Exclamation TO UNDERBASE or DOUBLE PASS ??

Hiya everyone thanks for looking!

Ok basically when i print with Red plastisol on a UK 32t mesh i usually just print... flash and then print .... and then cure.

so ive put down two layers of red one on top of the other.

This gives a very opaque red and looks good.


so im just wondering is there any disadvantage to this?

should i be underbasing?

why would i underbase???


Any help would be great thank!!!

Love n hugs!

is the red your using meant for direct dark printing?
underbase gives you the true color on the black shirt. So the red would look 10x better

Hiya thanks for the reply.

well to be honest it is very thick even after stiring.

Hmmm im not sure... do ink manufacturers make plastisol inks for dark garments seperate from light garments?

if it's a 1 color job, print/flash/print works fine altho it won't always give you the most accurate color. printing on a white background will give you a bright and accurate color.

I often printed 1 color jobs the way you did, with print/flash/print. Some bright colors demand being printed on a white base for darks tho, like bright yellow.

Printing with a base gives better results in my opinion. the down side is you are now using 2 screens and have to register the screens.
