Hi can you go from 4w+cymk to 1w+cymk?

We have a dtg digital bullet.

It seems like alot of white is been used!

Do you really need all those other white ink lines?

Not sure about what rip your using but there should be a way you can modify your inkset to use just one white then you can try this and find out why you need all four lines. You will notice a slight difference but if any of your nozzles clog during your print you will be apt to notice just using one channel. In other words the other channels help when this happens it's not as pronounced. Hope this helps.

The way your RIP is set up, and the way the printer was set up to print an opaque white, you do need to use all 4 white channels when you are printing. Changing the print resolution will change the amount of white ink lay down. Also, depending on what RIP you are using, you should have a control within the software to control ink saturation.
