Beginning Screen Print CO.

Posted on Fri, 6 Oct 2006 at 18:41



I have no idea where to start. I want to learn how to screen print shirts so I can open my own company. Please someone tell me where I can find some cheap used equipment that is still of high-quality (tough combo to find... i know). What type of equipment should I be looking for? I need to know EVERYTHING and am eager to learn. Please help in any way you can...

Thanks,
EBZ

Until you learn more about the features you need and the cost of the equipment, you are looking for trouble unless you luck out.
Try the textile section, graphics printing (the forum heading here) is more about prin ting flat goods such as poster, signs, stickers, etc. T-shirts and textile are a different animal.

Good luck with your search - and seriously, get a job in a shop first so you can get an idea of what you are getting into.
