You will get a better result printing the white last.
The white and black plastisol is from screenprintingandsignsupplies (came in the press kit that I bought) and the blue I bought from catspit. Catspit didn't sell navy so I mixed the blue from them with a little of the black until I got the color I wanted and then my husband and I both stirred it for about 15 minutes to make sure it was thoroughly mixed. I hope it's ok to mix plastisol to get the color you want. When I try again today, I'll try reversing the print order too. Do you print the navy, then flash, then print the white? I hear people talking about wet on wet but that seems like it would just put the other color all over your screen (unless I'm missing something).
