Default A New Kind of Screen Printing Press? Meet EzPress: Open Source Semi-Automatic Screen Printing

EzPress + is a bolt-on unit designed for automated screen printing on a manual press. The goal is simple: create an attachment for manual presses that is affordable ($1,000), useful, and based on open-source principles like the 3D printing community. But actually executing that idea? It's difficult.

The leap from a manual to automatic screen printing press is huge. The capital, time, and stability required to go from manual to automatic printing has stopped the growth of many print shops – it's a make-or-break moment. Hundreds of used screen printing presses that shuttered print shops leave behind are evidence of that.

21 year old Cameron Maciel from Riverside, CA has identified and taken on this idea: the semi-automatic screen printing press.

Cameron grew up on his family's farm, working in his parents' businesses. Because of the challenging environment and limited resources, Cameron made his own solutions to vexing problems. What if there were a natural "next step" for businesses that want the consistency and speed of automatic printing without the high cost of entry?

His experiences with farming equipment made him a scrappy, resourceful creator:

"A lot of the farming equipment we used wasn't meant for the use we put them through. We buy the main component, then we make it better. [...] If it works, it works. If it doesn't, try again."

How EzPress started: Do we need semi-automatic screen printing?

Cameron was an entrepreneur from an early age. He started screen printing for clubs, teams, and organizations in middle school. He would work during the summer to save money for more screen printing supplies.
