Can I print the clear ink over the color ink before it is dry?

For best results, ensure the color ink is dry prior to overprinting it with the clear ink, except when using simultaneous clear applications like the DCS InkMark™ print modes. In normal production, this will occur with standard print times. For small samples, insure the color image is dry by either delaying the clear ink pass or utilizing "full width print" in the print options portion of your printer package.
