The permit requirements in the LA area definitely impact screen printing operations. You need to ask him how much ink per day he uses. Presses using no more than 2 gallons of ink material, including solvents, washups etc, per day are exempt from permitting. If you are using plastisols, then the exemption level is 6 gallons per day. UV ink exemption is also 6 gallons per day.

Additionally, the gentlemen you are purchasing from may be out of compliance with the rules issued by the South Coast Air Quality Management District as the District has specific regulations governing screen printing operations as well as clean up operations. I can tell you that he should not be using mineral spirits.
