Printing With White Ink
Printing with white ink on non-paper based items is not as straightforward as it might seem.
When using our service for items like Custom-printed Meeples, Dice, Acrylic, and Mint Tins we have to take a few extra steps to make sure we print white ink only where we want it.
Booster Packs can not be printed with white ink at all.
A note on .PNG transparency: files you submit to The Game Crafter are in .PNG format which supports transparency information. Pixels that are 100% transparent in your .PNG file are read as 100% white pixels when our printer software loads your image, so for the sake of this article 100% transparent is the same as 100% white.
How these images printed.
The image submitted here is a transparent .PNG image.
Here is a transparent .PNG image where the white code is not pure white and the white is printed on the Mint Tin.
Here is an example of what can happen when you load an image with pure white and how it will print on the Mint Tin.
