     Should I Buy Used Equipment?


This is where most people new to screen printing make their first, and biggest
mistake.  First, they buy equipment before doing a sales plan or getting
professional grade training.  These newbies are buying a “good deal” but
don’t know good equipment from bad equipment.  Screen printers
sell their junk and keep the good equipment.  The newbie is the sucker.  People
selling because they are going out of business failed in their business with
this equipment, but the newbie who knows nothing about screen printing someone
thinks he or she will be successful where the prior owner was a failure.

Before buying any used equipment, the person considering buying should go
through all the same steps as someone buying new equipment.  To be a successful
buyer of used equipment, a person should either already own and know the equipment,
or should be witnessing the quality of work coming off that equipment in other
shops.  Talk is cheap and unreliable.  You need to see for yourself,
and better, have a screen printer with a reputation established for quality
provide insight to the quality of the product printed on that press.  Look
before you leap, or you will find yourself off the cliff without anything to
hold on to.
