I learned about the Provocraft Yudu Personal Screenprinter today through Stacy Sews. The Yudu is an exposure unit, drying cabinet, and printing table/registration system all in one, and it uses proprietary flat screens and water-based nontoxic inks. It looks like a nice alternative to the Print Gocco (what’s the latest story on those — are they out of production again?), but like the Gocco, it’s neater/more convenient than buying your own setup of screenprinting supplies and equipment. It’s got an 11×14 printing area, and is designed primarily for T-shirt printing though it looks like it would be easy enough to use it for printing on paper or fabric.
The system is manufactured by Provo Craft in Utah. It retails for around $275-300, and comes with all the supplies you need to get started. Just keep in mind the cost of extra supplies (ink, screens, replacement bulbs, emulsion and emulsion remover, etc.) if you’re weighing this against a traditional setup.
