    Is this only in a portion of the gradient or all of it?

    Flexi has an option in the RIP/Print for Smooth Gradients... Might try that.

    Also check the EDIT>COLOR SETTINGS... Gradients should be set to Relative Colorimetric

    No. Set the rendering intents to 'Spot Color' for gradients. If you use any other setting you can get some rather creative interpretations of white should your gradient pass through or even close to white.

    Use the Smooth Blends drop down on the printer setup's Color Management tab to select 'Enhanced' or 'Super'. Don't use 'Normal' unless you really don't care what you get for a print.
