Quick question about a sign/decal business

Okay so a little background...my mother has owned her sign business for about 13 years. It is an extremely profitable and lucrative business, before she slowed down she was bringing in anywhere between 10k-15k per month. She still has all of her equipment and wants me to run the business with her. Now, she is extremely talented, and I am not. I do know how to run the machines and do the setup, but the designing is my downfall.

Just a little bit ago I was thinking to myself and thought about how many people run an online store. My question to you guys is this: would there be much demand for custom stall signs, decals, wall murals, etc.? I have a machine that prints directly on the vinyl, I can take a photo of your horse and make a sticker/decal out of it. I can use any font, any color, any style. Pretty, girly, manly, cowboyish. Pretty much whatever the little heart desires, I can make it. Would there be much demand for this?

I think there would be a demand for it! Custom stall signs and decals are so awesome. Especially if you have a customizable option, so people can get it just how they want.

Best way to go about it, IMOP, is run a facebook page. It's free as far as I know, word of mouth will spread, and you get a whole lot of "fans" and traffic for orders.

Best of luck!!
