Anonymous: Hi there, I was just wondering... approximately how much did your screen printing setup cost? were the burner, frames and squeegee included? ps. i love your work!
Hey there, Anonymous. I get that question every now and then and it’s actually hard to answer. My setup isn’t so much a set as it is cobbled together. The press I have was used but it’s a tabletop that I think is originally from ebay. I think the cost of the press new is around $400. I got a super deal on the flash dryer and squeegees from a guy liquidating his business (and honestly can’t remember how much I paid). For a long time I printed small and used a heat gun. That got old fast, but it does work. I use a modified lighting system as an exposure unit. Screens are around $30 a pop but are fairly durable and should last you a good number of jobs. Thanks for stopping by!
