Think of it as a BIG parking lot that needs to be repainted every week or two.

All I can tell you is that I have sold a 5hit ton of field marking paint through the years. Whether my customers made much money or not I have no idea, but they did it for years and always had work in the summer.

Most of the colleges and high schools in my area do there own in house line striping. The designs, logos and templates is where the money is at.

If it was something to pursue its more likely going to be with local businesses. The company im thinking of focuses on parking lots for various companies (Wal Mart, Target ect)

I used to charge 500 for initial setup, then 35 an hour for re-striping. I had the high school shop teacher cut out and frame my hash mark & end zone stencils out of plastic sheeting. I freehanded the 50 yard Logo. make sure you use the 3,4,5 method to square your field.
