Great Kit to Get Your Feet Wet!!!!

by -

Awesome kit, it had everything I needed to get starting in screen printing. The DVD was extremely helpful. As another comment said I would definitely use a pressure washer and order dehazer for the ghost image.

Perfect for newbie with limited funds

by -

If you are not sure if screen printing will work for you I recommend this kit!! Like the notes say you do need other supplies. I HIGHLY recommend a pressure washer to re-claim the screen(1300-1600 PSI) and buy the de-hazer for removing the ghost image. The dvd and youtube vidoes are super helpful. Only reason why this is not a 5 star rating is the wood screen. I did not notice it was slightly warped until trying to set my off-contact. And after coating with emulsion there seems to be a line shaped like a mountain running across it width wise. It did not show up in my print, but i assume it is a random mesh strand that got stuck in it.



Advice to SSS.com- PLEASE offer a 16X16 platen, squeegee, coater upgrade for $20-30 more dollars.

I Love Screen Printing

by -

I just finished my first silkscreen with my starter kit and I LOVE IT!! I am a total screen printing convert. I loved the 2-day seminar I took with Ryan and the team. It was a great investment! Feel free to put my recommendations on your site or anywhere you want to because I love Ryonet!

Starter Kit - I'm so glad I bought it!

by -

I normally don't take the time to go back and write reviews, but I am SO thrilled with my hobby kit that I just had to. I purchased the hobby kit with extra ink and and screen, along with the econo flash dryer. However, you don't have to purchase any extras because the hobby kit literally has everything you need to start screen printing. I have never screen printed or seen it done or even gone to a screen print shop. I just got the bright idea that I was going to make some shirts and a google search led me to Ryonet. On my 3rd try, my screen image came out perfect (my problem was my film positive wasn't dark enough to effectively block out the light, so I put it through my printer twice and that fixed my problem). I am not technical or even crafty, so I was seriously shocked at how easy this was to do. I would recommend watching the video and listening closely - you will easily avoid some first-timer mistakes this way. After making a shirt, I got an order to make shirts for my cousins baseball team and made more money than I spent on the kit! Plus I have lots of supplies to make more shirts with! I couldn't be happier :)))

Everything you need to start screen printing

by -

I asked for this kit as a Christmas gift. I chose this kit with the intent of occasionally printing small runs of t-shirts as a hobby. I have to say I'm very impressed with this package, although it has a few small things I would change if I were re-ordering it now. I'm posting this review in the hopes that I can convince prospective buyers to consider spending a little extra money in order to get an even better result.







1. Upgrade to aluminum screens. The wood-frame screens are OK, but after exposing a screen three times and reclaiming/cleaning twice, the corner joints of the frames have taken on water and swelled so badly that the corners are warping. Aluminum screens don't seem to cost too much more, and shouldn't give you any moisture-related problems.



2. Upgrade to the platen bracket, and consider getting a different platen or two. The bracket allows you to quickly change platens, as well as adjust the position of the platen relative to the screen, which could be useful when using different size screens. A platen with a neck would be very helpful if you're planning to primarily print shirts.



3. Definitely get the extra inks package.







Assembly of the press is simple and straightforward, takes about 15 minutes and a minimum of tools (a screwdriver and a 1/2" wrench). It takes a little more work to dial things in if you're new, but the Ryonet video (the whole thing is available on YouTube if you don't want to use the included DVD) walks you through everything. After watching the video, I had no problems coating a screen and getting my artwork developed. Ryonet's help desk is also a great resource for the beginner. Don't hesitate to call or reach out to them online for help.

Wow! This is fun...and profitable too. :)

I purchased the starter kit before Christmas and we made our first shirts/hoodies over the holidays. They were beautiful if I do say so myself... The information available from Ryonet was amazing and any questions from customer service were answered promptly. I am impressed with this company and the fact that they support what they sell. I am now working on a few orders from friends already. Thanks Ryonet!

I couldn't be happier

by -

Hi my name is Mat Brown and I ordered the Starter Kit a few weeks ago with a few upgrades and was just able to make my first prints today... I just wanted to tell you guys that I am thoroughly impressed with the quality of the press, platen, screen, and mostly the water based inks!!







My first prints were a huge success and I couldn't be happier that I chose to use Ryonet as my silk screening supplier! Thank you for all of the education you provide with the kit and the YouTube videos were huge as well... I also got the 6 hour Screen Printing 101 DVD that gave me all the confidence I needed to successfully print today. I will DEFINITELY be ordering more equipment soon, and maybe even upgrading to the 4 arm press within a month or so...







I also had some info that might help more customers with printing their transparencies... I used an at home inkjet printer and the first print wasn't dark enough and wouldn't wash out the emulsion... So I decided to try and double print feeding the same transparency back through and it worked magically!! Perfect amount of darkness for burning. I have read numerous forums about this topic and figured that you would be the best way to share this info since Ryonet is the largest silk screening provider in the U.S.







Thanks again for everything!

Great kit to get started

by

This is an awesome kit. I love it! It was shipped quickly and I received it in a few days. I've already printed a few shirts and people seem to like them. This is a great purchase if you're wanting to start a name/brand for yourself or just for fun. I had no problems with anything after watching the DVD, I was able to do everything in my living room and bathroom. I recommend this to anyone!

Starter Kit - Best investment ever!

by

I bought this kit last year to try something new. I have never made a screen print before, nor knew how the process works. With the killer package, instructions, and ease of use I was making my first prints within hours of opening the box. 1 1/2 years later I still use this "starter kit" daily, and have produced in excess of 22,000 prints on this press. All original parts function perfect, even the little light bulb that comes with it. I of course have purchased more inks (plastisol is awesome!) as well as a few additional screens. Highly recommend this system.

Better than Speedball

by

I did a lot of print making in college and wanted to get my own setup at home. The arm works great. The ink is incredible. I had previously used Speedball inks and they would constantly clog the screen. I also would constantly have to reapply Speedball inks to the screen. I do not have that problem with the Pitch Black ink. The ink is incredible and I am totally sold on continuing to use that. The screen is good as well. The frame has not warped on me yet. The emulsion remover works very well and the sponges are great.
