I know that in the silkscreen process, you sometimes lay down a white base before printing the brighter colors on top. Should I be counting this as one of my six colors? (There's nothing about it in the Submission page, but I know of at least one website that does this. I just want to be sure)

    Yes, if there's a white base layer it will count as one of the 6 ink colors. No white base layer is needed for light shirt colors, but dark colored shirts often need one.

    Thank you for the quick response. I only lament the time I spent on a design not knowing this beforehand.

    So black isn't the only color requiring a white base? I thought it was. How do you know when a shirt is too dark. Also, if you need a white base and you need white in the design, does the base count?
