Everything you need to start screen printing
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.
Worked perfectly except the kit lacked a yellow bulb. So when the instructions said to use the enclosed bulb, I was using the exposing bulb instead of a safe bulb! But I had watched so many of your videos, that I was able to do the emulsion coating process quickly and the emulsion product was forgiving enough, that I still managed to get a good print on the t-shirt. I do realize that this could have all been avoided if I had watched just the video that was for the kit I ordered, but then I wouldn't have been so inspired as I am to continue by watching all the more detailed videos also found on your web site. I would redo your DIY Print Shop Manual, but the videos are terrific! (Maybe that's the point, getting people to watch the videos . . . )
*A round of applause* Cindy! Thanks for sharing your photo - it looks like you took your DIY kit and created some really cool gear. We appreciate your review and hope to see more of your merchandise! -Ronald 1-800-314-6390
Great kit for the hard headed DIYer.
I'm not one to go back to a website and write a review, with that said here I am writing a review. I'm a big DIYer, so I was trying to build screens, order this, order that and then I saw after 5 failed burns that it was just not working for me. I was livid. I had seen screenprinting.com when researching and really got a lot of good information off of here. After my fail, I returned and to my good fortune the DIY kit was on sale. I received it today and got started immedantly. What a difference the right equipment makes, from the screen to the bulbs to the simply emulsion scoop. My first attempt at a burn came out great and within a few hours, from the unboxing to finished product, I had the 16 shirts for our family trip to the mountains done. Thanks for a great "dumb it down" kit for us hard headed DIYers who think they can do it all themselves.
