Correction It was only $527 for 10 Gallons!

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

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.

I wonder what the difference is in the XOLB's? And I see that the XOLB colors, they claim need no underbase, but only recommend using up to a 160 mesh. I USED to use nothing lower than 160, now I'm moving up to 180 and beyond. Ah well, I guess for the price, it can't hurt to experiment.

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.

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