      Hey guys!
      New to this forum, I'm looking for advice and I'm just getting started screen printing. I read some info about this stuff and I think about buying a screen printing machine. I would be really grateful for any advice because I'm absolutely newbie. Currently choosing from these options, but I'll consider any other options you recommend, thanks in advance!

      The common theme I see, and hear from others, is to buy quality equipment especially the press. I'm all about this. My question is what is the minimum level of quality that is generally acceptable? I know each press has its purpose but I plan for this to be more than just a hobby but don't anticipate high volume for quite some time. So I'm wondering does something like a Riley Hopkins 4X4 tabletop with Micros fall into this category or should I really focus on saving for a 300? Keep in mind I am all about getting and maintaining the best registration and quality possible. I will not sell anything lackluster.

        Hey there! Both are awesome presses! Really what we generally do is look at where you want to be in order to make a solid recommendation for press and more. My wife and I started with a Jr (tabletop) and did great on it building our business. All of Riley presses are quality - The primary difference is the ability to produce more in less time and with greater consistency. Please feel free to email me! I would love to learn more about your goals! [email protected]
