DTG - Direct to Garment Printing
As the name implies, Direct to Garment uses ink to print directly on the fabrics. The ink soaks into the fibres of the fabric, meaning it has a relatively soft handle to the touch. The modified DTG ink also prevents the printed area from cracking or peeling. DTG printers support the most detailed and versatile design, with a wide range of colour options.
Because a DTG printer works like a regular printer and requires no set up time, it is a great option for a one-off print or a short run, and it can support detailed and broad design. While not cost-effective for extremely large batches, DTG has its place in the world of garment customisation and is perfect for short productions runs or one offs for highly colourful designs. Though it’s limited to cotton fabrics, it makes up for this with incredible capacity for detail and extensive colour options.
