Full color DTF with white under - I reduced the white quite a bit.  We are trying to get the gradients to fade to black but the white shows through the very lightest gradients.  Does anybody hack a trick or a hack to make the white fade out at the edges?  Using Flexi DTF Pro 22.  Trying to not get the white glow halo effect.

Halftone dots or some other design effect.
 

You can’t get a transparency edge effect from a solid ink reliably that I am aware of. That or some other design element that transitions the white to a black edge for a black shirt.

I played around with the tolerance and  decreasing white coverage % but even if there is only 1% of any color in an area, it is going to apply white which overpowers the color.  I am just going to say no, we really can't do the fade to black because I can't imagine having to explain to preflight that he has to create masks with spot color that only print under solids, not gradients...

Yep. I mean some rips can print up to a level of transparency and fade the under base, but again requires much more effort and testing for each image to get it right. 
 

i just outright don’t do it.
