Separation Studio-How to create a white discharge underbase?
« on: April 30, 2015, 02:29:21 AM »

Printing with all discharge inks = no underbase

when I've done this with sep studio, we just eliminate the base layer, and print everything else, the top white is likely what you're after anyways...

your only issue that you may run into is that sep studio uses halftones in the underbase to make the other colors llghter/darker on shirt, but if you do a bit of testing you can figure out what to boost/cut in sep studio to make it look like you want.

Unless you want to "mix" white with some colors to get more of a pastel red or pastel blue or what have you. I'd put it early like first so's it's subtle and not overpowering ...but with no flash as they suggest.


Edit:  That's why I always say "it depends on the art and what you need to do with it".
