Direct to Garment Printing

(DTG) Direct to Garment Digital Printing. No setup costs. Full Colour Prints!

What is Direct to Garment Printing?
Direct to Garment Printing or DTG for short, is the process where by a digital inkjet printer prints your art file direct from a computer to your t-shirt garment without the use of any screens, films or setups. The ink is printed directly on top of the garment, using a light-weight water based ink which ‘stains’ the fabric with your image. The ink is a very light-weight ink and if you run your fingers across the t-shirt you would find the ink to be more of a soft touch, without really feeling much ink on the t-shirt, as opposed to a thicker screen printed style of ink.

Generally the inks found in a DTG printer have been specifically formulated to:

– Allow for washing of garments in a cold wash environment
– Excellent vibrant colour reproduction, without any “cracking of prints”
– Allow you to print onto Dark garments using a white base ink technique
– When printing onto a white garment, there is no need to lay down any
white ink, just the colour layer

In the Kornit Digital Printers the inks used are 100% non-hazardous, toxin free and adhere to high environmental standards.
Most DTG Printers also have the ability to print onto other fabrics such as Canvas Tote Bags, 80% Cotton Hoodies, Cotton Rich Fabric and White Polyester materials.

Results usually found between a white and a dark garment both printed with the same image would usually have a slight variation in colour. Generally white garments only need 1 coat of ink for printing. Where as a dark garment requires a base white coat + colour.

Personalise your own garment using the latest in technology. We use only the leader in digital printing - The Kornit. DTG is ideal for fulfilling short run orders, meaning it can print one t-shirt or 100+ custom tees without problems or wastage.

On some dark garments such as a black shirts, we usually apply two coats of white ink, so the colour image will result rich in colour.
