Direct to garment (DTG) Printing
DTG Printing uses inkjet technology to print high quality full colour and photographic prints directly on to a t-shirt.
DTG printing machines have massive colour mixing potential, allowing them to print tiny details. This makes them suitable for designs or artwork that would normally be considered too complex for other screen-printing methods.
DTG is also the best option for small print runs (1-5 t-shirts).
Pros of direct-to-garment printing
- No colour restrictions: You can print with as many colours as you want!
- Time efficient: You can have a shirt printed in less than 30 minutes.
- Comfortable: As DTG machines inject ink directly into the fabric, you won’t feel the print on the garment.
Cons of direct-to-garment printing
- DTG printers are designed to print only on fabrics with high amounts of cotton (preferably 100%) The more cotton a shirt has, the more vivid the colours will be.
