HOW IT WORKS

 

Direct to Garment Printing or "DTG" printers use water-based chemistry and a unique curing process. A pre-treatment is heat-pressed into your garment chemically preparing them to accept ink forming a long lasting durable bond. The heat also straightens and pressed the fibers for crisp, no mess prints. The garment is then positioned onto a platten and printed with your design in a high tech version of the process used by your home or office printer. This means highly detailed full color designs are possible with no need to compromise and no extra cost. Because the inks are water-based, they print best on organic fibers like cotton, bamboo, hemp, and linen.

When should I use
Direct to Garment Printing?

Direct to Garment Printing is ideal for small print runs where detail and durability are most important. We recomend it for any project with less than 36 pieces.

Garments created with this technique are soft to the touch without that "plastic" feeling common to Screen Printing or Vinyl decorated garments.

Strengths

- No Minimums.

- No Maximum Colors.

- Extremely Durable.

- Preserves Complex Details.

- Soft "part of the fabric" feeling.

- No special art files.

Limitations

- Screen Printing is more economical in bulk quantities.

- CMYK color printing can't reproduce certain colors in maximum saturation.

- Only works on garments made with at least 50% natural fibers.
