Scrapbook Business Proposal

[ABC] is a paper manufacturing company that has made its mark in the paper industry due to the quality they provide. Different types and sizes of paper are manufactured and then transferred to different places for sale. It started the process of production with the white paper for printer use.

A fine quality of paper marked the success of the company and it also started other avenues such as printing papers for different books or notebooks for various schools. These school notebooks are different from plain paper as they include some sort of design on the cover page and on plain pages. These designs include the logo of schools or any other pattern which is approved by the administration of the school.

I joined the company as a designer and provide several designs to clients. After selection from the clients, the approved design makes its way to the cover page.  I chose the designing field due to the spark of creativity which always wants to do something unique.

For seven years, I have also loved the process of paper manufacturing and its transmission but now I want to move on and start something of my own. I have always thought of starting my own business which helps to spread love in the community. Therefore, I came up with the idea of introducing a scrapbook store in the industry as there are no other businesses of this sort.

I will be obliged if you give a read to my proposal.
