I'm sure I will be printing more things with this kit, and it will be easier since I won't have to gather more supplies to set up.
These are my main beefs with the product:
1. I bought this knowing I didn't want to attach it permanently to a surface. I bought clamps and everything came out alright. I just wish they would have an option for someone who doesn't wish to put holes in a table.
2. For the life of me, I could not open the emulsion. I gave myself a blister trying. I emailed the company for help and never heard back. My boyfriend opened it after about 10 minutes of struggling with a screwdriver. It was easier to open and close after the initial opening, but, geez. I hesitate to buy this emulsion again even though I had no problems with the emulsion itself.
3. The light situation annoyed me. I knew it came with only bulbs so I expected this. It just makes this less of a complete kit as I had to buy other things to sort this aspect out.
4. The instructions are sometimes lacking in important detail. How far should the light be from the screen when exposing? How long/what temp should the ink be cured with an iron? I don't want to have to check YouTube to make sure I'm doing things correctly.
1 Instructional DVD
8 Parchment Papers
5 Premium Rite Films 8.5 x11
10 Cleanup Cards
1 16x20 Wood Screen with 156 mesh
4 Disposable Gloves
2 Sprayer Tops for the two bottles included in the kit
1 screen emulsion stripper bottle
1 screen degreaser bottle
1 2oz screen adhesive bottle
1 yellow safe light bulb
1 uv bulb
1 8oz WP black ink
1 scrub pad
1 11” plastic scoop coater
1 2” clear screen tape-low adhesive
1 10” durometer squeegee
1 pint of WBP emulsion
But I found some slight differences of what is actually in the box and they are the following:
-We actually get 2 red scrubs instead which is nice!
-What is misleading is that what I expected to receive was an 8oz bottle filled with emulsion stripper as well as another 8oz bottle filled with degreaser. However, you get 2oz of emulsion stripper in an 8oz bottle, meaning you have to fill the rest of the 6oz with water. Same goes with the degreaser except you get 4oz of product.
-The squeegee is not the complete 10” but instead 9.75”, not sure if that matters to anyone but I measured.
-The squeegee and emulsion coater look different than the ones pictured. The squeegee is not yellow nor does it say Your DIY Print Shop. It is a translucent orange brown instead with no logo on the wooden grip part. The coater is not a metal color with black ends but an all black plastic material instead.
-Exposure bulb is fancier than the one pictured. The wooden screen does not have logo either.
What I wish the kit would have but I can get on my own anyway: some screen filler and a small lamp to put the exposure light bulb in.
Everything was packed snug and safe. I was worried for the bulbs but they arrived in perfect condition. Package was super glued shut, had difficulties opening it so I couldn’t keep the “limited edition” box.
What I like about this kit is that the fluids included are Eco-Friendly.
My final note, is that I am aware that many people are upset about not receiving a press. But if you go to the diyprintshop website, then they specifically state that the platen is NOT included. Amazon on the other hand has not made this clear. I also wanted to point out that there is a difference between a platen and an actual press. The blue base pictured is a platen, an actual press configuration looks completely different and you can buy one by this brand for $150 or simply consider buying an upgrade kit that includes one. This is why this kit is called the DIY Table Top “HINGE” Kit.
Amazon is naming this kit the T-Shirt Kit and this is wrong also. The actual T-Shirt Kit costs double as much as this kit.
I have not tried the kit yet, just took a look at everything that is included.
I can tell some pros and cons already. For example, I prefer aluminum frames over wood for durability reasons. A pro would be easy set up. However, I think this is a nice overall starting kit.
