Re: white ink

The poster above me mentions there was an XOLB 132 and an XOLB 158?

Re: white ink

I use the XOLB Royal Blue, Bright Red and Golden Yellow frequently, but the only color you might get away with no under base on black with is the blue. Even then, I've printed the blue over gold shirts and the shirt color will have an effect on the final ink color as opposed to printing the blue over a white shirt.

That isn't to say you can't print/flash/print them without an underbase, much as you can Union's Maxopake series, but they won't be as bright as with a white underbase.

Re: white ink

That's not the same stuff that we use. If you click on it you will see that it's the XOLB 132 not 158. We use the 158. I'm not sure what the difference is though.

Even cheaper here, which is local to me. Not sure what they charge for shipping though.

Pork - We honestly use it for everything. We actually think it down a little on our auto and Print, Flash, Print for underbase and straight white prints.

I think the XOLB means -- Extra Opaque Low Opacity.

Trust me, it's a beast!

I think the One Stroke white is around $110 a gallon which is why I asked. And yeah the transit from Kentucky to wherever (Los Angeles for me), is kind of a bear. My sales guy there was telling me they are starting to work with UPS on quicker ship times and lower shipping costs to the rest of the country though.

Re: white ink

I just want to put my mind at rest and reply. Yes, I agree that One Stroke is a TON more expensive. I went through a couple gallons of white and didn't see a difference versus paying almost 50 percent more than traditional ink. And..... Whatever you are used to works fine. Me, I use Ryonet white with no issues I can see. When I print 50/50 Hanes I use poly white only from Ryonet. I think it is International Coatings branded. But one and use it and see if you like it. Then make your own call.
