Help me start my letterpress printing business

I have recently purchased a Heidelberg Windmill platten press and am starting a letterpress and design company. I am a Graphic Designer by trade so I have the skill, all I am lacking is some insight into creating a solid business plan and help with suppliers etc... within Canada. What experience do you have with getting plates made in Canada? Do you use Polymer plates? Ink Suppliers? Paper Suppliers? Getting die's made? Any information above and beyond is much appreciated.

What's the state of POD printing in the UK?

What's the options for POD printing in the UK? I want to setup a small poetry press and successfully used CreateSpace in the US for a previous book, but they don't sell in the UK. I know of things like Lulu, but are there companies that will do short-order runs (i.e. 50-100 books) if I give them an appropriately-formatted PDF?

Size matters

How can I print 34 lines of text so that it takes up exactly 6.125 inches? Or equivalently, so that each line is .18 inches. I tried different fonts in various word processors but always ended up a little to large or too small. There's probably an obvious way to do this using some easily available software (preferably free) but I can't seem to figure out what it is.

lorem ipsum

I need a book printer & binder - ideally the same company - in Northern California who is familiar with photography books. The publication may involve 4-color blacks, or black/silver traditionally litho-printed photographs and text on good paper, Mohawk superfine or something like that; hard and soft bindings may be necessary. Any ideas?

Help me batch print text files on the Mac

OS X: I want to batch print all the files in a source-code library. They are actionscript files, which means they are text files that all end in a .as extension. The files are in a complex directory structure (one root folder but files in multiple subfolders), and there are non .as files that I don't want printed. When the files print, I need some kind of separator ( spaces, asterisks, new page...) between each file. [more inside]
