If you need for up to 200 glasses per month I would advise you to sub contact it.
By the time you buy machine, ink, air compressor, plates, oven (don't forget you have to bake them) you will be so much in red that 200 peaces per month will take a loooong time before you are back in black.
Don't forget that there is steep learning curve (with a lot of hair pulling) for glassware printing and it will take a lot of your time.
If you decide to go down that road, I would advise you never to get manual pad printer. You will end up going nowhere and most probably you will toss it at the end.
If money is an issue, at DigitSmith you can get good second hand semi automatic one for few hundred bucks.
If money is not great issue go with new one. I would contact Tom at WinonUSA. His machines are of great quality and his knowledge is priceless. He will be there for you to guide you and help you when you are stuck and trust me, there will be a lot of such instances

That is true to some degree.
Ink that is designed for printing on metal and ink for glass and ceramic will air dry on glass after few days providing that is not to humid or to cold, but if you want for print on glass, and to be dish washer safe you have to use ink for glass and ceramic and to bake it straight after printing.
At least, I am not aware of any ink manufacturer that will guarantee for their ink to be dish washer safe unless it has been baked.
