What is Direct to Garment Printing?

Direct to Garment (DTG) is a relatively new technology that prints shirts like a CMYK printer prints paper. It is perfect for high-color designs, and leaves a lighter and more comfortable print than the other methods.  

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between DTG and screen printing?

Screen printing and direct to garment (DTG) both produce similar, quality prints, but differ in method. Screen printing involves manually pushing ink through screens onto the garment, one color at a time. DTG works like a regular printer and prints ink directly onto the garment using CMYK ink.

Why use DTG over screen printing?

DTG is more cost effective if you want high-color prints but aren’t ordering a lot of shirts. It requires far less setup than screen printing. It also produces a lighter and more comfortable print than screen printing.
