Are you doing stroke > flash > stroke ? (not sure if that is how professionals call it, SOMEONE CORRECT ME PLEASEE ) :rolleyes:
Is it opaque ink.
I had the same problem, printing in black with yellow ink.
So I bought opaque ink, two strokes, and it works just fine.

Did you adjust your off contact? Some people think that you need to have your screen so low for white ink that it almost touches the shirt (with no pressure). It's actually the complete opposite!! If the mesh gets stuck in the ink on the shirt.. when pressure is released it will make a 'snapping' sound.. thus pulling the ink up BACK into the screen. If you have a higher off contact (but not TOO high).. it will be like you're kind of ROLLING it on there instead of forcing it down on it. I hope this helped!

With white ink do you apply the "two pennies high" method ?

wow, ok for me it took forever to get it right!
first you need opaque ink, then your off contact (two pennies)
then you stroke,flash stroke

the first stroke you want it to be about 75 degrees the second one you want it to be low as it you were spreding butter about 30 degrees.

it work great for me, good luck
