The set up time is minimal, making it ideal for sampling, print on demand and small print runs. We tend to use this printing method for quantities below 25.
We might also suggest DTG for larger print runs if the design has lots of colours, has highly detailed or shaded areas or is to be printed onto a textured fabric or over a pocket or seam.
Not all DTG is equal - our machines give great quality prints. Both DTG and screen should last pretty much as long as the shirt itself.
We refined the process to get as much detail as possible and to avoid the shiny look that some prints have, and wanted it to look as close to screen printing as possible. You’d be hard pressed to tell which prints are which.
Benefits of DTG:
· Finer achieveable detail compared to screenprinting (depending on the artwork and garment)
· Strengths in gradient/colour changes as well as the ability to utilise the garment colour itself as part of the printed design
· Less set up time in most circumstances
