It's all dependent on supply and demand. If there is enough of an opening in your area to get your foot in the door, you might make it profitable. HERE, custom work is beyond market saturated. That makes it harder to get work and drives the price down. It would only be worth it with large volume. The specifics of your operating area will dictate your path more than anything.

That is very true. I pay far less to have someone do my big bales and wrapped baleage than I could buy and maintain equipment. My volume in those packages is just not enough to warrant it. $10 for the balege and $14 for 3x3.
.

Just to further my point, you could get 4x5 rounds made here for $8 or less (usually $7.50) and 3x3s for $1.25 per foot. Half of the people here should quit or move somewhere else.
