If your only going to make a couple of shirts for yourself, you should just take your design to a screen printer. Screen Printing equipment is not cheap. I just sold off all my equipment used for $4,000 (but I used really good equipment) U can buy a cheap table top press for a few hundred bucks and do your own. It's the other little supplies that adds up.

hope that helps.

i'm taking screenprinting right now in school.
i got my screen from:
www.victoryfactory.com/wood.htm
pretty cheap, depending on the size.

emulsion runs about $20.
idk about inks, b/c i use the schools.

and to burn your images on your screen, you're gonna need a lot of light.
