White Ink over Black Ink

Postby GardenStateGold » Thu May 26, 2011 4:32 pm

I'm just starting out making shirts and some friends and I are trying to print white ink layered over black ink. Will the black ink show through the white ink? Any advice?

If you put enough to hide the black you will have a horrible plasticky feel (hand), why do you want to layer the inks?

we have a logo that has a shadow behind it but we don't want to use multiple screens so we want to do the black behind it and use the same screen to layer a white logo over to give it a shadowed look. Keep in mind this is the first time we've ever made shirts so we dont really know what we're doing

You can do that, you probably don't need to much black though.
