Direct To Garment Printing

Direct to garment printing also known as Digital printing or DTG is a great way to print small orders with multiple colors and save some money. Direct to garment printing works by printing on a garment using a modified or specialized inkjet technology. The direct to garment printing machine is just like your basic inkjet desktop printer that you use to print on paper. The direct to garment printing machine is driven by RIP also known as Raster Image Processor. The RIP program allows you to print using much larger volumes of ink for your image being printed.

Direct To Garment Printing

In order to get the best quality print with direct to garment printing it is recommended for the items to be 100% cotton or a cotton blend. When doing direct to garment printing on dark colors the garments must be pretreated before printing them or the image will not show up clear at all. The direct to garment printing has a transport mechanism for the garments that uses specialty inks to apply to the garments directly and is absorbed by the cotton fibers in the garment.

With direct to garment printing you can have a minimum order of just one shirt and the direct to garment images look much better then vinyl which would be another way you could have a minimum of 1 item. But with the direct to garment you can have fun with the images. Maybe your mom’s 60th birthday is coming up and you want to have a shirt made for her with an image of you and her when you were younger, you can do all that with digital printing but you cannot do that with vinyl. You can also have words printed with direct to garment printing and they will look way cooler than vinyl would.
