I don't have a website offhand, but I think I've got one still. I'll have to find it and give it to you.
The price depends on what kind of printer you want. If you want one to mass produce shirts... you are looking at spending like $5000 and up probably. A midrange style printer is about $2000. A 'one-shirt-at-a-time' type printer will run you close to $1000 after the machine, screens, ink, etc.

Well a silk screener is ink and stuff (colors and crap.. professional style). Are you talking about a machine that presses on precut letters and stuff? if so, i think you can do that with a regular iron and some wax paper.
Silk screeners are expensive. A bottom of the line one still runs about 700 or so dollars, but then you have to buy the supplies (ink and crap) and the shirts.
