Default Re: 4 color 1 station Screen Printing Press Help

The best advise I can give you is don't get in a rush to buy something that your going to out grow quickly. Do a fund raiser or just save your money until you can afford to spend enough to get a press with more than 1 station, you won't regret buying a press with more stations I guarantee it. Having more stations means you don't stop production while flashing you will be printing the next shirt, and the next shirt and so on while your flahing your colors probably doubling your output. If it were me I'd go 6 color with 4 colors you can only do process prints on white, if you have 6 colors u can use 5 of the 6 colors for process prints on dark colors. You would have (1) white underbase (2) cyan (3) magenta (4) yellow (5) black not necessarily in that order but you get the idea 4 color process on dark colors 90% of the time is gonna require 5 colors. Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it forcing you to abandon your operation to have someone else print a job that your press will not allow you to print.
