Smile Interested in Starting a Silk Screening Buisniess

Was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction to find info. about starting a silk screening Business.

I am a graphic designer in Michigan and am looking to start a business in my basement. I do TONS of designs for clients and figure instead of paying someone else to do the printing I could become an all in one operation. We have a local screen business that is difficult to work with - so local businesses are anxious for something new!

ANY info. (costs, equipment, advice, etc.) would be GREATLY appreciated!

a) 1 - 6 color / 6 station manual press
b) 1 - conveyor belt dryer
c) 1 - flash unit
d) 1 - exposure unit and a darkroom (to coat and store screens)
e) 1 - washout tank to wash out stencil and reclaim screens
f) 1 - table to stage shirts (or any other printable material)
g) 1 - table to fold shirts after printing
h) 1 shelf to store inks and squeegees

Costs: Shop around for the best prices - you should be able to get set-up for around $5000
