This project is for manufacturing and marketing decorated glassware. In order to upgrade the quality of the daily-use glassware items like tea sets, dinner sets, and lampshades different designs are put on the glassware to make it more attractive. They have a wide market because they are household items in almost every family in both rural and urban areas.
They are used in places like hotels, offices, Restaurants, and homes. The business idea is based on production of 26,000decorated glasses per month, which translates into 312,000glasses per annum.
The revenue potential is estimated at US$14,300 per month, translating into US$171,600 per annum with a net profit margin of 23% and a payback period of 1 year and 4 months. Total investment requirements are US$ 24,110 for the first one year of project operation.
Production process-The glassware is decorated with the help of special attractive designs are painted or printed.. In making multicoloured designs, different types of silk screens are prepared after mixing colours with turpentine fat oil or gum. After painting on a clean surface, the glassware is allowed to dry and put in an electric muffle furnace and heated at a temperature of 500°C-550 °C
