HI everyone, was just wondering, what are all of your methods for printing light ink on dark shirts? Flash print cure? Thanks in advance!
I am just referring to printing white on a black shirt. Any special emulsion coating techniques for this? Any registration issues when doing the print/flash/print?
I am doing my first multi colored job Monday. What does flashing the shirt first do?
I know what the Vladimir but why would u flash the shirt before u print what does heating the shirt do?Celtic said:A flash unit is used to gell an ink so that if you print and it's not enough coverage on the shirt, you 'flash it' just long enough for the heat to dry to the touch, not cure, then you let it cool down, then print your next color or the next layer of color.
If you have colors that touch, you need to flash so that your colors don't dirty.
Or if you print a underbase, you'll need to flash before you print your top colors.
Flash units are also used by some as their final cure.
