Line Table Screen Printing
It is to screen print on a flat and long table. A printer moves along the table to print. This makes it possible to print long and continuous designs like a whole roll of fabric. But in our case, to load t-shirts, we use platens instead of the table.
Each method has its own advantages. Rotary press can perform better for large quantity bulk printing of single design. For printing small quantities of various designs, line table press is the way to go.
Lets' say that you want to sell t-shirts with your own designs. And you print all the designs for all the sizes, colors and styles of the garments. But chances are many of them will not sell. So, this is very costly and risky for a starting entrepreneur. What you should do is make screens of all your designs for line table screen printing. And make mock ups for all your products. Once someone buys any one of them, you screen print immediately that design on the sold size, color and style of the garment. This is only possible with line table screen printing. And we do this every day. How about with rotary press? Because of registration issues, you can never process that many small orders with rotary press. Basically, rotary press is only for large quantity bulk printing of a same design. Then how about the heat press? We think the quality of heat press is not the commercial level. How about plastisol transfers? Making plastisol transfers costs you considerable amount of money. But more importantly, the print durability of plastisol transfers can't be as good as "direct" screen printing. How about DTG (direct to garment) printing? DTG is too costly in terms of investment, production and maintenance. And they are not even fast enough unless you have about 50 of them.
It has commercial print quality good enough for high end fashion brands.

Yes, you can use plastisol, water based, solvent inks. Our press has the ability to adjust off contact for better printability.
Line Table Press
This simple and low cost line table press enables you to print multi color prints that are exactly registered. But more importantly, you can screen print IMMEDIATELY without spending time to re-register the screens before printing.
Yes, DIY line table press is doable. But we recommend line table presses that are built by actual experienced line table screen printers. If you want to save time and focus on the printing, it makes more sense to purchase it rather than making it from scratch since they are way more affordable compared to rotary presses.
Assembly of the steel structure is just simple and takes about 15 minutes. Please note that this product DOES NOT INCLUDE PLATEN. So, you use your own platen or make it for yourself like in this video:
You must have a sturdy wooden table to install this line table press. This is a table top press. And screen printing requires pressure to push inks. Therefore, you must secure the press with screw nails to the table. Here is a sample table bench. Its DIY materials are from Amazon:
Micro Registration Attachment
This is a screen frame attachment to control micro adjustments of the frame to register multi color screens.
Yes, it can be used with Aluminum or wooden frames. It can also be used with retensionable frames as long as they have flat frame side.
As many as your frames. This attachment stays with the frame(design) all the time so that whenever you have to use that frame it's ALREADY REGISTERED. Even though you can transfer it to another frame, we do not recommend that.
Yes, you can clamp the other side of the screen on the rotary press. In this case, the design will be turned too, of course. But if your rotary press has side clamps, you can use the same design both on the line table press and the rotary press.
Yes, you can. For wooden frames, simply unscrew it. For aluminum frames, grind off rivet heads with angle grinder.
