Hi Shawn.

I wonder if you could tell me if the Printa 770 worked out for you as I am thinking about investing in the same system. Have there been any downsides of this all-in-one system or has it delivered in terms of what it offers.

Many thanks,
Tony Mead

I never used that system myself but I know many people who have. It is very expensive and for the money I can sell you twice the equipment and you could have a complete commercial shop. I know space is a consideration for some but you could still do much better buying actual screen printing equipment instead of an "all in one" "screen printing in a can" system.

I would seriously reconsider such a system. Please call me if you have any questions I might answer. You don't have to worry I am not a salesman. I am an educator first and then if I can help out with equipment that's great. If not hopefully I can teach you what you need to know to make an educated decision at the very least.

Well, 3 years later. How do you like the Printa 770? I am looking into one and curious to hear your thoughts on the press.

I'm also gonna be doing sublimation on mugs and hats and of course tees! i saw a press that does all three. Is this ok to get because it is an all in one thing or should i get individual presses that do each separately?


Not to up sell but there is a reason why I do not offer the all-in-one made by Ikonix/RiCOMA. Usually the wires and connections give problems after switching in and out over time. Especially with an imported unit. Maybe a brand name all-in-one may work out better. Or perhaps someone can suggest an all-in-one they have had a good experience with.

I have been selling the Ikonix/RiCOMA dedicated heat presses for almost 9 years now and I have never had a warranty issue or a return. So I know I can trust these Chinese imports. But as I said, I still prefer not to sell the all-in-one. That's my humble opinion on the matter :)
