
Was in for a shock when I realised the standard rate is INR 10 / page ($0.15 per page). A 60 page printable was coming to ~ $9 which was a lot more than what we wanted to pay.
In addition to this, you had to actually step out of the house, find a shop which does this and then wait while it happens (there is no Staples here).
Tweeted a startup idea here:
After not finding any service which did this and receiving some interest from a few folks, decided to launch this myself!
