"The machine is design and prints slow enough not to need to print your white pass then cmyk. You can do that though by printing adding time in the print area, then return to origin. It makes plenty of sense, just do not think it will help, but you…"

"Hi Irving. With printing white ink as a base, should I leave time for ink to outgas before printing over the top or is that only a time delay before laminating? I usually leave 24 hours before laminating and a minimum of 3 hours between printing…"

"Hi Irving, To address your points, the wood is the surface to which the sticker is applied. The photo I sent shows only a single coat of the white ink on a sticker that is stuck onto a wooden surface. I have read the manual several times and I am…"

"Why do you see the wood underneath?  So several things: You need to read the manual on using white You should not have any objects under your white (they should be knocked out) White should be printed to the clear media If you are using for…"

"I don't know if it is a BN-20 thing but it is still see through if I don't use overprint. It is quite limiting as a Return to Origin is not accurate on larger jobs and the second print over the top may not line up perfectly. This also…"

"Only do it before you need to print - You will be flushing the ink below the circulation line. Try it without the overprint and see if it makes a difference for you. If you must do it your original way, that sounds like nite time printing while you…"

"Hi Irving, Thank you for the response. I do shake the cartridge every day but I haven't done a power clean. I do print white ink about 3 days a week on average. I hadn't thought about the ink separating in the line but it makes sense.How…"

"Shake your cartridge, prior to starting, do a power clean, then print. White is a solid ink, not like cmyk which are translucent. The ink can seperate in the line, even with the circulation, so if you do not do the above - you will be laying down a…"

BN-20 no. of passes and overprint

Hii hope this is not a silly question but I was wondering whether the number of passes in a profile uses more ink. I am currently using overprint but need just a little more white ink to make the finish more opaque for printing on clear. I was hoping just to be able to increase the number of passes rather than put down another layer of white. Can someone please explain this to me?if I did White -> CMYK with an overprint of 2 times, will this put down white underneath twice and then colour on…See More
