Membership at the Olio Cooperative includes 24/7 access to the studio and use of its full screenprinting facilities, including equipment, chemicals, tools and supplies for printing (other costs may apply).  What’s more, it costs less than a carpet cleaner rental, or even replacing your emulsion covered shower curtain.  It’s a unique opportunity for anyone with skills but no space, equipment or supplies.


HIX 6 colour/4 station press w/side clamps & micro registration

Hix are excellent presses & we’re pretty excited to be housing this 6/4 t-shirt press.  Has side clamps & micro registration and holds registration very well.  These machines perform well in commercial shops and can be reliably used for longer runs of shirts.

 


4 Colour / 1 Station Mobile Press

Olio recently picked up this little gem – a mobile 4 colour t-shirt press, available for off-site printing and rentals.  We’ve managed to get lots of use out of it so far, showing it off at craft fairs, conventions & such.  Available to members on a daily rate – emails for inquiries.
