hey everyone.

Ive got this logo and the guy wants it printed on an ash heather shirt, a royal blue shirt, and a red shirt. Im trying to figure out the best way to do it without having to burn a bunch of screens. The best method ive been able to come up with is just to outline the entire thing with a white underbase. any other suggestions?

With those colors, a white outline in the easiest way to go. For the colors to be the same on all colors you will need 2 white screen, underbase and outline white. God Bless.

On a dark shirt the base white will look washed out where it is not covered. Print/flash/print of the base white will give too heavy a hand.

Without the white border, Rudi's plan will work if you have very good registration. White underbase choked.

I would print this with 1 white with an outline unless you have good registration on your press........p/f/p on a 230 mesh for the white , 1 hit on the other colors...all screens 230 mesh.

interesting. that is what I was going to end up doing. 4 screens, p/f/p for the white then print once for the other colors. why 230 mesh though for white? here is what im thinking. (attached)

what ive attached seems to be the only to print this without having to make alternate outlined screens when printed on other colors. on white, I wouldnt even need the white screen.

230 mesh and a p/f/p for the white will end up giving a softer hand to the print..if you p/f/p white on a 156 or 110 mesh will leave a heavier hand than a 230 mesh...at least thats is the way I would print it....all screens 230 mesh , p/f/p the white , 1 hit for the rest of the colors.

I agree with the previously mentioned 4 screens, white base that will double as the outline as well. Colors and black over the white for bright colors and clean look. If you actually take the time to make sure everything is aligned the first time, you'll not waste shirts nor ink trying to eye ball it.

For me this is the ideal print, and less use of white. :)
I actually looked at this design as well. before I posted the one with the oval to it. Dont you think that with the white stroke around all of the design makes it a little more difficult to read than with the oval underbase? That was what I was looking at. This would be less white and a more cost effective print though.
