Or the best "screen printing octopuses" as we call them in the world of screen printing.
It is very common to have the confusion of not knowing which screen printing machine to choose, there are a lot of variety of options on the market, in addition to having the field of manual and automatic screen printing machines.
The answer depends on another question: How many shirts do you plan to print?
Planning with the future in mind is the key.
If our intention is to make t-shirts for ourselves, as a hobby, to start a clothing brand or to start a business from scratch then the best option is to start by using a manual screen printing machine.
If, on the other hand, we already have a business going, or we start a business from scratch but having a client portfolio and our printing forecast is around 3000 garments per day, then it is time to make the leap to automatic machines.
It all depends on our workplace. If at the moment we are working at home then we can choose the desktop option, but if we already have a room or large space to work in then we recommend standing screen printing machines.
