Direct To Garment Printing

The term Direct To Garment Printing is used to describe a little brother of screen printing.  In the traditional screen printing process, silk screens are used to create designs for T-Shirts and ink is forced through the screens to create a design which is then cured with heat.

When Direct To Garment Printing is used, the process is exactly what it sounds like, printing directly on the garment without the need for screens.

Direct To Garment Printing equipment ranges in price from $20K on the low end up to over $100K on the high end.  The difference in price usually relates to speed and quality.  Most entry level machines that the vast majority of screen printers have are slow, and take many processes to work right.

As an example, the garment has to be “pre-treated” with special chemicals so that the Direct To Garment Printing ink will adhere.  Then it has to be dried.  Then re-loaded into the printer and printed, then dried again.

Direct To Garment Printing is handy when you have a multiple color job that is small in size.  The customer saves on screen setups and it’s a lot less work.  However, once you get into volume, Direct To Garment Printing becomes more expensive that traditional screen printing.
