WHAT IS DTG PRINTING?

Direct to Garment printing is the process of printing full-colour images onto garments using specialised or modified inkjet technology.  With DTG printing the t shirt is moved into the printer via a plate and then specialty inks are applied to the garment directly which are then absorbed by the fibres on the fabric, leaving a print that is both soft to the touch and will not fade easily in the wash.

The inks that we use in our DTG printers are almost always water-based which means that they are both completely safe and environmentally friendly. Some printing techniques require the use of harsher chemicals which is not sustainable and can be bad for the environment.

With DTG, there are minimum setup costs as there is no need for screens or any other setup – this means a much cheaper printing technique for you. As your artwork file is printed directly onto the garment, it also means that the time taken to produce your printed garments is significantly reduced as well. In fact; DTG is one of the quickest printing methods available.

 

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

With DTG printing, there are no set up fees or minimum orders as there is no need for screens or any other setup – this means a much cheaper printing technique for you. As your artwork file is printed directly onto the garment, it also means that the time taken to produce your printed garments compared to other print methods is significantly reduced as well.
