    Doug I have read that link. The other thing I was wondering is if only one hit of white over black would be enough or would you need two too get white?

    I trust Bob. He shows one. I've done many reverse applied decals with a white "backing" on top... but never added black & never made a two sided decal, so I figured if Bob did it, one hiit would work. Besides, now they have super opaque white foils, so that would be my choice. (or flood-coat white)

    Super Opaque white works good too if you only want to do one hit per side. Regular white seems to have a grey tinge to it unless you hit it twice. Another good blockout color is silver in place of black. It's been used by traditional screen printers for years when doing 2 sided decals.
