Direct to garment (DTG) printing is most commonly implemented on garments that are made of cotton or cotton blends, although recent developments in technology have allowed for superior performance on light colored polyester and cotton/poly blends. DTG printing on dark garments is now being accomplished by a number of different manufacturers. Dark garments must first be pre-treated which is a time consuming costly and hard to perfect process.
DTG Printing - Direct To Garment Printing, also called custom T-shirt Printing, or Digital printing utilizes the latest technology to provide a solution to printing smaller orders (less than 24 pieces) with an almost unlimited number of colors in the design. For many customers, this is a great way to get full color prints on just a few shirts.
Screenprinting an order that size with a large number of colors had previously been cost-prohibitive before the advent of DTG Printing. The process works much like an traditional inkjet computer printer, but for apparels!
