    Default best over-printing colors...?

    hey printer people... what colors do you find the best results with when you want to over print to get a third color? Seems like CMY colors work well.. just wondering what other colors people have had trustworthy results with...

    yes, Yellow seems to always work best for me...as an overlay color that is. Really it all depends on how good you are at using transbase, etc to get what you want.

    Reds are tough to trans, and of course this means anything with red in it. Yellow is super easy, but blues aren't so bad either. Use a ton of flat clear TW base and you can get anything trans.

    How do you guys mix in your trans base? I use a cake mixer. Any tips?

    The best over print color is black. Finish your silly ass print then take a screen, you don't even need any emulsion, and just print right over top of that shit with black. Even better if it's super sludge black that you make from mixing a bunch of leftover shit colors together.
