Black before white

Posted on Sun, 28 Oct 2007 at 12:11



Just wondering if anyone out there has experimented with printing black before white. I have printed this way for years and recently started at a new shop and they do not approve of my style. Im not saying i always run my black first but on select jobs it can really speed things up. I also understand that your art has to be created a certain way in order to make this work and will definatly not work if your artist likes to trap anything. Butt end registration is the only way to go and maybe take a point off your white. Im just curious on peoples opinions thank you.

I would simply state that it depends on the art, garment and other variables. If your new employer needs a demonstration I would simply make a sample, one printed the way they want... then one made altering the print order.

Let the final results speak for themselves.
