Tayda UV Printing

I was thinking about using taydas UV printing service but am a little confused on layering colours. I've converted the image to an svg file but I'm not sure if it's ok to have overlapping colours. Would this work?

Edit: Inkscape sucks. Used illustrator and it is working perfectly.

On the tayda UV printing page they make a point of not having colors overlap and show you what to do. Probably have to clean up the overlap and merge them or subtract like I had to in affinity.

Is there a way to merge an entire image at once in affinity or Inkscape? I put an image through a vectorizing tool and it has a ton of overlap that I can’t figure out how to fix..

Does affinity have an option to merge only visible layers? Like an auto mode? I'm using inkscape and I think I would have to go through and select every single overlapping path. There are 100's in this vector...

Honesty I think you have to do that in most programs. But don't quote me on that as I just started using affinity designer a couple weeks ago.

Ok got it figured out. Turns out Inkscape is crap. I used adobe illustrator and it is working perfectly. There's an issue in Inkscape with anti aliasing.
