Will traditional screen printing equipment go away? Yes, eventually. I think it will hang around a while because frankly, screen printed shirts a just plain better. But think of the technologies that are in regular use today. Do they actually produce a better product than their predecessors or just produce an acceptable one cheaply? I am addressing the people who want to do this for a living. And i say you will have to supplement your income with a baby-sitters’ gig within 5-10 years if your business produces t-shirts the old-fashioned way. There is a DTG machine out there that is actually faster than an automatic press. If i remember correctly, it cost a couple of million dollars. Now, you may say, “see, John, you are a nutcase.” But then i would ask you how much a plasma television was in the late 1980’s.
