DTG is exactly how it sounds.... Images digitally printed DIRECTLY TO THE GARMENT!
We us a Brother GT-341 Industrial DTG machine to print your artwork straight to the shirt.
DTG Has definitely come a long way over the years
IT'S EASY AND AFFORDABLE TO CREATE FULL COLOR CUSTOM T-SHIRTS WTH DTG!
DTG is a convenience-based service intended to accommodate our clients who cannot meet the 72pc minimums of traditional high-color screen printing.
This is NOT REALLY a premium decorating service or our suggested printing method, it is more of a short term solution for High color art on runs12-36 pcs.
You CAN however achieve REALLY COOL vintage prints, photo-realistic art and novelty Tees when combined with specific shirt blanks.
Be sure to let your account rep know about your vision of the finished product so we can be sure to deliver above & beyond your expectations!
DIRECT TO GARMENT PRINTING IS FOR LIGHT COLORED FABRICS ONLY
There is a 12 pc. minimum (per shirt style) for all DTG printed orders. For bulk orders & discounts on orders over 72pcs....See our Screen Printing Service
PRINT FULL-COLOR, PHOTOREALISTIC IMAGES
The functionality of a DTG machine is similar in fashion to a regular paper printer, expect it prints on t-shirts. Our DTG printer uses water-based CMYK inks to achieve all colors in the design.
Again, like a conventional paper printer, there is a limit to vibrancy & the pop of the finished print. *DTG cannot produce Florescent colors or SFX effects.
DTG IS AN ECO-FRIENDLY T-SHIRT PRINTING PROCESS
Not only are these inks water-based and more eco-friendly than conventional screen printing inks, but this process also eliminates all other chemicals, materials, power & waste used in traditional t-shirt screen printing making it the most eco-friendly printing alternative.
Ideally, if you really want to customize your apparel with a true “ECO-FRIENDLY” solution, you may want to consider either DTG printing or 1 color water-based or recycled silkscreen printing.
ECO-FRIENDLY, NO SET-UP FEES & FULL-COLOR PRINTING CAPABILITY on as few or as many as you like.
Direct to garment printing is more cost-effective on smaller orders, especially if your design involves many colors. It is priced at a FLAT RATE, so the lack of setup and screen preparation is a saving that we pass on to our customers. However, DTG printing stops being more cost-effective around the 48 piece benchmark when the fees for setup / screens average lower than the DTG flat rate. DTG t-shirts range from $12 – $22 depending on style & print coverage.
Our DTG and screen printing are both of premium quality! The proper printing method depends on your artwork, details of the project, and desired end result. Don’t worry if you’re not very familiar with either printing method! Our associates take all details of your project into consideration to get you the perfect products.
Sometimes yes; the majority of the time, no! It really boils down to the artwork, product and details of your project, so please give us a call to discuss a project like this.
No, we DO NOT recommend DTG printing for your company uniforms. DTG is really great for gag gifts, birthday parties, full-color photographs and photo-realistic artwork, not an everyday work shirt.
We currently only offer our DTG services on white or light-colored shirts that are made of 100% cotton to achieve the highest quality print.
