DTG Printing FAQ
Direct to Garment
What is DTG printing?
DTG printing is a digital print process. It's no different than using a printer on your computer. But instead of printing paper, it prints shirts. Unlike screen printing, DTG printing is capable of printing just about any image with zero setup time. This means that printing 1 shirt, regardless of color count, is possible.
There are many pros to DTG printing, but there are also a couple of restrictions. Here's a brief list of restrictions associated with DTG printing
1. Garments must be 100% cotton only. This isn't really a problem with T-Shirts. There are many selections available. However with sweaters and hoodies, we only offer 1 brand.
2. Images/Designs must be high resolution. Low resolution images will not produce a good print.
3. No ink color matching. We don't have much control when it comes to ink colors. The machine is digital and reads the information in the file. Additionally if your artwork has flourescent colors in it, these won't show up as vibrant as you want them to.
4. No safety colored shirts. Safety Green, Safety Yellow, Safety Orange, etc.
5. Pretreat box. When we print using DTG, we have to pretreat your shirt first. So the shirt will have a BOX and a STAIN from the pretreat. It does release once washed.
