Reverse print on clear with white as last color

Post by stickerland » Fri Nov 23, 2012 12:36 pm

Hi there all!
I've just today bought a brandnew DC4sx. Loving it sofar.

I am totaly new in this kind of printing.
The Summa is an alternative to our Roland RS-640 we have.

The most things we will print with the summa is on clear.
We want a print on clear, which is place on cars.
The decal has to stick on the inside. Print facing out.

Now, this is not that difficult.
Mirror print on clear. Done.

But I want the last layer of the print to be covered with white. So the print is less translucent and the print is brighter.

What steps and settings do I have to do to accomplish this?
I am usign CorelDraw X5 (X4 eventualy) and colorcontrol.

Tried serveral things, but no succes.

You need another layer to your graphic, give it spot white fill.

You have to set the white spot to "overprint fill" corel's "Edit Menu"

& make sure it's the last pass in Summa Color Control.

Your "white" must be place "on top" of your graphic in coreldraw with it set to "overprint"


.. you will not be able to see it ( your graphic ) for it to work properly...

if that makes sense... :D

That makes sense!

I did put the white layer on the bottom, and then set to overprint.
Didn't work.

Now I will try to put the white layer on top of them all and then set to overprint.

Thanks!
