DTG Printing, or Direct to Garment Printing to give it its full name is helping to revolutionise the printing industry.
Commonly used on garments such as T-Shirts which are made of cotton or cotton blends, recent developments in technology have allowed for superior performance on light coloured polyester and cotton/poly blends.
Colourful Designs Have Never Looked Better
Whereas screen-printing is absolutely ideal for longer runs that 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 the quickest of all and jobs can sometimes be turned round in a couple of days.
Utilising our DTG printing skills is ideal for a wide range of projects, including:
- Customised T-Shirts – For producing sample printed shirts before going into full production.
- Promotional Clothing – If you want to spread the word regarding your company or brand DTG printing can be perfect!
- Stag/Hen Do T-Shirts – Small runs of multi-coloured designs
- T-Shirt Design – If you just want one or a few shirts printed using your own ideas.
How Does it 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 rigorously tested to prevent such problems from occurring.
