Hello and welcome! Now, before we go any further, I’d like you to take a second to read the questions below:
Do you want to start making money by printing and selling t-shirts?
Do you want to print multiple colors on t-shirts, posters, tote bags, cloth, etc?
Are on a tight budget and need a cheaper alternative?
Do you have limited space for a regular screen printing press?
Are you tired of wasting time looking at complex and confusing plans on the internet?
If you answered YES to ANY of the questions above, I have just the thing for you!
My name’s Alex and I’m a self-taught screen printer, business owner, and DIY enthusiast. Today, I’m going to show you my proven step-by-step plans to building a screen printing press by using tools and items you already have in your home or garage. I’ll show you how easy it is to construct what people are paying hundred$$$ of dollars, for less than $50 bucks! Sounds good? Then read on!
The Web is Full of Contradicting & Confusing Facts
I had spent countless hours and tiresome weeks researching websites, reading forums, and mulling over manuals, plans, and guides from all over the net – you probably know what I’m talking about!
In the beginning, things were great and exciting when I decided to build my own screenprinting press. However, I slowly got sucked in to ‘information overload’. Most of what I found were conflicting and just pure junk!
Some plans needed a large space to build; some required complex or complicated parts, others would costs a significant amount up front, and more often than not, I felt discouraged and unmotivated. To make things worst, I managed to convince myself that I needed to read more. In fact, all I was doing was ‘busy work’ – a simple excuse to feed my procrastination. This was truly blocking any progress.
Building a Functional & Cost- effective Solution
After 8 long weeks, I decided that I couldn’t sit in front of my computer and waste precious time. I had to make my move now so I decided to build my own screen printing press with whatever information I got.
Over the next week, I build a 1-color press from scratch. I modified it with tips I got on the internet and that turned out great! For a few days…unfortunately, I outgrew its functionality within the same week.
With enough experience to make a brilliant 1 color press, I started building a 4-color 1-station press. This was the first prototype that I had tweaked and modified to become the actual press of which my guide is now based on.
In building the press, I kept 4 things in mind:
- every movable part had to be simple to construct
- it had to be cheap and readily available to use
- it could be taken apart and refitted as easy as an Ikea bookshelf
- it could produce results like any entry level press in the market
If I arrived at something that did not meet the 4 requirements, I scraped it and went back to the drawing board.
Today, the press has gone through countless tweaks, modifications and enhancements. Most suggestions and feedback came from friends, the online screen printing community and other DIY enthusiasts. This guide is a compilation of all the hard work I’ve put in, complete with the best methods, techniques, tips, and virtually everything I’ve ever done from day 1. This guide will definitely give you the head start that I didn’t have!
Community Support And What Others Have Said
From a few discussion threads, people came to know what I was building. By the time word got out, my press was a pretty solid workhorse. Those who were interested had requested for a copy of my plans so I gave them to a few close friends.
Not a week went by and I received a random email from a community member who got hold of my plans from one of my friends. He acknowledged my efforts, and had asked for my Paypal address to make a small donation as a token of his appreciation.
I’ve been offered money before, but this time it confirmed my thoughts of putting up the guide for sale. It didn’t take me long to rewrite a new version, and soon after, I posted it up on a tiny site called eBay.
My little sales experiment gave me quite a surprise. Not only did I have a chance to meet other enthusiasts, but I realized I was helping people reach their goals faster! Here are what some people had to say on Ebay after buying the guide:
“Thanks *so* much for this pictorial guide! It’s exactly what I was after- to see whether this was something I’d be able to do without spending loads of money!” – Brekkon MacKenzie
