Creating Screen Printing Transparencies (Canon ix6820)

Post by chasman » Thu Jun 11, 2020 10:57 pm

I am using a Canon ix6820 and PrintFAB Pro XL 1.13 for screen printing transparencies. I have black ink in all the cartridges. I cannot get the black to print dark enough. What settings do I need to change to get the black to print really dark? Thank you

Please use the following settings:

If black density is still too low, you can increase the "Screen Ink Saturation" value.

General remarks:

The "Special settings screen printings" are only available in the version PrintFab Pro XL.

For users with a Canon PIXMA iX6820 / iX6850 printer and a regular CMYK + Photo Black ink cartridge set, the following settings are recommended:

If the print is still not dark enough, there are vendors of special ink with better UV blocking and of ink sets that also replace C+M+Y inks by black for better ink coverage. We have a cooperation with the company FilmDirect:
