Lightbulb Want to get started in Screen Printing... literally know nothing about it! Advice?

Hi my name is Eric, and I want to get into T-Shirt printing. Letís lay all the cards on the tableÖ.

Iím not really sure how to go about it. Iím sure I want to do black shirts with graphics and text.

I want to do an online thing, thatís my dream for the last 3 years, and then stem into a shop.

I was working pretty steady towards my goal to have my credit and life ready for this until a few months ago when I took a hit at work and ended up having to give up my car. Iím sure my credit sucks beyond terrible.

I still have the dream.

So I have no money, lousy credit, and a pocket full of dreamsÖ but it could be worse. I could have the first two without the third

Iím looking for Sage like advise. I fully intend to move forward with this even though it seems everything from the economy to my career is ready to crumble.

I know nothing about screen printing past what the name intones.

What do you use?

Do you like it?


Bear in mind that if I print a shirt a day to start Iíll be blown out of the water amazedÖ

So whatís cheap to get started?

What will I need?

I saw a screen printing jobberdo at a crafts store for like $300, would that be a good start?
