So I just have to say the REAL push stroke is fantastic with a capital F! I'm still learning, but my prints are coming out sooo much better today with the use of the push stroke. I have had a few complete solid images with just P/F/P . My confidence is starting to grow and I'm feeling good about the quality of shirts I'm producing!

Thank you guys for pointing me in this direction!

Keep us posted if you have any more questions. Oh when you say PFP you dont have to do that with a 1 color print unless you are doing white ink on darks.

I'm working on 2 color prints red and black right now. I think with the push stroke in my arsenal now I may even go back and attempt the white ink on black shirts again soon(maybe lol)

If the colors are not touching in the artwork you could get away with out flashing if you are on a light colored shirt. There are some variables to contend with when printing wet on wet though like printing light to dark or small to big. Some inks are better at printing wet on wet as well.

When the shirt is not in front of a direct bright light or still on the platen the print looks perfect.

My question is what is causing this to occur and how can it be corrected? Also is it ok for it to look like that or is that a bad print and should it not be sold? Also Will it affect quality & durability of the shirt?

This issue and these question may have a pretty obvious answers, but I've only been screen printing for about 2 wks and I'm just trying to learn.

Thank you for all your help,
I think this is totally normal.
