Screen Printing Drinking Glasses and Mugs

While searching youtube hoping to find some videos on some DIY press or jigs to print cylinders, I found these.

If you can't move the frame, move the glass.

I am glad to have found this post here after doing a search on google regarding this subject.

I appreciate it's nearly a year old.

I would very much like to have a go at this, I imagine the registration is a nightmare to get right. Obviously they have done it a lot to get to that level.
Registration on a complex curve must be worse, although a wooden guide rail might help.

Is the ink epoxy for definate or could it be screen ink for glass?

I take it the halftone was the same as a sandblasting method. Would there be some sort of washout film used as I can't see any exposure units in the video.

Does anyone know of any more "training" video's like this maybe in English please or even a web site that I might get more information on what I would need to have a go?

Anyway, is anyone here doing this please that could give me some pointers or if anyone can give any guidance or help I would be grateful.
regards
Tony

Don't know I've only seen it on the website. One of our fellow screen printers went and saw it. He said he couldn't believe it, but it works. The owner took him over and screen printed some products so he could see them.

I contacted one of the companies that has the little screen printer for Bottles, glasses, and cups. Found it off the video link above.

Had to have my sister talk with them cause my spanish isn't that good. They sell for about $400 plus shipping.

I'm in the UK, shipping would kill me :-(
