Error or warning when overprinting on white objects in Adobe Illustrator

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi Gurus,

I was using Adobe Illustrator and was trying overprinting on a white object when I got this message, see below.  I was not sure what it meant though.  When I pressed the button proceed, it looked fine but when it was printed, it turned out not okay. 

Is there a work around for this issue?  Please help.


The selection includes process white objects. Overprinting such objects is only useful in combination with transparency effects.

Error or warning when overprinting on white objects in Adobe Illustrator


Which print were you using because when you print in Adobe illustrator using a non postscript then objects may not be printed or better still they may print but not correctly. PostScript print problems show in different forms in Adobe illustrator, text or other objects may miss from the print or partially be printed or system errors or freezes occur. To print on a non PostScript printer follow this steps: either update or reinstall printer driver, ensure changing of Bitmap printer options in illustrator, use enhance PLC, then switch to a standard window video card driver, change the printing layer option to All layers.set a PostScript printer as a default. Printing to a local printer. If after all this steps you cannot print then save the file as a pdf then print for another application then print to another printer.
