We are pleased to offer affordable screen printing Vacuum platens. Vacuum platens are essential for successfully screen printing flat substrates and paper products such as heat transfers, card stock, posters and much more. Many screen printers try and circumvent using a vacuum platen because of the high investment cost; they compensate by using spray adhesive, which leaves a sticky mess behind on the substrate. This both complicates the process and can alter the integrity of the product being created. Now you can increase the quality of your product and the efficiency of your printing process by adding a vacuum platen to your screen printing press. This platen comes with a bracket for the Riley Hopkins press. Vacuum platens are sold individually without a vacuum, but can simply be attached to an industrial shop vac or household vacuum with a 1″ Connection.
