Ok, I've searched all the topics and if I'm duplicating I'm sorry but I can't find the answers I need.  My DH has been hinting around that he wants a screen printing kit to make some shirts for his buddies and what not.  He will more or less be making some single color shirts with basic letters, maybe something on the order of a mark like a nike swoosh or something.  Occasionally he may want to put a silhouette of a gun on there.  Anyway, can someone tell me exactly what I need to get him?  I've found references to the Speedball kit, but then others say there are ways to put together a kit for much cheaper because there are certain items that need to be replaced like the squeegee.  He will probably want photo emulsion since I really don't see him taking the time to cut out a bunch of stencils, he's more of an instant gratification type man.  SO, could someone help me put together a kit for him?  I am a complete idiot when it comes to this so I need a definitive list like buy screen a from www.buyscreena.com.  Oh, and I really need to keep it under $100 if possible, he'll be buying the shirts so I don't have to worry about that, except for maybe buying one or two to get him started. Thanks!!!

Hi,
i have a blog that gives free online tutorials for screen printers. It's especially helpful for people just starting out. I have a Screen print 101 series that details everything you will need to know about getting started and how to build your own kit for cheap and so you can get your DH set-up.
