flexiprint ink bleed choke

When it comes to the cool features Bleed and Choke, most people that has worked with print has a good understanding of Bleed, but what about Choke?

Besides from us looking at what the Choke feature does, we will also be looking at a great way to use these two together.

Alright, guys, In today's video, we're gonna be looking at the difference between the bleed and choke for your printing and this will be in flexi print. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be found on co dot Z A we make sure and easy to watch problem solving videos and we also have daily updates. Otherwise we back into the programme here. So now I'm just gonna open our actual properties of the, um, graphics we've got so we can start looking at the difference. Now. I'm gonna just, uh if you wanna set the bleed and choke, we're gonna go be going to the third panel here on the colour management, and then you will see here by the colour mode, we have an option called choke. Now, once we click this, it will give us two channels. So our white and our varnish and a few different options. Now I'm gonna double click our white, and it will open the editing settings. Otherwise, you can just select it and click edit you at the bar. Now from these settings, I'm gonna zoom in for you guys. You will see we have three different options. We've got choke, we've got bleed and we've got none. Then we've got a setting of how much and then we have the one where it only basically does it when, um, it's generated. So I will leave this one off, and these ones we can set now most of you might be familiar with bleed. So what bleed does is you can select that and choose how far you want that thing to bleed out to the side. So most people are familiar with that, and what choke would do it again does the opposite. It's gonna pull it in. So currently we are on our spot, White or our White Channel. So what can happen often? Why you would want to use these settings? Let's say you're printing on. Uh, you know, you especially see this with different coloured shirts or maybe dark ones. You know what happens is your white will start basically bleeding through the edge. You'll have like, a millimetre or so of white where they you know, no matter how well you did your design, you will see it. And perhaps you don't want that because it looks a bit messy. So if you had to draw that one in just a little bit, then, um, it won't affect the rest of the white. But you you'll have a nice clean edge without having the white overspill. So in order to do that, what you wanna do is you take your white channel, which we've got. Then what we wanna do is we wanna go here to choke click that and then you can obviously set this to any amount. I'm just gonna go one mil for now. So basically, it's gonna take our White Channel and drag it in one mil from our design, depending on the size say OK, and then it should now choke it in a bit. Now what you can do and this is where it's nice. So you can go with the varnish because obviously the varnish is stronger. So let's say you wanna make sure, because on some textiles and that the edge can be quite rough, which means it's gonna quickly wear with time. Or maybe it's not damaging. So then what you wanna do is with your actual, um, varnish, we're gonna select bleed. So with the bleed selected, we can. I'm gonna make a one mil. You can do whatever works for you. Now it's gonna make our varnish go a little bit over the edge, which is gonna make our edge of our design way stronger and make the overall print way more durable for the long run. So then I'm gonna say OK, and, uh but for now, let me just I'm gonna just set these a bit more extreme, but that's what you would normally do in a normal design. I'm gonna make this maybe about five and then make this 15 just for the previous so we can actually see it nice. Say OK And then we wanna go to our preview tab. Click preview. I'm gonna put our black on so we can kind of see the edging. And now I'm gonna add So first the white. So the white we pulled in. So now you can see. Like I said, it's a bit extreme, but you can see we've pulled the white in nicely there all along the edge, so it will make sure it doesn't have a little white border prints, um, in our final design and then when the varnish to make it stronger. You can see we've gone over the edge and now it means this edges will be nicely sealed and durable. Yeah, otherwise, that is it On the, um, bleeds or the the bleed and the choke. I said you wanna set it under your actual colour management setting by that low choke setting and then, in general practises you want I mean, you can change if you're going for more cartoony. You want a nice white border to separate your design from the T shirt, Then by all means, make your white to bleed. But, um, you know, in this case where I'm using it, I want my choke. I mean, my bleed Sorry, my white to be choked a little bit. So it pulls in and I want my varnish to be bled or bleed. And I wanna push it out a little bit to make it stronger and cleaner design. Yeah, otherwise, that is it. On the both, Um, in the Meanwhile, if we head here to co dot Z A. You guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover, and you can also isolate your search on the top or right.
