So. What Exactly Is DTG Printing?
First off, don’t confuse DTG printing with those cheap, iron-on style transfers of yesteryear that are infamous for fading and cracking after a single wash. No, the DTG process is a relatively new printing method that produces incredibly high-quality artwork that will stay put for years to come.
DTG or direct to garment is also sometimes called digital garment printing, digital apparel printing, and inkjet to garment printing. If you see those phrases anywhere it’s the same thing, but we prefer DTG.
Essentially, DTG printing is a process of printing graphics onto textiles and garments. It uses modified inkjet technology to print whatever graphic you want onto the shirt. Think of it like a giant inkjet printer, but for shirts. Rather than printing out boring thesis papers or flyers for your book club, our DTG machines are printing your badass designs. Basically, if you can get it into the computer, I can get it onto a shirt for you to wear.
What type of designs work best with DTG?
DTG printers offer extensive color options which means you can print detailed designs and photorealistic images with virtually no color limitations. This can be important for those businesses that want to experiment with color and design.
