Tired of handing my dreams/ideas away (advice needed)

Postby TheNomad » Sun Feb 15, 2009 3:51 pm

Hello, I am new to the forum and could use some of your valuable wisdom.

So, after handing over damn near all of my good graphic designs and ideas to a small start up (a clothing line) I had enough. I decided to set up a 6 color manual, table top press to print out my own shirts at home. What I am looking for (and my questions are):

1) Easily transportable (I plan to do live printing at events etc) 6 color table top press. If I could find a great starter package such as this one, it would be incredible http://www.silkscreeningsupplies.com/si ... duct/1008P
What do you think? Is this a good deal?

2) I need to be able to do all over prints (is that possible with manual presses?) as well as be able to print on hoodies as well.

3) I can't afford a conveyor (dryer) at this time, is a flash dryer the closest I can get?

4) I am considering this offer: http://teeshirtprinterscom.ecrater.com/ ... id=2357414 . My only concern is how good of a press this is. If it does a good job, it would free up enough capital for me to be able to afford the rest of the materials needed.

I would appreciate any and every feedback. I need to make a decision soon.

Thank you,
TheNomad

You can get away with a lot with screenprinting - a bench and a screen is all you need really but I wouldn't start up and have a mobile shop.

You would probably have to build your own pallets if you want to do all over printing.
