Screen printing and Embroidery go hand in hand and would only benefit what you already offer, only by also offering screen printing you expand your clientele. Of course, by investing in a Printer go with a company that is also going to provide training, manuals and support.

* Warranty - How long and what is covered?
Read the small print, make sure you get the best warranty for your money and that you fully understand what is NOT covered.

* Training - Do they go to YOU and provide training on YOUR machine?
Most people buy these printers, go to the COMPANY and get their training but then get back to their own printer and forget half of what they heard in the training. It is best to receive training at your location on your printer so that you get the one on one experience and the information given is more likely to stick.

* Before buying a printer (as this is a BIG investment) start building the clientele now. That way the printer is already making you money before you make that purchase.

* Do they have a technician close to you?

Just a few things to ask before you decide. Feel free to call me if you have any questions.

Screen printing is a HUGE investment. Make sure you do your research. We started our embroidery business in 2003 and one year later purchased our first screen printing equipment not realizing everything that was invloved. You might look into finding someone that will contract print for you until you get comfortable with that side of the business. Let me know if I can help answer any specific questions. Good Luck!

My advice is that you need to check if you have enough orders which can recover the printing setup costs
