would like to move up a gear and offer a screen printing service, then
talk to us as we can offer a good choice screen printing machines and
accessories at affordable prices.
We mainly supply floor standing carousel systems starting from four
colours and going onto six colours. When we talk about the number
of colours on a machine, what we mean is how many screens the machine
can hold at a time All machines will have four print boards.
The screen printing process uses inks as compared to transfers with heat
presses. The number of colour on a t-shirt will dictate the number of
screen required on a screen printing machine. In order to print
multi-colour images onto dark t-shirts, we would recommend going for a
five colour machine as a minimum and ideally the six colour machine.
In our starter kit, we include everything from the screen printing
machine, spot dryer (to dry the ink), exposure unit to 'burn' images
onto the screen right through to chemicals, screens, squeegees, start up
books, DVD's etc. The only extras which you will require items such as
graphics software, laser printer (for creating artwork), and of course
your own PC.
Screen printing is relatively easy to master although more complicated
work will require greater skills to master. Practice makes perfect.
With screen printing, the cost per producing t-shirts is lower when
compared to using a heat press. However, screen printing is only more
economical on order of around 50+ of the same design. Nothing comes
close to the quality that can be achieved by the screen printing process
as well as the print durability.
For someone who would like to be able to tap the full market
potential for a t-shirt printing service, the ideal scenario would be to
opt for, both, our heat press and screen printing starter kits.
