What is Direct to Garment?
Direct to Garment Printing means just what is sounds like! A DTG Printer operates as a specialized ink jet printer designed to apply an image to a T-shirt just like your home printer applies one to a piece of paper. Of course, because the medium is different, the inks are different and because it’s a commercial process the printer is a LITTLE larger and more complex.
The biggest advantages to using a DTG Printer to create a custom t shirts are:
- Easy Operation – you do need to know a bit about graphics so you can create a great image, but preparing and printing a shirt a simple.
- Variable Output – You can print one, two or twenty shirts of one design, put a different name on each, re-size the graphics – all with no more set up time or cost.
- Fast Turnaround Time – this makes your customers HAPPY! If you’re starting with a good graphic, you can go from image to finished shirt in under 10 minutes.
- Good for Home Office or Small Business – when using a pretreatment machine with your DTG Printer, you can run your operation in a bedroom OR back office.
