    Default process printing with underplate

    I'm attempting to do a process print on dark garments...

    I'm putting down one coat of white/flashing then printing cmyk, but the colors are extremely light/washed out looking...

    I've seen other prints like this with an underplate and the colors are really bold...do I need to do something different with the seperation?

    I'm using Rutland snap white for the underplate and Union process inks...

    any advice is appreciated!

    Did you adjust the CMYK levels?

    Have you ever successfully printed process on white shirts?

    I've only done 3 other process jobs that turned out so-so...the black usually came out a little weak...

    no adjustments were made with color levels...

    I was basically given a one week crash course in process printing, and my only source of information is now in Indiana...

    I think I'll call it 'Screen Printing for Jerks."

    so what I'm hearing is that the problem is with the seperation, and that there are too many variables to give any kind of advice without viewing the artwork first?

    This sounds like a job for someone with more experience...

    am I correct in these assumptions?
