I cannot find a Yellow Gold that I can Print flash print on black and get good coverage, I always use a 3rd print. I've tried Triangle, One Stroke, union, J&S. Does anyone know of a company that can furnish a product.
Thanks

What did you use from Union? I use Maxopake and do not have a problem with coverage P/F/P. What mesh are you using?

Rutland Bright gold from the low bleed ready-for-use series. The color is approximately a 1235C. It's a stiff ink, but has excellent coverage on darks with no underbase.

Yellow inks seem to be translucent by nature. I've never gotten coverage on dark shirts using high-opacity inks by themselves without using a 110 mesh and piling the ink on. I don't even try anymore. Use a 156 mesh or a 195 mesh with a flooded stencil and a slow print stroke for a white underbase, then hit it with some golden yellow through a 156 or higher mesh count. You'll have a brighter print, not to mention a softer hand.
