Thread: Shopping List

  1. #1

    Default Shopping List

    I am planning to set up a screen printing shop in my garage. What all will I need? I want to keep it pretty bare bones and low budget for now. Just need to know the essentials.

    And you can screenrprint the labels!


    but yeah ... buy Andy's book, search the forums. This has maybe eleventybillion posts on it (give or take a few)


    Have patience, a sense of humor, and a high tolerance for all the booze you'll be ingesting.

    You guys obviously don't know what goes in to brewing. Not to mention the hop and barely shortages have made prices triple since I started homebrewing. So much for the excuse that it is to save money.

    I'm not looking to start a business. Just to print small scale for a hobby. I have printed before so I know what goes into it. I just don't know exactly what to buy as far as chemicals, inks and fabric for making screens. Also, I am unfamiliar with brands so any advice on those would be appreciated. I was also hoping that you guys would clue me in to tools that might make life easier.
