Love my new Riley Hopkins 4 color 2 station press just wish I would of went with the 4 station press my next press will be the 6 and 4 press. But this press is accurate and on point micros and holds reg very very good. all in all a good investment. before it was taking me hours yo print a few shirts on a 1 station cheap press. now its take me like 30 minutes to do 12 shirts and that includes setup. I want to thank Alan Flores for all the help and always being kind best screen printing friend I even met dude is super super cool.
Do not buy.
The knobs are terrible, they strip out horribly. I'm stuck paying for four more years on this crap. None of my heads will work without rigging it. This is the worst purchase I've ever made in my life. They won't send me the parts to replace it. I'm just very disappointed.

This was our first press and first time screen printing for our garage based business. We purchased lots of shirts for our online business, now we do them ourselves. This press holds perfect registration, we have done 500 shirt runs with it and had zero registration issues. Only 2 small disappointments. The screen clamp screws will strip out pretty easily so you have to be careful to not over tighten and the brackets on the platens are great, but if you order new platens, or different size platens they come with a larger, heavier bracket that is hard to get shirts over. Having a hard time explaining that I want to buy the same brackets that came with it for my new sets. Im really glad we chose this press as our first one, it was easy to learn and gave us a lot of growth room. 1-4 color is no problem, even 4 color process printing is a breeze on white shirts with this press. Once we upgrade to the next press, this one will stay in my shop and get used!

This is our first press and has served us from our garage to our new retail print shop. We do runs for others but primarily focus on our own clothing line.
<br>We have printed a lot of shirts on this with little to no issues with registration. In hindsight we may have gotten the 2/6, but then again most of our prints are 1 and 2 color.
<br>As the other reviewer said, once we upgrade this will remain in the shop as a go-to for some runs.
<br>My only challenge is I wish there was an option for extending the arms for the occasional outside the box print run. For example, we have to plan ahead on stencil placement if doing the same print on shirts and tote bags.
