DTG - Direct to Garment


WHAT IS DIRECT TO GARMENT (DTG) PRINTING?

You can think about digital printing, or direct to garment printing, as a similar process to printing a document from your computer. An image is created with no restraints to the number of colors or type of artwork used, and the image is printed or affixed directly onto the material. With embroidery and screen printing, you are dealing with physical resources (thread and ink) to create a logo; with digital printing, full color, high-definition logos can be done economically, even in small quantities.

Benefits

• Easier set up than screen printing – no screen creation or color separation required.

• Ability to print more precise details in a broader range of colors.

• Great for smaller order sizes.

Cons

• Not ideal for large orders as the production speed can be slower than other methods.

• The printable area is limited to the printer’s size, which means larger designs can not always be accommodated.

• Depending on the fabric of the item, digital printing sometimes requires a pretreatment solution to help the ink adhere to the fabric, this can add to the cost and production time of your project.

• Limited washability as the design may not hold up over a long period of time.
