    Can anyone suggest an information source for spot uv screen printing in the US? I'm mostly wondering what materials to buy, where to buy them, and if it's possible to do it on a manual screen press. Thanks in advance.

    That would be good info to have, but I’m mostly looking for knowledge on spot UV with a screen press. I’ve seen it done with auto screen presses but I’m not sure if it’s possible to do with a manual. I print on a 3302 and I have a full screen printing dept for shirts and signs. I would like to add spot UV with my current equipment but I don’t know where to buy the ink, what type of ink or if it’s even possible.

    I would recommend you to search and look for a supplier in Printing and packaging industry. There are many in the States same as other places. You can find different products for different substrates. Spot UV machines in printing industry have more or less construction as textiles industry but since the job amount is high and time is a very important factor, they are built with automatic feeder. I assume your machine is manual and you need to modify the side or lateral stops to have a precise register.
