Direct-to-garment, or DTG, is a printing method that sprays ink onto the garment. The ink then soaks into the fibers of the garment. It’s like printing on paper, but on clothing. DTG printing is the way to go if you want a t-shirt with an elaborate design and tons of colors. While other printing methods limit the amount of colors in your design, DTG can handle a virtually limitless color palette.
Direct to Garment Pros:
Ability to print full-color designs at no extra cost
Capable of printing highly detailed images, like photographs
Perfect for a small batch of shirts, as there is no minimum order requirement
Highly effective on cotton but not as effective on other substrates, such as polyester blends
Color gamut limitation
Not ideal for mass production
Screen Printing is the way to go if you want a cost-effective way of printing large numbers of shirts.
