Without any fancy links, I can tell you that it is actually quite simple. (For me) the hardest part is applying emulsion evenly. You will definitely need space as it is a messy process. But if you are willing to rough it a bit, you can create your own set up for fairly cheap.

silk screening is very easy if you know what your doing! Also quick to pick up!! If you are wanting to start your own business it will cost you roughly around $10,000. But it will vary depending on how big of equipment you want. The 10 is based on 6 stations, flash, dryer, and everything you will need!
