Side hustles are becoming more and more common as folks realize the traditional 9 to 5 doesn’t cut it any longer. We all yearn for new ways to pursue our passions, buy the things we need or want, and lower our financial worries. It doesn’t take long once you calculate the cost of your living expenses to realize that there is barely anything leftover at the end of the month, which is not cool, at all.

Riley Hopkins 150 product and service review
I haven’t used my Riley Hopkins 150 yet! But I’m sure it’ll be great. A suggestion would be better instructions as it was a little difficult to understand building it. Another thing I suggest is having a miscellaneous parts bag only because I was missing quite of few things to put it together. I didn’t get my machine for over a month which I don’t agree with! If I waited over a month I would’ve expected it to be built and shipped built. I had a lot of confusion with customer service/shipping And the emulsion should be priced lower for a pint. I feel as though it’s like having a sample which paying 30 for a sample size plainly isn’t worth it. Overall I want to say if none of that happened it would’ve been a 5 star. I think the machine itself is beautiful. I love that it’s American made. It should definitely come with a table because it was a mission trying to find something good enough for the machine to go on.
Bought the ~200$ blue one from Amazon and when I put it together realized how terrible it was so I decided might as well drop a little more money and save the stress. This thing is perfect if you’re just getting started but still want professional level equipment! Easy to assemble and no tweaking or modifications needed to get a perfect print.

Great piece of equipment
Just while setting it up i must've said, "this thing is solid!" a hundred times. I used the video on youtube to build the press , i felt the instruction booklet needs to be updated, based on how shallow the instructions were. the video however was hands down. also one screw for the the hinge was an inch shorter than the others ,but it worked none the less. I am excited about getting some screens and getting back in it. (i used the cheap blue amazon special press to due projects in the past.) I've learn that in order to get good products for customers you must invest in yourself.
Michael, Wow! Just wow! We're so happy and flattered you've come to us to get the job DONE! The 150 was built with our customers in mind, and your words really hold true to the value and quality we have invested into this model. We apologize the instructions were a bit bare, but that kind of feedback is how we improve :) We appreciate it! If you have any questions about the process, or find that shorter screw needs to be replaced with the bigger one, please drop us a line in chats or give us a call! We want to help :) Thank you, Kayli B
It came packaged very well, was missing one of the bushings but customer service was right on it and got a replacement on the way. The assembly instructions were very easy to follow and it went together in very little time. The press is amazing, I am really glad that I bought it and would recommend it to anyone! Love the press and love the service here!
