Direct to Garment

Overview

DTG or Direct to Garment printing is the newest apparel printing technology. It’s sort of like printing on paper, except on a t-shirt. We can print just about any design directly onto the garment with no setup fees. DTG uses specialty water-based inks, which are absorbed by the fibers of the garment.

- There a few distinct advantages to DTG printing,

- No minimum order requirements.

- No need to take ink colors or into consideration. Your custom t-shirt design can have as many print colors as you want. 

- Great for print on demand business models. 

- Low upfront cost and no need to inventory designs. We can print the shirts as you need them.

Expected results & considerations

Direct to Garment printing is not the best solution for all situations. Here are some things you should consider. 

- Not cost-effective for large batches. Once you are over 24 items, you should start considering screen printing. 

- DTG has limited design placement options, no whacky pocket prints. 

- Unlike screen printing, DTG printing does not get much cheaper with quantity it's always the same unit cost. 

- Not as durable as traditional screen printing. 

- Not as vibrant on dark colors as traditional screen printing.
