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, Clear Cards, Dice, Acrylic, Foil Cards and Mint Tins, you will need to use a shade of white other than pure white (#FFFFFF). If you use pure white in your image, no color will be printed where the white is, and the underlying color of the component will show through in that section.
Booster Packs cannot be printed with any shade of white 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.

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.
