Printing on Phone Cover Problem

Post by emreserim » Fri Jan 20, 2017 3:34 pm

hi,

i use OEM inks and just print phone cover samples for my client.
he sent me that picture, one of them is mine print sample which has Minnie Mouse.
he says my white ink opacity is too low.

i also print CMYK without White, he says it looks low opacity too.

btw, my ink doesn't hold on this material. i tried to use primer but it doesn't work.

advices?

Copyright material aside, try printing white, then white>cmyk. this will give double coverage on white.
Or you can White (Overprint x2) then cmyk.

As above, and also shake your ink daily. You can also edit your CMYK settings via colour management and by using spot colours or even the colour adjustment tab in RVW if accurate colour is not too much of an issue.

but holding on material is the biggest problem. i used Roland's Glass Primer but it doesn't work very well.
still looking for a way. i can't find any other materials here, in Turkey.

You may need to import cases if the supplier there is using a different (or strange!?) material/process.
Do you clean them first? There are several primers you can try.

update about holding on to the material:

i use Roland glass primer but i let it dry for 1 day. after that, result was awesome. no one can scratch it. (i tried with screwdriver)
