  • Looking for the Best Manual Screen Printing Machine

    I am launching a clothing line and trying to find out what the best machine for a newbie would be? At least a four color machine, or is it cheaper and easier to contract out the printing?

    I mean, unless you really want to dive in and have tons of money, time and energy to invest in learning a new craft, it is definitely cheaper to contract the printing. You need more than just the press - conveyor dryer, flash unit, ink, exposure unit, washout system, way to prepare separations.. That said, if you are serious about this, I would recommend the Riley Hopkins 4 color 1 station press as a way to dip your toes in the water without risking too much. If you want a nice press that won't let you down, check out Vastex. I have been using a Vastex 8 color 8 station manual to run my shop the last 4.5 years and have zero complaints. Will cost a lot, but that's the price you pay for consistency, reliability, and quality. A press like the Riley Hopkins won't have any micro adjustments, and is very bare bones to say the least - most printers could consider it a toy press - but you have to start somewhere

      I am also interested to start screen printing one color one station for start and I have read that you can dry the ink with heatpress or a heatgun!Is it possible?
      After checking this review TECHTONGDA 6 Color 6 Station Screen Printing Machine seems very premium to me and thinking to buy this one.
