I just bought my first semi auto flatbed printer and well my intentions for it are for printing corrogated signs. Well my question is, what all can the press be used for besides signs. Can you make it somehow pirnt t-shirts or anything else. I figured maybe posters but not really interested in posters.

Does it have a vacuum printing area? If so you can do plastisol transfers :)

Well a flatbed is a fantastic add on to any print shop. As mentioned before you can print plastisol transfers with it. Also what we are doing is printing plastic bags for t shirts and decorative cardboard boxes (with solvent ink both). It's also good for printing paper and cotton bags. We are even adding with it gold or silver lettering to our offset printed business cards:)
