Offering Outstanding Finishes
Commonly used on garments such as t-shirts which are made of cotton or cotton blends, recent developments in direct print to garment technology has allowed us to attain superior performance on light coloured polyester and cotton/poly blends.
Whereas screen-printing is absolutely ideal for longer runs which require few colours, DTG printing the associated costs really begin to come into their own with short runs of colourful designs.
As is the case with screen-printing, prices for DTG printing come down for larger orders. DTG printing is quickest of all and jobs can sometimes be turned round in a couple of days.
How Does Direct to Print Garment Actually Work?
Essentially, DTG printers are bigger versions of the standard desktop inkjet printer which are commonly found in homes and offices throughout the country. The difference being that these specialist printers use a unique type of specifically formulated pigment ink which, when combined with a fusing agent ensures that, when the design has been printed and heat pressed on the garments, the fusing agent enables the inks to permanently adhere to the fibres of the fabric.
The outcome is a high quality, vibrant coloured print that is extremely durable and long lasting. So if you are worried about instant fading of your design, fear no more, as the inks have been developed and vigorously tested to prevent such problems occurring.
