Direct to Garment Printing

About

  • Direct to Garment (DTG) Printing is great for replicating photographs, illustrations or full colour designs onto both light and dark colours.
  • No set up costs, meaning it’s a cheaper alternative to screen printing on short runs (Minimum Order: 10 items).
  • Printing onto dark colours will feel slightly ‘thicker’ than printing onto whites because a white underbase layer is required to ensure the print is bright and vibrant.

For direct to garment printing, we use large commercial Kornit printers. They produce excellent results onto both white and coloured garments and function in a similar way to your desktop inkjet printer.

One printed the garments are heat treated so the ink permanently adheres to the fibres which makes it durable and washable.

More about digital (DTG) printing
What is Direct To Garment (DTG) Printing?

Direct to Garment printing is the newest and most exciting way to print onto garments. Direct To Garment (DTG) Printing involves the use of a highly modified inkjet printer with specially formulated garment inks which are heat set with a heat press or tunnel dryer. Unlike screen printing artwork files, Direct To Garment Printing files do not require any layer separation, or any films/screen prep. Once your artwork is ready on the computer it is ready to output directly onto the garment.

Because of the lack of steps required for Digital Printing, small orders or “one offs” can be quickly and economically produced in a seemingly infinite number of colors – whilst also handling complex artwork with ease. Production times for DTG is similar to transfer printing, but much quicker than screen printing. With DTG digital garment printing there is virtually no “hand” (common term in the industry referring to how a garment feels once the design has been printed on it) on light and white garments and minimal feel on dark garments.

Are there any garments that take to DTG printing better than others?

For the best results print onto items with a tighter weave, Direct to Garment Printing will print better onto t-shirts rather than polo shirts for example. A garment with a fabric composition of 100% cotton or a poly cotton blend will produce excellent print results. Other fabric types such as nylon or polyester shouldn’t be DTG printed, transfer printing would be advised here.

Colours when viewed on-screen may vary slightly when printed. For the designers of you out there - if you require a close colour match, please feel free to supply us with a CMYK colour code PSD file.

How to Care for your DTG Printed Garment

Wash inside out on a cold or 30 degree setting. Line dry or machine dry on delicate setting.
