If screen printing offered you the path to a better life, would you take it?

Let me ask you…

Do you dream of one day screen printing your own custom t-shirts? Or launching a clothing brand? Maybe a lucrative screen printing business?

It’s a dream a lot of people have. Sadly it also stays a dream. Why?

Because in order to do so, you’ll need a multi-colored press. And sadly, this is where dreams begin to fade because:

If you find yourself in any of the situation above, don’t worry, you’ve come to the right place!

My name’s Alex and I’m a self-taught screen printer and DIY enthusiast.

Today, I’m going to show you how easy it is to build a multi-colored screen printing press using tools and items you probably have at home or in the garage.

I’m going to teach you how to construct what people pay hundreds for, for less than $50 bucks!

Sound good?

Awesome! Let's start!

Now as you already know, the concept of a rotating press is pretty straightforward.

There are (usually) 4 arms holding up the screens. All I do is rotate the colors according to what I want to print. Easy. Plus, I can get a ton of blueprints and guides from the net that will elaborate on the details, right?


That’s exactly what I thought too, until I started to build my own press.

You see, having all this available resource means getting exposed to everything – good and bad information. And things will get very overwhelming, fast!

I remember feeling inspired and excited at first, until I realized that most of the stuff I read, was pure junk!

Here’s the problem.

Sure, there’s a lot of people who built their own press but that does not mean it will work for you. Why?

Because they are building it for themselves, not you!

Some are using obscure parts – stuff they can find from their local hardware store, some have a large space, some have technical woodworking skills, some already have the tools, et-cetera.

Honestly, most guides were so complex I felt intimidated (and even more confused) just looking at it!

Let me save you some time

After spending weeks mulling over these guides, I decided to stop.

I decided to build a 1-color press from whatever information I had. In less than 24 hours, I was printing like a professional!

The 1-color turned out great, but I outgrew it the same week I built it. Trust me, you can only go so far with a single press.

So I started on the next project – a 4-color 1-station press.

I built, tweaked and modified this workhorse and is the press that I’ve based my entire guide on.

Here's why my press will always work...

Components that are easy to construct

Cheap and readily available parts

Easier to assemble than an Ikea shelf

Prints as good as a store bought press

knew exactly what needed to go into building a great press.

If I arrived at something that did not meet the 4 requirements above, I scraped the idea and went back to the drawing board.

Today, after years of tweaking and modifying, and of course getting feedback from the screen printing and DIY community, my press is a powerful workhorse!

This guide is a compilation of all the hard work I’ve put in!

It’s got everything – from my tested methods, tips to explain why I’ve done things a certain way and a complete list of tools and materials to help you prepare, plan and budget!

This guide will definitely give you the head start I wish I had!

So let me save you weeks of research, hundreds of dollars and your sanity!

What people are saying

Word got out a few months after I started building my press. By then, my plans were already circulating in a forums and many were using it to build their presses.

I can’t forget the day I got an email from a community member who wanted to make a donation to say how much he appreciated my efforts. It was the same day I posted it up on a tiny site called eBay.

My little sales experiment gave me quite a surprise. Not only did I have a chance to meet other enthusiasts, but I realized I was helping people reach their goals faster!

Exactly what I wanted - to see if it's something I could do without spending tons of money! Thanks for the pictorial guide!
