Buying equiptment in the UK

Postby rubyc » Tue Feb 26, 2013 5:03 am

Hey, I have been watching your videos for ages now and they are just so helpful! So thankyou :D

I want to turn my hobby into a small business but i'm stuggling to find where to buy the equiptment I need/I don't know which brands to trust. :?

What I want to ask is if you know of any good screen printing suppliers based in the UK?

I am willing to spend a fair amount of money to get a good set up, but I don't want to end up with rubbish equiptment because I didn't know who/where/which brand to buy!

Any advice or help you could give would be awesome. I wish I was in the US so I could get the ranar stuff, it looks so good!

Thanks,
Ruby

Hey there thanks for posting on the Catspit Forum! I appreciate that. And it’s great to hear you’ve been a viewer for some time now. Thanks for watching!

I don’t have many connections in the UK but I do work with MacDermid Autotype. They make very good chemicals, emulsions, films and more.

Now they don’t have all the supplies like inks or equipment but I would trust their advice in the UK for suppliers.

Check them out and contact them. Let me know if they don’t respond or if you can’t get a decent answer. It’s a big corporation so sometimes I need to assist ;)

Oh, I can ship RANAR equipment globally but the ocean freight can vary depending on the nearest port to you.

I hope this lead can help you.

Thanks so much for replying! I'll definitely check that out and see what they say.

Oh that's good to know, I live just a few miles from Dover port so if it comes to it that could be an option.

Thanks again I'll let you know how it pans out :)

We don't have any dealers in the UK, but we are very experienced in shipping overseas. If you figure out exactly what equipment you are interested in, we can get a ocean freight quote for you. Shipping via air is possible, but very expensive.

Hi,
Great vids Jonathan, i have found them very helpful as a beginner.

Ranar, out of interest could you tell me what the total cost would be
to ship the Elite 4 colour 4 station manual press to Southampton UK.

Keep up the good work guys.

Thank you. Glad you enjoy my video work.

If you need a quotation let me know by email. I don't get any credit if you buy from Ranar direct. But I do if you buy from Catspit ;) I'm happy to help out and get an export quote for you.

Old thread but anyway

As I know Ranar have only two dealers in Europe one in France which didnt reply me back, one in Sweden from which is I think a little bit serious, and also in Russia but they dont speak english and I dont spek russian so I will probably import from the States. Time to time you can see here in EU on some adverts Vista series but very old and prices are like they are new.

I have now prices from this Company in Sweden and they are exactly the same as in the States but I must pay additional 22% VAT that normal therefore the situation is slightly different and + shipping cost which can mess all together if they dont have some cheap possibilities.

When I will have all together I will contact you also, for me it is significant only the final price and who knows maybe is from US cheaper I dont know.
