COLORFUL PRINTS

The Riley Hopkins 150 4x1 Press allows printers to print up to four colors on one design. It’s important to know that the 150 press does not have micro registration. Micros allow making minuscule adjustments when registering complex jobs, like printing over an underbase, colors sitting side-by-side, halftones, etc. If you envision printing complex, multicolor jobs frequently, check out the Riley Hopkins 250 Press

The 150 is top-notch for multicolor jobs with loose registration (colors do not overlap). If you’re new to screen printing, sticking to one-color jobs or simple multicolor designs is a smart strategy while you learn the process.

FITS IN ANY SPACE

Printers who are starting a screen printing business usually set up shop in spaces available to them like sheds, spare rooms, garages, basements, etc. The beauty of the 150 press is its small footprint. The 1x1 is 20” by 40” and the 4x1 has a diameter of 60” (these measurements include the platen). No matter the space you’re working in, the 150 will fit.

If you need to make every part of your shop multifunctional, consider putting the press on the Single Station Press Cart. It doubles as a table that the 150 can be drilled into and as screen storage. Opt to have pivot casters and you can move the entire contraception around your environment. It’ll raise your level of performance.
