Ok, so my nephew and I are putting together a little screen printing shop in my garage.
We've built a vacuum table (24"X36"). I'll be building an exposure unit, and Spray Out Booth this week. Can you go through my list, and tell me what I'm forgetting, what I should consider, or any helpful advice you may offer
Things we need or want to purchase:
Hinge Clamps - Was going to go with some nice AWT micro Reg clamps, but now I'm thinking simple Speedball Clamps... Thoughts?
AWT - Sidekick (nephew says they're super handy to have)
Misc Squeegee sizes
2 - 25X36" Aluminum 200 mesh Screens
2 - 20X24" Aluminum 200 mesh screens
Emulsion - Would love your recommendations on brand, size (for best value) etc.
Franmar Chemicals - Emulsion Remover, Screen Degreaser, D-Haze, Scrub Brushes
And of course Inks... THis is where I have no experience... I personally have only used Plastisols, but we're not doing textile printing, so I'd love recommendations on good quality inks for poster and print making.
What am I forgetting?
What recommendations can you make to me, as I said we're just hobbyists with full time jobs, so this will be after hours fun, and maybe a few side jobs here and there.
Thanks so much! This forum has already proved to be an amazing resource.
