What is Direct to Garment (DTG) Printing?
Direct to Garment printing works similar to your inkjet desktop printer.
The unique garment ink is deposited directly onto the shirt, with no
burning of screens, setup, or registration involved!
Traditionally, one screen has to be burned for each color to be printed,
this increased the cost for multiple color jobs, and limits the range
of colors available. Direct to garment printing allows for unlimited
colors to be printed with no added cost.
Since there are no screens and no setup, there is no minimum. You can
have one or ten shirts printed, or have ten shirts printed, each with
a different image. This is especially ideal for family reunions, small
businesses, or anything you need personalized.
I’ve seen photographs on shirts before, how is this different?
The most common method for reproducing a photograph onto a shirt is
by using a heat transfer. DTG printing is NOT a heat
transfer. Heat transfers are heat pressed onto the shirt, causing problems
with washability and stiffness. In DTG printing, the ink is applied
directly to the shirt, allowing for a flexible feel with no stiffness.
This allows the print to be soft and - stretch it as far as you want,
your image will not crack or peel. For best results, wash your DTG printed
shirts inside out in cold water, to keep them looking good for years.
When should I use Direct to Garment Printing?
Direct to Garment printing is perfect for jobs where multiple colors
would be too costly, or where detail, accurate color reproduction, or
clarity is a strong issue, for small runs, or for personalization. Screen
printing often requires a minimum order because of the time and cost
involved to set up a job. Since there are no screens and no setup in
Direct to Garment printing, printing one shirt is as easy as printing
one hundred. This is ideal for small companies, printing for resale
purposes, or printing samples.
When should I use screen printing?
DTG printing is often more affordable on smaller runs involving multiple
colors, however many small run jobs involving large block text or a
1-color imprint should be screen printed. We will help you decide whether
silk screening or DTG printing is right for your job.
