  • Opaque White Ink???

    whats the best way to get the most opaque white ink...
    is it to use UV White?

    problem is, i've got a Clear PS label that is being applied to a Black Surface. Which requires there to be Opaque White as an underlay for the other colors to show up on the black Surface. In the past i've always used UV White Ink to do this, wether its a Clear PS label or if its acting as a "cover up" when going on something like Silver Mylar.

    but this time around the UV White seems to be just as opaque as regular Water based White...

    are there some Variables that i am missing here?
    I heard that the Size of Analocks used on the press can determine how thick the ink is layed down, is this true?

    Any Info on this would be great!!!

      I worked for a sticker company for 3 and a half years, we did stickers on clear a lot, and had tremendous trouble getting printers to understand that we wanted an OPAQUE white. No matter what ink they tried, it was never truely opaque. We went to doing double hits of their most opaque white ink. I think it was UV White, but can't be certain (I just got to draw the pretty pictures, die lines, white plate layers etc).

      I'll double check your spelling if you'll double check mine. Two heads are better than one.

        out of curiosity, what do you find weird about their output formats? What is an example of something that you find wrong with the software? Just curious as I'm considering checking it out.

        Your link does not work.

        I wouldn't hire you if you've never used InDesign.

        Some things are wrong with affinity software, but some things are better conceived than Illustrator and Photoshop. They are working on a Indesign alternative. Their Photoshop and Illustrator alternatives...
