So we've reached a few milestones I was working towards and have begun officially starting outreach and talking on client work. Technically we started doing client work back in January for friends that didn't want to wait, but now its official.

 

Anyhow, working to establish a solid roaster of good clients and steady work, so if you're somehow involved in purchasing screen printing or know of anyone that has a brand or business or might be looking for quality printing, please drop me a PM and I'll send you a PDF deck I just completed that recaps everything and shows recent work. Doesn't matter if its local, but probably only feasible to do work in the USA. For now, at teh very least I'm typically matching credible invoices and vendor quotes, all in, including shipping and 100% (if not saving people some money) and absolutely delivering better quality.

 

Website should be up in the next couple days as well.

@NightmareOnElmStreetSorry for not replying earlier, just seeing this.

 

Really its not worth the time to put something in press that is less than 100 pieces, but in truth probably 400+ is where it starts to be a decent gig. The press has a top speed of 1000 pieces an hour, though more realistically, production speed is 450 - 700 pieces an hour. Takes a good while to setup, depending on the complexity of the job.

 

Thats not to say we don't take small jobs of 100 pieces but being 100% transparent, its not really sustainable on my end to run small jobs.

 

Kind of like using a Bugatti to deliver newspapers.

Do you guys screen print Industrial work?  Control panels, boxes and such?  

 

PM me your capabilities.  Most of the work varies in size.  

Being honest, what we print on really doesn't matter up to a degree. After that, its just a matter of extra parts and configuration. Press we have is the top computer driven auto press on the market (tightest tolerances) and I imagine some presses out there are probably focused on this especially.

 

That said, I suppose us running it is a matter of how big the opportunity is. At the very least, its going to require specialty inks (assuming oil based) and some reconfiguration. Depending on what it is, we might need to make some modifications, so really comes down to whether its a just a couple needed or if you're a manufacturer or something and doing a steady volume on going.

 

Regardless, private message me some detail if you'd like to discuss.

If I order 4 or 500 pieces can i mix and match sizes and mens womens cuts and stay in close to the same price range per unit?

Private message me or email, but as long as the print remains the same, it doesn't really matter what size or cut / style the garment is. In fact, its a minimal settings change to go from tees to sweatshirts if its the same print, which is something we do pretty regularly.

Hey @misteravenare there going to be more 12oz t-shirts this summer? Do you have any plans for white ones? Do you ship to Europe?

Thanks!

Hey man, yes we regularly ship to Europe. (we dont upcharge shipping and do include extra stickers and stuff since you guys get charged quite a bit by the USPS).

 

This summer sort of went side ways since we got mega slammed by a big a client we'd been talking to, as well as a few other clients that have ramped up. That's why I've been MIA the last two months. Literally putting in 90hr work weeks and only now starting to see light at the end of the tunnel. I have some new patches in the works including a new packaging solution to them, as well as a ton of concepts, but likely those will start to roll out in Fall since I just dont have time personally or on press for a little while longer. Can definitely still use a hand, but we're getting things done.

Man I love the flicks of the operation. I still have my 4 color manual press. Wish I could help out. I can definitely attest to the quality.

Thanks man. Yeah, its been a wild ride, but we're producing pretty nice stuff on press and its been steady getting dialed in even tighter with every job.

not gonna lie @misteraveni have a good friend of mine who is extremely interested in getting a screen printing business going. he basically has the means and the funds while im mainly the creative aspect of it all. with this whole covid thing happening i lost my job in fine dining and probably wont be returning until spring 2021 IF that. at first i wasnt completely sold on it but with all these signs ive been seeing lately along with actually reading through this thread you've definitely given me some inspiration and confidence to follow through with it. props all the way around my dude for everything you've accomplished so far and will continue to accomplish im excited to see what else you got coming man. are there any tips, advice or recommendations on supplies needed to start out perhaps? i know you're busy with orders but if you ever get a chance or some free time shoot me a pm if you can it'd be greatly appreciated. keep up the great work man!

 

also if anyone out there happens to have an extra ch.0 forum tee hollaatchaboooiiiii..!

(i highly doubt it though but its worth a shot)
