    I don't use wilflex ink but I would say for any flo pink on a black shirt you should use a underwhite. It will pop way more if you do.

    unless it's a job for Old Navy, use an underbase.

    If you do use an underbase, don't choke it as much as you would for a more opaque color.

    2-3 points. why you may ask cause the boss is too cheap to buy a good way to output films. laser printers suck and never register!!!!

    I would print a regular pink underbase, flash, then hit it with your Florecent Pink.

    We choke/trap 1pt for a underbase. But if your printing pink on pink you can just shoot the same films twice.
