    Overprinting shapes onto a base of white ink

    B. Schlueter Level 1

      I'm setting up artwork to be screen printed onto clothing, and I have a question on overprinting.

       

      The art contains an illustration that is made up of many overlapping shapes with various spot-color fills, gradients, and strokes. I want to print this illustration on top of a base of white ink. My dilema is: if I do not set the illustration to overprint, it knocks out the white ink base, and if I do set the illustration to overprint, it changes appearance because all of the overlapping items in the illustration overprint each other as welll as the white ink base.

       

      I would like the items in the illustration to not overprint each other, and still have the entire illustration overprint the base of white ink. Possible?
