When possible we put 2 images on a stencil to save money and storage space. I was told the DEK can not use offset images, Is this true?

Probably depends on the model. We have DEK Horizon and we sometimes place 2 images on the same sheet (in the Y dimension. It's not possible for the X dimension). Just make sure that there's enough space for a paste roll and squeegees between the images.

Not true... with manual screen load machines (LT / Horizon), you need to ascertain the correct position / measurement and can load to that position. Auto load machines there is a "custom screen" setting which is used to tell machine the position ("Distance to Image") for screen to be loaded to position; i.e. "Y" - Alignment of image to fixed rail.
