This tool will allow you to make one-colour prints on many different substrates. It comes with a printing board specially designed to hold t-shirts, but it can be easily changed to start printing on other clothing sizes or on other materials, such as woven fabric, metal, paper, plastic, wood, glass, ceramics or leather.

The press also has a robust clamping system, allowing to hold larger screens while keeping them stable for accurate larger printings.

Based on Mekanika's core philosophy, Screen printing press is released under an open source license (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0). This project showcases an affordable one-colour press. It is the ideal tool to start learning screen printing, but also to start a small business or an artistic project.
