    I am trying to print this sponsor for a racecar, but it is not blending correctly like it shows in Flexi. What am I doing wrong that it is not printing correctly? Images are attached. One image is how it is showing in Flexi, other is how its printing out.

    Thanks!

    Flexi is putting a mask on the fade. Try flattening it to a raster image.

    Also you can try to change rasterizing process. To ErrorDiffusion. It may help.

    The "angry red bird with cigar" belongs to Clay Smith cams established in 1931.

    If you want to keep it vectorised, I’ve found flattening PDF’s in acrobat used to solve that for me. Takes about a minute but easy to set up an action.

    make a watermark over image, consisting of a couple spaces “ “ as a placeholder (you want the watermark to remain invisible, you can put anything you want in that box though.

    drop watermark opacity to 0%.

    open up flattener preview, then convert all text to outlines (I can’t remember what else I usually tick but I think it’s pretty much the default settings).

    We only used to get that problem in rasterlink, haven’t had it in onyx yet. Though I do remember you could see transparency issues in the print preview.
