Screen printing machines Perth

pc060213.JPGThis post has been a long time coming. Some of you may remember that late last year, we made some OneTwenty shirts so that we could all match at the Perth Massive.

I wrote about our initial failure and then our eventual success in screen printing our own shirts. A big part of our success was getting the right equipment. It was fairly easy to buy a silk screen and fabric paint, but the real key was finding somewhere in Perth that stocked photo emulsion.

There is a photo of their fabric printing supplies shelf in. Their paint and screens were reasonably price, but they didn’t stock photo emulsion so we had to look elsewhere.

pc060208.JPGAfter much driving around and talking to various print suppliers, we ended up at Sericol at 209 Railway Road in Subiaco. They’re are more of a sell-to-business store than a sell-to-the-public store, so they only have a small display shelf and all items are kept out the back somewhere. Here’s a photo of the display shelf:

I circled the photo emulsion in yellow. It’s good stuff; pre-sensitized so there is no need to mix in sensitizer before using it. The container also contains quite a lot; I don’t see us buying any more for a long, long time.

Here’s a screenshot of the building so you know what to look for while driving down Railway Road:

Note: This post probably looks like an advertisement, but we really could not find anywhere else to buy photo emulsion. There may be places online, but we didn’t have time to wait for an order to arrive!

Pad printing

I had thought that the ink might eat up the wiper blades, but since that is the only thing that I had on hand that could give me a clean streak free wipe that is what I went with, I may break down and actually order some real doctor blades. I will have to look into the screen printing blades, they might work.
I am planning to make my own plates using etched glass for the plates (I own a glass etching business)since glass is extremely flat and polished so it should make good plates, and it is cheap, at least for me.
I really don't have any plans for what I am going to use it for once I have it built but I am own several lasers and plan to make wood model kits and toys and feel that I could make many more things if I could offer them as finished toys rather than unfinished which is why I started looking into screen and pad printing
