We wanted a softer feel to our shirts, something more environmentally friendly.  After 9 years of utilizing several types of apparel printing methods, we were at a crossroads.  Where to go next? 

 

We hit the road and attended conferences across the country.  We spent a year investigating different methods and settled on a system that uses biodegradable ink and complies with the strictest industry standards - a water-based DTG printer.

DTG vs Screenprint

What's the difference between traditional plastisol screenprinting and water-based DTG?   As its name suggests plastisol prints contain plastic and can sag on lighter weight garments.  Water-based DTG prints are much lighter and softer with the inks settling in the fibers of the garment.  The printer is ideally suited for both cotton, blend, and performance fabrics, a new innovation.
