  1. can they be printed over each other? I'm sure they can be but not sure about the end result.
  2. are uv inks available in all colors (like black)? yes but black would be visible with the naked eye more easily than other UV inks, as all UV inks are still somewhat visible
  3. will GID inks work on it's own on dark tees? don't think so
  4. is it feasible to use two color of GID? sure
  5. can uv inks be simulated processed? don't think so, but maybe if uv inks come in a whole array of colors

    I just saw alec something somethings latest sub which is UV and has a shitload of colors, it was accepted, so do whatever he did.

I remember asking customer service if UV and glow inks could be printed over each other for my imaginary friend shirt, and they told me they would probably decline it if I did due to misuse of specialty inks or something. . . anyway, I was told it couldn't be done.

also, I don't think UV ink could be used in simulated process style, but I'm not 100% sure

when i asked craig, there were only a few UV inks to pick from and you can not print them over each other (no overlapping of UV inks). and UV ink only works best on white/silver/creme colored shirts. the UV ink is semi-transparent and will pick up the color of the shirt, so if you had a red UV ink on a light blue shirt, you might get a purplish color instead.

thanks! I'm bothered though if I can't really use red glow on red tee.. I think it'll work? but not as strong as it's on light colors, right?

here's a quick blurb from the specialty inks guide but no mention of # of colors

UV Color Change
To begin with, UV Color Change ink doesn't work on
dark tees at all. If you're still interested in using it...
read on! With this ink, colors disappear indoors but
appear when exposed to any ultraviolet light. The
colors achieved are bright but tend to lack vividness
of regular inks due to their translucent nature. Color
remains true on light colored tees such as white,
cream or silver. The ink will appear on other light
shirt colors, but is unpredictable. In other words, the
shirt color affects the color of the ink.
