    Talking of Screen Printing. Anyone use Goccopro?

    Looks very simple.

    I looked at it a while back and it's what sparked my interest in screen printing again. I think it maybe has its place but for me there were too many limitations, screen size, registration on multi colour mainly etc. I just went down the normal route. Far more challenging to make your own screens but far more enjoyable!

    Certainly a good way to add single colour work to an existing business.

    That's what I though. Single colour. There's a supplier just next to who can print the screens. Set up becomes only a few hundred and screens can be collected on the same day.

    Just to find some space....

    I did miss one of the co's in my first attempt.

    As I'm currently making 15x t-shirts cut from 123 Flex. This machine would be a saviour. Not to mention the design would have plenty more detail.

    Yes, that's where they appear to be aimed at primarily. I thought the same, having worked (a little) many years back in screen printing I'd hankered to have another go. I saw this and thought the same as you. Before I knew it I was looking at 2 colour, dryers and that's the way it goes. Screen printing is difficult to 'dip' into. I know have a 6 colour/6 station Riley Hopkins but it's a big commitment.

    Natural screen printing looks a bit like witchcraft to me.

    Entirely based on printing acetates. Sounds nonsense.

    I make my own positives using an Epson 1500 with Blaquer ink installed, works a treat. I ran a screen making dept. many years back and I remember the lengths the art dept. went to making my positives back then, so much easier now.

    Another option is just to have a single colour setup and get someone to expose your screens for you.
