Create a mask or layer for each spot color you want to print using only black. When printing spot colors anything on the mask in black will be printed in the spot color. For foils, print a couple of layers of black ink before you print the foil to get a very good effect. Remember to check the overlay option so the paper doesn't get ejected.

My problem is in my Alps MD 1300. Two layers of white print without problems, but when I print CMYK over white horizontal lines appear about ruining my work. I use "white Based (MDC-OPWH)"...


The MDC-OPWH is Opaque White. It's meant to be used as an overcoat when making things like Iron-On transfers when they are applied on dark backgrounds. Regular white is used for undercoating for things like waterslide decals.

Double check that none of your printer's jets is blocked (test page!) and convince Print Shop and your printer's settings that your process colors are the ones in the printer, e.g. RGB or CMYK versus CKMY, 7-color, etc.

I'm looking for the manual for the Alps MD-1300 printer, I need to know how to print spot colors


The 1300 prints spot colors the same way as the other ALPS printers. To print spot colors, create a mask or layer using only black with your artwork. Select the spot color you want and the black areas on the mask will be printed in the spot color. Make sure that you check the overlay box so the printer retains the printer. You also need to make sure you are using the ALPS printer driver supplied with the printer and NOT the default Windows plug and play driver.

You could try using spot colors for each layer of the decal. This gives you the highest resolution.

White ink printing with alps MD 5000


To print white, you need to use the spot color option in the printer properties. The object to be printed must be all black. It seems counter to what you might think, but the spot color mode will print the solid black areas as the selected spot color.

The ALPS MD5500 is capable of both making white undercoat for CMYK colors and white overcoat (more opaque than white undercoat).
MD5500 is produced mainly for the Japanese market only with a Japanese driver.
But you can get the printer here- with english driver :-)): http://www.alps-supplies.com/alps-md5500-microdry-printer-with-english-drivers-p-28.html

I caint get my alps5000 to print out silver and gold foil


First of all, are you tring to just print gold foil, or a multicoloured image, including gold?

If it's just gold, ensure that on your artwork, everything to be printed is black. Click File -> Print, and click Properties.When the printer dialogue pops up, select Spot Colour, and click the Spot Colour button. Select Single Ink, and Select Gold Foil.
