That seems ok. But the press is a little small, so is the dryer. I would check digitsmith and see what you can find. I bought my setup for half of that and got a 6 color 6 station press!! I didn't get a conveyor dryer and found one on Ebay for a great deal. You have to start somewhere.... In today's economy with shops closing often you can find a great deal if you have the time to look for one.

The Ad says $4,000.

You can buy a 4 color 2 station manual press from Ryonet (www.SilkScreeningSupplies.com) for a lot less. Then buy a Exposure unit for about $300 to $350. Flash Dryer for $350, and Conveyor for $1500.

So about $3,000 brand new. You could even ask for a free training class. They'll also through in videos.
