Default First Screens

What is a good package or arrangement/assortment for a first buy of screens? Where are some good options to buy? What meshes should I have to start out with?

depending on what you going to be printing but starting out 110 and 156, you can get pretty good detail out of a 156.

I would say get some 110 and 156's also. Good starting point. You can do nice white with a 110 and get some good detail with your other colors on the 156
