Default How would you separate this????

I was wondering if someone can tell me the best way to separate this image? Since the outline isn't that wide, I was wondering if it would be OK to print the solid red and then go back on top with the black. This might help a little when it comes to alignment but wasn't sure how black would do on top of another color. Printing on a sport grey hoodie so not too worried about the ink build up. Thanks in advance!

I would beef up the outline just a little and go with solid first color.

It looks like you added the outline before you stretched the lettering up. The outline on top and bottom are thicker than the sides. Reset the font, convert to curves and set it to the size you want and then add the outline. If you have good screens, you can print them with a butt fit or a little trap. If not, print the red and then the black on top. It will be a little thicker, but not terrible.

I would increase the outline and make it black, then make the fill white and print that. then make the fill black and give it a .5 black outline and print that. I would print the black first and then the red. Good Luck. George

Thanks for all the great suggestions! I ended up thickening up the outline and printed the black over the red. Turned out great and customer loved it. Thanks again for the help!!!!
