We currently have a versacamm and heat press. We have been thinking about getting a 6C/4S screen printer. Our current setup is in a scrapbook retail store with 10' ceilings. Our space we built with with 8' walls so there is some open space to the rest of the building. We have the option in our lease to expand the square footage. Would we need to seal off the screen printing operation due to fumes?

Printing is not going to have near the fumes that you get coming off that versacamm. The only item you will need to vent is your conveyor dryer.
No one has complained yet about the versacamm and I believe one of the previous owners had some laser engraving equipment vented so I should be able to hook up to that.

The thing you may have to worry about is if you use spray tack on you pallets to hold the garment down. It tends to get every where and the lint from the shirts will stick to the spray tack. You probly dont want that on your other equipment, but you can get around that with using non areosol tack.

Most screen printing processes produce little or no fumes. If you ever decide to start discharge printing (which is becoming very popular) you may want to consider venting. Keep that in mind for any future decisions.
