I’ve been looking for a printing press for a while now. I have experience doing shirts using my vinyl cutter and my heat press but now I’m looking for another route. After looking into different brands of presses I feel pretty confident in the two choices I have but I need the opinion of people with much more experience than what I have. Keep in mind that I’ve only worked with vinyl but and I have very little experience in the screen printing industry.
I've had a 8/8 Workhorse press for 10 yrs without any problems. I agree with footprint, very well made. Personally I like the rear clamps better than side clamps... gives more flexibility with positioning the screen. At times, I've put two pocket prints on the top of one screen and with the rear clamps am able to slide the screen completely left or right in the clamp. I can even turn the screen sideways if needed. Never had any problems with holding registration either. We don't do high end printing, just spot color. 4 color process could be a different story.
