Direct to Garment

The process

Direct to Garment printing is essentially inkjet printing fabric ink directly on to T-shirts in full colour. This process can produce photographic prints so virtually any image or gradient is possible. DTG will print on to coloured cotton fabric and is most cost effective in shorter runs of any colour, or larger quantites of white garments.

Advantages and limitations

Direct to garment printing is fully photographic, so it's excellent for full colour designs with a lot of gradients, giving a perfectly smooth colour transition. The print process on white T-shirts is different to on colour T-shirts. For colour t-shirts we print a thicker white underbase, which gives the print some 'feel' similar to screen print. On white T-shirts there is virtually no feel to the print, as there is no white ink and the colour just sinks in to the T-shirt. DTG is most cost effective in shorter runs of up to 50 units, due to having no set up costs.
