Are you looking for technical help with equipment or the business side?

The heart of the process involves a fine mesh or screen that is tightly stretched around a rigid frame. If you have your heart set on starting your own screen printing business, the amount of difficulties you face in the initial stages should not bother you. The screen printing industry is on a growing path, and fresh opportunities are being available for new entrants every day. It is obvious that you will need kits to start your own screen printing business. A number of suppliers will be eager to supply you easy-to-use printing kits and setup packages to help you get started. They will also offer you after-sales service and technical support to solve any problems. You have to compare the prices and quality of the products offered by these companies before making your final choice. Ask yourself if there is a need for the product that you are going to produce. Also find out if there is somebody else who is taking care of your potential customers. Think carefully if you can overcome competition, if any, by offering lower prices or more timely delivery.

Hi Candars,
I guess the shop is totally running for production, maybe now is slow because the time of the year. Probably your husband will run the presses and you will be at the front desk.
Do you have only manual presses? I'll be glad to talk with you guys,
Good luck in your new business.
