Direct to Garment printing-Digital


Direct to garment printing, also known as DTG printing, digital direct to garment printing, digital apparel printing, and inkjet to garment printing, is a process of printing on textiles and garments using specialized or modified inkjet technology.

The printer will print the graphic directly on the garment – printing a single pass of CMYK ink for a light colored garment, or two passes for a dark colored garment – first a white ink “underbase” and then the CMYK ink.

Dark colored garments also require pretreatment before printing so that the white ink underbase adheres to the garment, allowing the colors to stand out instead of being lost in the dark color of the garment.

A primary advantage of DTG printing is the lack of set-up costs and instant turnaround time not associated with traditional garment printing methods such as screen printing.Also Digital printing is best used for items that require high amounts of detail, and orders of a smaller quantity.

Digitally printed graphics feel much softer on garments than any other method. When properly cured and cared for, the impression will last as long as the life of the shirt because the ink permanently adheres to the fabric.

Please note that a Full-Color Print requires an image with a resolution of 300 DPI (dots per inch).
