With more than 40 years of developing high-quality, affordable presses, the Riley Hopkins brand has sold the most manual presses in screen printing history. It has jumpstarted thousands of printers’ careers with presses that are built like race cars. Shift your shop into second gear with the new Riley Hopkins 250 Press.

The 250 has many features that makes printing streamlined. Most notable is the addition of tilted micros. The tilted micros ensures screens stay in place during production, minimizing the worries of accidentally bumping the screen out of registration mid-production. The 250 now also has locking levers, the same as the 300 press. The locking levers make it easier to tighten and loosen registration, enhancing the precision of registration while lessening the stress on your wrists. Lastly, the 250 is all black! That’s right, we’re back in black.

Perfect for printers looking to run their production in a garage, spare bedroom, or basement, the press is easy to set up. First off, the press comes to you 90% preassembled. To put together the rest of the press, all you need is one Phillips head screwdriver, two ½” wrenches, and two 9/16” wrenches. That’s it. You’ll have the press up and running in minutes. Screw the press onto a spare table or bench, or place it on a Riley Hopkins Cart, which holds six screens and has heavy duty retractable casters for mobility and semi-permanent placement.

The 250 is fantastic for printers up and coming. Best of all, the 250 can continue being an integral piece of equipment in your shop as you grow. When you’re ready to move up into a Riley Hopkins 300 or even automatic, the 250 can be used for smaller orders, overflow jobs, live printing, and more. The 250 will forever be a handy press as you expand your business.

The flashy, all-black press makes print precision affordable with the upgrades of titled micros and locking levers. Breakout from the pack with the Riley Hopkins 250 Press.

      Riley 250 4/1 Review

      Hello and Happy Printing to you all, I purchased my Riley 250 4/1 mid-late last year. This press has made my screen printing journey so much more easier as the press is super dependable. I don't have to worry about tilt or registration and thinking that the press won't hold them. I do regret, however, hesitating about buying the press initially when I looking over presses to purchase; please, don't waste your time as I did, buy this press and you won't regret it. It's durable, sturdy, heavy, reliable, looks, and feel, professional, but most importantly does everything its promise to do, plus super easy to setup and get printing. I hope this review is helpful to someone looking to upgrade their workshop. Happy printing friends!

      Sturdy, easy to assemble!

      Ordered this on a whim after having the DIY kit, and was a major upgrade. This machine is very sturdy, and all the parts seem to be machined very well. It's kind of heavy, so you may need help moving it after it's assembled. I recommend assembling it where you intend to install it and this won't be an issue. Comes in two boxes, took about a week to come in. Some details- one person can assemble this alone, just don't rush it and you'll be fine. All the parts come well wrapped and in individually wrapped packs that are labeled, which made this easy. You hear them say, "you need a 9/16" wrench" like 100 times in their videos. Well, guess what. This kit even comes with the 9/16" wrench! Top that! I had it put together in about 35 minutes, and that was without rushing. I could have done it faster. Seems to be a very good purchase. Can't wait to make some money off this machine.

      So Glad I Took The Plunge

      I had debated on whether to upgrade from my homemade wooden press and hinge clamps to a larger press so I could do multiple color orders. Would I be able to do this? Would it be worth it? YES. Yes, it has all been worth it. This press came in two boxes and it was relatively easy to put together. Using YouTube as a reference as well, I was able to learn all about the XY Micros, Tilt, Off Contact and more. I'm elated with this press. I only wish I would have really bit the bullet and purchased the 6x4, but that would require more room in my basement, and I am almost to that point now. If you're looking to make the jump from a single color single station; get this press. It's easy to use, very durable, and it's quality. The staff at Ryonet are wonderful as well, should you ever need to reach out to them for assistence. The orders I am able to handle with this press have enabled me to be able to now purchase a conveyor dryer, and it's only been 8 months.... THANK YOU!!

      I've been screen printing for 5 years, curing everything with a flash... time for the big upgrade. I'm impressed with the overall quality [of the RileyCure 245]. It took a few hours to get this set up, and I was running test prints the day it arrived. At this point, the unit can cure shirts just about as fast as I can print so I am very happy. My settings can probably be tweaked a little better, but this machine is really saving me a lot of time and ensuring consistency of cure. So far, this has basically doubled my productivity and then some.

      We don’t have enough words to express how happy we are with our decision to upgrade to our Riley 300. Everything about the press is amazing! Hands down it has the looks but it also has an amazing set of features. Our favorite thing about the Riley 300 is that it is completely toolless which makes all those fine adjustments so easy. Oh, and the off-contact adjustment, straight-up perfection! You guys nailed it with this one!

Very well made and heavy duty! install took only 10 min or less! laser is very well made and super bright, and the charger that came with the unit is great! seriously just buy it and pull the trigger!

      RILEYFLASH 18x18

      Put this [RileyFlash 1818] together this weekend and right off the bat I was impressed with the quality. The stand is good heavy metal and very solid. I bought some other dryers on Amazon cause it was cheaper and they were not close to this one. Thin metal and they literally burned out on me (caught fire). I wish I had spent the money on this one the first time.
