Spot WhiteWhen working with colour variations and printing onto acrylic sheets, we can print direct to surface in full colour underpinning your print with a spot white to ensure it is as vibrant as it would have been if printed on a white sheet.

Spot White (Clear Material) – With clear materials a white ink is often required to add the ability to include white areas of a design or to underpin CMYK printing to give it a denser appearance.

White Flood – Acrylic sheets can be printed with full coverage white ink layer to back up a colour printed design giving you the appearance of a white background. This is popular when printing in reverse.
