I have recently recieved a Print A Press pad printer, which I would love to incorporate in my current screen printing business. I have contacted print a press to try and purchase informational video, and/or iinstructions on how to get started using this equipment. They will not provide the info. since I did not purchase the equipment from them. I am looking for some one to teach me, sell me, let me borrow what ever information on how to make plates, and use this pad printer. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Thanks Charles, I forgot to put in that the model is a QM5. As I understand, 6 and/or 7 instructions for most of the applications are the same. It is a 2 color printer. Thanks Kim

The press was in a lot of things that I bought when I bought the equipment for my screen printing shop. I had a little trouble with the seller, and a year or so later I am just getting the rest of the items I purchased which included this machine. If you know anything about it, or how I can get instructions would much appreciate it.

Me, too! Me, too! I recently purchased a QM6 Pad printer and not all of the instructional tapes were included...namely, how to burn a plate! If any one has the DVD's they'd like to burn/share, I'd REALLY appreciate it!

Sorry to hijack this thread, but I didn't want to start a new post when this was already there.

Thanks!

It is against forum policy I think to share dvd or other proprietary info... Or so I have been told...If you send me your direct email via PM...I will forward to someone within Press A Print to see if they can help you

Did you get any help with instructions on the QM5? I have one too and press a Print is just no help. Also do you have any information on where to purchase inks and supplies?

Thank you

No, and no. :(

I found a youtube video on how to make the polymer plates, but I'm not sure it's the same thing that is included with the supplies I got. I am doing a lot more with the screen printing, so I haven't looked a ton for the stuff for the pad printer. I'm pretty sure Printa has everything we'd need in terms of supplies...

I did a search and found some detailed info on wikopedia.
Here's the link : Pad printing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hope this helps you all :)


I was also thinking that if this doesn't answer all your questions, you could take the approach of contacting the company ,as an interested party, (yeah, bluff) in a possible purchase, and do they have a dvd that they could send you so you could see what these processes entail. Worth a shot.
