Direct To Garment GTX DTG

You must be wondering what direct to garment (DTG) printing is. Let me introduce to you to arguably the new method of digital printing that will transform and eliminate screen printing forever. As the name clearly defines it direct to garment printing is a method that sprays the ink directly to the garment. The ink rapidly soaks & dries into the fibers of the garment directly like printing on paper. This technology was conceived, researched, developed and commercially produced by major photocopier-printer manufactures.

The main advantage of DTG is that it is easy to print one-offs because there’s no setup time. Moreover it offers a lot of color option which means you can print detailed designs and photorealistic images. Hence it’s more sustainable in a fashion business model

Both DTG and screen-printing offer high quality prints. However,

Let’s compare the benefits of DTG printing to screen printing;

  1. High speed garment printing.
  2. Controlled Ink Printing for little to no ink wastage.
  3. Low labor cost. Single person operations.
  4. Screen printing does not offer detailed designs unlike DTG which is good for designs with different colors.
  5. With DTG there’s unlimited color pallet but screen printing has limited color pallets.
  6. Color contrast can be digitally adjusted to regulate ink consumption per print.
  7. There’s a minimum order when using screen printing whilst DTG you can print on demand.
  8. It is more sustainable to use DTG, has no set-up costs.
  9. Eco-friendly low power consumption modes
  10. Clean working spaces guaranteed.
