Direct to Garment (DTG) printing is an alternative to screen printing that is designed for 100% ringspun cotton T-shirts. A DTG printer is very similar to a large ink jet printer, only it prints directly on top of clothing using special ink designed for textiles. It’s ideal for T-shirt designs that demand full-color, shadows or gradients, which include photographs and high-resolution images or logos containing a variety of different colors. DTG printing is optimal for small orders, where screens would not be cost effective, and resizes, where the standard size of an image needs to be reduced down to fit on youth sizes or onesies. If you are looking for a lot of colors on not a lot of shirts, DTG is the answer.
