We came out with three neutral colors for our fleece this year: tan, sand dune and vintage white. Beamer Lembo ’24 Make Special Teams Great Again Shirt To show a way to use a neutral color but add a pop of neon, we chose tan for this design for a great contrast. One of things from a printing perspective is to get a really bright neon fluorescent color. Generally printers tend to just put a tremendous amount of ink down and we don’t want to do that- we want to keep a nice soft hand to it. We’re going to show you how you can actually apply multiple layers of neon ink and get a super bright vibrant look while retaining a nice soft hand. One of the worst things, when you put a really heavy layer of ink down? You get a nasty texture, kind of an orange peel texture, is what they call it. We want to avoid that with a nice smooth texture. Here’s how we do it:
Split your print into four separate screens to set up for four thin layers of ink. We want to have a nice bright print, but with minimal ink deposit.
Print a white under base (135 Mesh). Flash it.
Print a secondary white under base (225 Mesh). Flash that.
Print the first layer of neon green (225 Mesh). Flash it.
Print the last layer of neon green (225 Mesh). You guessed it- flash it.
The most important thing to note is all of the mesh counts are very high. Mesh meaning, we’re printing really really thin layers of ink, but stacking them on top of each other to get a really clean, bright print!
