Make a 4 Color Screen Printing Press

About: Enjoying making stuff. Check my Youtubes below!

I made this machine based on plans from, anyway if you note some differences with the plans, it is because after a time working on it, I have made some changes in the dimensions of the parts and some reinforcements to improve the printings on other materials such as wood, for example.

Note the descriptions in each one of the photos and watch the how-to video for more details.

This is a really versatile machine to make a lot of screen printing projects with great results, it can works with different materials as papers, fabrics, leather, wood and other porous materials. Surely in the following videos I will show some practical examples.
