Direct To Garment (DTG)

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.

Tech Specs:

Print Area: Up to 20 x 28"

Max Resolution: Up to 1200 dpi

What can we print on? Cotton, Polyester, Cotton- Polyester Blends, Lycra, Viscose, Silk, Leather, Denim, Linen, Wool and more.

Daily Capacity: 300 t-shirts/day.

Minimum Order: 1

Setup/screen/additional color fee: $0

Typical turnaround time: 1-2 weeks+ depending on current production schedule.

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.
