    Default Printing on black paper

    So when you're going to print something like this:

    http://www.gigposters.com/posters.ph...=40135&c=1

    do you put white down where the red is going to be so that the red is really red? Or do you just do the red straight onto the balck paper?

    That's how I fucked up my Explioted poster, trying to print red exactly in register over white... never got it registered perfectly so it sucked.

    the high on fire poster looks like it's just going to be red straight onto the black paper (that's not printed yet, right?)

    I agree.
    Plus, black paper is almost never black.

    Waterbased red is always slightly more transparent than other colors. I could never get the red opaque enough to print it straight out on to black paper.

    Maybe plastisol reds are more opaque?
