Wow there is a lot to know..



What type of screen printing press would be best?



I am looking at doing at least 6 colors. This is my real question. If I get a 6 color press what is he difference with the stations? I seen some that are 6 color 2 station, 6 color 6 station… what would be best for my situation…

As of now I will be the only one using it, but if things get moving I may have one or two other helping. So is the amount of stations important?

thanks

the amount of stations you have will dictate how many garments you can be pressing in one run before having to reload. If you have 2 stations you have a print station and a curing station if you have to cure ink between hits like in some multicolor jobs, if you have a 4 station you still have a print station and a cure station, but now you also have a loading station where someone can stand and load garments onto platens. Loading is something that a printer can do himself but in my experience usually messes up the ryhthym of printing, and also increases the chances you're gonna get ink on your garment. Short answer: more stations = better, particularly for multicolor jobs.
