    I'm considering buying a silkscreen set up to start a home based business.

    Pros-I have artistic abilities
    -I have computer skills (autoCAD draftsman by trade)
    -I have a strong desire to do something artistic
    -I have a strong desire to be my own boss

    Cons-I know nothing about silkscreening
    -I live in a small town (pop.2500?)

    Anybody in TW in the business that could give me some advise on equipment and the business in general?

    Hit up bands. If you can get them tshirts and shit fast and cheap they'll take you for every shirt you can pump out. I don't know much, but my buddy does it as a hobby and he's really good at it. He has a few friends who are professional silk screeners and use the octopus as they call it.

    Actually thinking back I have another buddy who did it professionally as well. Made me a sweet Weyland Yutani one for my birthday.
