How do lay down a white back?

Post by Jengel » Tue Dec 04, 2007 7:32 pm

I am printing several small logos on clear vinyl and on a test run my colors were too transparent so I need to lay down a layer of white first. How do I do this on a file that has already been created and how do I make sure my DC4 recognizes it and then lays it down first?
Thanks in advance for the help.

In Summa's CC "advanced" tab use

Color Mask - prints a white square behind your image , set id to white id#9

or use

Primer Dot - this will lay white down only under the printed area (probably what you want) set id to white id#9

Works pretty well.


You can even print the white twice....if need be.

I figured it would be something pretty simple.

Thanks Muts!

you have to adjust the overlap...whenever using a white primer.
