What is direct to garment printing?

Direct to Garment (DTG) printing is a relatively new technology which is excellent for accurately reproducing photos, illustrations and intricate full colour designs. DTG printing produces best print results on t-shirts and garments with 100% cotton content. Using DTG printing for items with a high polyester content is not currently possible. 


The advantage of DTG printing when compared to screen printing is the faster turnaround time and low set up costs, which makes it a more cost effective solution when printing low volume runs (up to 100). Especially when a design that features a number of different colours is required. Direct to garment printing is ideal for garments that have at least a 50% cotton content and is an ideal print method for intricate, detailed designs that include multiple colours.
