Printing Paper Cutting Business in Nigeria


I don’t know how conversant you are with the huge money making opportunities that printing and publishing business in Nigeria can offer.


Well, I did take some time out of my busy schedule to investigate the many opportunities that are present in printing and publishing business in Nigeria and I discovered that majority of printing press in Lagos (the hub of printing business in Nigeria),operate on small scale and most of them don’t have sections where bond paper can be cut to various sizes before and after printing jobs are completed for customers. 


Before bond papers are used for printed works like books, newspapers, journals, Novels, manuals and other office stationary products, it must first be cut into sizes e.g A4, A3, A5 etc to suit the different types of Printing machines ( 201 and Cord printing Machine) to be used for a particular printing job. Also, to achieve good finishing on any printed job and stationary papers these products are taken to a Guillotine paper cutting machine where all rough and unwanted edges are sheared off to give it a fine appearance.
The vacuum created by the non availability of Guillotine paper cutting machines in most printing presses have made things difficult for freelance printers and publishers when it comes to cutting  their printed jobs,they have to keeping moving from one printing shop to the other to get their paper cut to size.
But, this also have opened up opportunities for some few people whose press have a Guillotine paper cutting machine to make millions of Naira annually from paper cutting business.
They charge as much as N20 for every single line cut made by the blade of the Guillotine paper machine. A freelance printer that wants to cut a 17 by 27inches bond paper into A4 (cut four) will have to pay N80per ream and N8000 if it is ten reams he is cutting.
The Cutting of these ten reams of Bond paper usually don’t take up to 30minutes for the machine operator to complete. With more customers you can make more than N8000per day and even, if the daily profit is made to stand at N8000, Bond Paper Cutting business in Nigeria will still be profitable. And apart from the income generated by cutting bond papers directly, additional income can still be made by gathering together all the waste papers left behind by customers, this you can sell to people who are into waste paper business in your area for recycling.
