    Yes there is. First off what color t-shirts and what color inks are you using.
    Post the image and I'll try and help you through it

    Sorry I read it wrong. I thought it was table top where just the the top rotates and the pallet does not move.

    NO

    Now that I think about. I once did a 5 color job on a 4 color press, where I flashed 4 colors and changed screen with mark where each screen was to go and the black had enough trap so I could get away with it. It was Slow process.

    I've done some 4 color shirts on a one-color press.
    took 4 hours for 2 shirts.
    have fun!

    printing t-shirts sucks on many levels.
    even with a press.
