Direct to Garment printing allows us to provide short run or rush jobs at an effective price for a very high quality garment.
Printing with DTG is much simpler than screen print or silkscreen and can produce high quality results in a short amount of time, typically with no setup fees. If you think about it, its basically like your desktop printer at home but for apparel.
Direct to Garment is best suited for 100% cotton apparel or accessories but other applications do exist. We choose the best quality apparel and accessories available when printing this way. It ensures that the prints are vibrant, durable and will last through many washes.
Pricing is a little different for the direct to garment process. Instead of incurring art or setup charges per color, like in screen printing, DTG prints carry a higher “per piece” price but avoid setup fees for screens and films. This is ideal for short run or fulfillment type sales. There are still quantity discounts available.
Direct to garment printing, also known as DTG printing, digital direct to garment printing, digital apparel printing, D2, and inkjet to garment printing, is a process of printing on textiles and garments using specialized or modified ink jet technology. The three key requirements for a DTG printer are a way to hold the garment in a fixed position, an inkjet print head, and specialty inks (inkjet textile inks) that are applied to the textile directly by the print head and are absorbed by the garment’s fibers. – Wikipedia
