What is Direct to Garment?

Direct to Garment or DTG Printing is an inkjet technology that is able to print very high-quality, full-color, photographic prints directly onto a t-shirt. DTG offers flexibility over screen-printing in terms of color variation and turn-around time (especially for smaller orders). DTG is the best option for apparel decoration when your image has a lot of colors. DTG printing machines have a huge color mixing potential allowing them to print even the tiniest details.

Advantages of DTG Printing:

  • You can print as many colors as desired since there're no restrictions on colors.
  • Set-up times are low when compared to screen printing. You can have a t-shirt printed in less than 30 minutes.
  • The pattern shows vivid and the color is bright and full and is suitable for large area cloth printing.
  • You won't feel the "print" on the fabric when you touch it since DTG printing machines inject ink directly into the fabric.

What is the Difference Between DTG and Screen Printing?

It differs from screen printing because a digital printer is used to transfer the design directly onto the fabric. If you are looking to print just a few (1-5) t-shirts, DTG Printing is the best option too since it is as easy as loading a blank shirt into the DTG Printing machine and printing directly onto it, whereas screen printing requires you to go through a multi-step, back-breaking process to print your t-shirt.
