I'm sure you will get varied answers as to the time it takes. If you are only doing your designs and not printing other people's designs, and they are only one color, then it could be good to invest in screen printing.

If you have one color designs you can actually print them rather quickly, once you've invested the time up front. After making the screen, you can leave it taped, scrape off the ink and put it back in the bucket. You don't need to actually clean the screen off completely, the ink won't harden unless you leave it on for months and months and months.

If you wanted to print one shirt, it's as simple as grabbing your screen, putting in on your press, grabbing a little ink and a squeegee. It could take less than 5 minutes to do this. The most time you would be investing with each time you want to reprint a design is the time it takes to heat up a flash dryer or a conveyer dryer. Multiple colors is a different story, but if your work is more in the realm of single color jobs, screen printing could be a viable source for repeat one up orders.
