Welcome to our website. Here you will
find information to help you decide what type of silk screen
machine will best suit your needs. There are a wide variety of
choices when deciding what type of silk screen machine you're
going to purchase.
There are several things that
you need to consider before purchasing a silk screen
machine. Some questions to ask
How much space you have to operate it?
Do you have a limited amount of space? Some examples
would be if you only have a shed or garage to operate your
press in. This limited space will make it necessary to
purchase a smaller silk screen machine.
What are you going to use it
for? Are you just using it for personal use, like printing
shirts or artwork for family and friends? Or are you
going into business for yourself, where you'll be printing
large numbers of articles?
How often will you be using it?
If you only intend on printing occasionally as necessary, then
you'll want a silk screen machine that can easily be set up and
taken down. If you plan on printing every day, then you
may want something larger.
Presses: These are smaller presses meant to be
operated by one or two people. They're dimensions are
usually around 24 inches by 48 inches. There are several
different options in this size press, including everything from
a 1 station one color press up to 1 station 4 color
presses. These are great if you have limited space and
are generally very affordable.

available (meaning that they'll have 4-8 different screens
attached to the arms of the press). Ideal if you have a
bit of work space and plan on printing large quantities on a
Presses: A space saving printer/dryer setup
(although you can find these as just a press or just a
dryer). With a lowrider press, you can save a lot of
space... which will basically allow you to have all of the
ability of a manual pro shop press that only takes up as much
space as one car in your garage. This is perfect if you
want to do high volume printing, but are limited on
space. It also has the added bonus of a dryer to further
automate your process.
Presses: Automatic presses are a bit on the
expensive side. If you are operating your own business
and have several large projects or the need to do large numbers
of jobs on a regular basis, these can increase your production
levels by a significant margin. This type of silk screen
machine is rather large, so it isn't for you if you are tight
on space or don't have a need to press several thousand pieces
