    I keep struggling to get a nice deep red to print on white reflective. I have a 1324 Valuejet. Most reds look orange or maroon? We just need to print a basic stop sign red color.
    Thanks,
    Tracy

    What rip are you using?

    I'm just using the rip in Flexi 10.5. A friend of mine just gave me an RGB.
    R180, G21, B53.
    Prints really nice.

    We usually do it with a profile that puts down quite a few passes and sometimes we do a double hit, if the red is critical.

    or lay transparent film over the reflective if you are unable to get the bright red.
