There are many options and processes to take into effect before into producing a piece of apparel. It is our goal to educate you about those options so you can decide on the best option for your apparel. Direct to garment printing allows you to print an image digitally (similar to a paper printer). There are no screens, setup, and you can print full color.
What is Direct to Garment printing?
Direct-to-garment (DTG), involves printing directly onto a cotton garment and curing the ink with a heat press.
When to print DTG?
DTG printing is ideal for designs that are full-color, have gradients or shading, include photographs and high-resolution images or images containing a variety of different colors. DTG printing is optimal for small orders, where screens would not be cost effective, or orders where the same image needs to be resized for different shirts (adult to youth prints). If you are looking to print full color on a low quantity of shirts, DTG is usually the best option.
Direct to Garment printing feel softer on garments than other print method. This is because the ink permanently adheres to the shirt fibers. The imprint will last as long as the life of the shirt. For best results with DTG printing, we recommend only using 100% cotton or 80/20 garments.
