When screen printing at home, it is often the rule to improvise with inexpensive solutions for professional grade equipment and tools. This is fine for messing around in the garage for fun and the occasional family band tee shirts. But when you want to step it up to the next level, having the right tools to do the job can be a great asset.
Many people ask me what does it cost to get into screen printing or how much money does it take to start a screen printing business. No matter how you ask it, the answer to that question will depend on your ultimate goals.
Visit the Catspit website and check out the Equipment Sales page to see what I recommend at the very least to start a business manually screen printing shirts. And don’t forget about all the consumables and hand tools or other miscellaneous items you will need to actually print.
I think for the most part, people don’t really understand what goes into screen printing a garment. There is a lot of work that goes into a simple screen print and it can be surprising to people how many different tools or machines are necessary.
But that is where I come in. I enjoy teaching those who wish to learn about textile screen printing. I enjoy screen printing very much and I get great satisfaction from happy customers and successful students. So… If you have any questions, just ask!
