WHOLESALE DIGITAL T-SHIRT PRINTING!

WHAT IS DTG PRINTING?

THE FUTURE OF APPAREL PRINTING

null

DTG Printing aka DTG Direct to Garment Shirt Printing, Digital Direct to Garment Printing, Digital Apparel Printing is a process of printing on textiles, t-shirts, and other garments using specialized or modified inkjet technology. Digital t-shirt printing have come a long way in the past few years and can now print on black garments, cotton blends, and last countless washes. DTG Printers use a special textile ink which prints the ink directly onto a fabric that we pre-treat in house. These inks are absorbed by the fibers of the garment. DTG Printers are extremely precise in terms of color and photograph quality. With Digital printing you’re able to achieve unlimited colors and detail which screen printing was not able to achieve. DTG Printing does not have any minimums or costly initial set up fee’s.
