Hello everyone,

I have a white overprint problem with illustrator. With printing, the overprint over my logo remains cyan even if the color is set to "white".

I would like to make the red and green color of the flag more brilliant. There is no problem if white overprints the logo entirely.

my printer is OKIPRO7411WT

 

 

thank you in advance

I'm not sure what I'm looking at there or what objects are set to overprint, or what you want to happen. What flag do you mean?

Please show us the appearance of the objects in Illustrator and the general set up of the file.

 

Is that printer PostScript ready?

Are we really talking about overprinting (that you set in the Attribute panel)

Does it get better when you print it as a PDF from Acrobat?

Your white swatch is set up to be displayed as cyan (which in itself is not wrong).

It's a spot color, so whatever is inside the printing machine, will get printes. But your desktop printer doesn't know that.

This overprinting setup is used for printing white undercoats, foiling, all kinds of offset printing special effects.

 

It makes no sense whatsoever to use it with desktop printers. Please tell us what you want to achieve.
