Glossary of Printing Terms:
Underbasing

When silk screening on dark shirts, the print normally needs a white layer of ink under the colors to allow the colors to be bright on the garment.

This layer of ink is called an Underbase. Most underbases are white and need to be flash-cured before another color can be printed on top. Some designs have more than one white underbase.
