There are silkscreen shops throughout the entire country that function with small orders and quick production times as the basic staples of their businesses. Many of the problems faced by these producers are the same. High rental overhead, unskilled temporary help when large orders need to be printed, and insufficient time to meet many of the deadlines. Especially among shops that specialize in T-shirts and hats, many of the orders are for time sensitive events and often the order is placed at the very last minute.

Primary among the difficulties faced by small silkscreen print shops is that of space. Particularly in cities, sufficient space for working, storage, and cleaning can be the largest expense in the budget. The machinery that is distributed through Holden's Screen Supply is selected with this concern in mind. The amount of working space required for the printing equipment is less than or equal to the space that manual production requires.

Many of the printing machines that are distributed can be operated successfully with a minimum of training. Temporary help can be quickly trained to print the most precise registration. Ink is evenly distributed, and the squeegee pressure is mechanically controlled.

Curing done with a flash unit or a conveyer system provides quick, complete, and even curing of all printed garments and requires practically no storage space. Garments are evenly cured with controlled heat.

The machines that have been developed for the silkscreen industry print more quickly than hand printing. Although they are built for industrial use, they are oriented toward the smaller silkscreen shop. They are compact and efficient. The machines will have paid for themselves with the larger and quicker capacity that they will provide. Well chosen and placed printing machinery will provide a competitive edge to a small print shop. Printing machinery will place the printer in a position of being able to cultivate larger orders and respond more quickly with time sensitive orders. Also, because of the mechanical calibrations, fewer printed garments will be seconds.

From the screen printer who is producing a line of T-shirts to the elaborate silkscreen publishing of large-scale signs and posters, the work involved in screenprinting can be eased with the use of machines that are designed specifically for the screen printing industry.

From the beginning of the process, creating the image on a silkscreen, to the employment of the screen in actual printing, machinery is invaluable.

All machinery is reliable and upgradable as new developments occur or larger capacity requirements need to be met. The machinery is designed to meet capacity demands of various sizes of print shops.
