OK, I want to say thank you all for all of the wonderful information and help in this entire ordeal. Paypal refunded my money for everything except the $125 to ship it back to the seller. He has filed an appeal so it could be reversed but right now I'm happy that's hopefully over. Next bit of awesome news is I got my 4/2 silver press and I LOVE it!!! I completed my shirt order and everybody went crazy over them. I also just did some experimenting with the new water based Comet white ink from Ryonet--it was half off on cyber Monday The shirts for CHRISTmas presents look amazing! I printed the white water based ink on red, navy, and pink t-shirts and hoodies and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. The BEST thing about it though is the clean up (the soft hand is a close second). So far I'm totally digging the water based ink...or at least the Comet white is a winner! Thanks again for everything. It's amazing how less frustrating screen printing is with a decent press. I've got zero complaints with the silver press. The tilt adjustment makes setting perfect off contact (and therefore a nice sharp print) a breeze!

So far so good but I'm in the process of washing some so we shall see. I used my flash dryer to dry first. I did it several times for probably 3 minutes each time (I let the shirts rest in between the flashes so it wouldn't scorch). Then I put them in the dryer on the high heat setting for 40 minutes. I hope it hold because it was super easy to print and the cleanup was AWESOME!
