We buy novelties from Tobar. We made a fortune on them about £400.

Well, how many people are going to buy something unusual? I can't see it making much profit if it's only a present. Because presents aren't bought very often, but as Valentines Day is coming up...maybe...

Yes, it is a novelty shop/warehouse. Very large company. It is tobar.co.uk Though you do need details like company name etc to det an account up.

Buy some sticker/transfer paper and some basic stationary stuff and offer a customised stationary service - people bring in their photo's pictures etc and you scan them in and print them out in the right format to fit onto rulers/erasers/notebooks etc etc all you need is a scanner and a printer and access to a half decent graphics resizing package and a few peices of paper - you do t shirts etc too with the transfer paper stuff.

Hmm, that's a good idea actually, but we don't have a scanner. Thanks though.

That Tobar site looks good, but you need a membership number, and we don't have. Doesn't say how to get one. I'll ask te DoE leader.

That's what my YE company did last year (amongst other products). We ordered transfer paper from Viking Direct (costs about 60p a sheet but you obviously put more than 1 graphic on a sheet) and bought really cheap vest tops (£1.99 a top!) from Poundstretcher. You can pretty much use the transfer paper with any printer (apart from laser printers) and so all you need are some good graphics (our fantastic Art Directors created our graphics but you can find decent ones from the internet though). We made a lot of profit by selling the vest tops for about £6 I think
