Dwayne Collins of Texsource Screen Printing Supply demonstrates printing white ink on a black substrate, outlining the differences in a single-pass print and a print-flash-print, and the subsequent vibrancy of each.
- It all comes back to the material you’re printing on
- Some whites take a little longer to flash than others
- A typical flash will be anywhere between five to 10 seconds
- Check ink for tackiness with finger
- Print-flash-print will give you a brighter print versus a single pass of white
- Key: Make sure your flash is dry to the touch before printing the second pass
- Key: Make sure you’re printing the right white for the garment
