HOW DTG PRINTING WORKS

Direct-to-garment printing (DTG) is a process of printing on textiles using specialized aqueous ink jet technology. DTG printers typically have a platen designed to hold the garment in a fixed position, and the printer inks are jetted or sprayed onto the textile by the print head. DTG typically requires that the garment be pre-treated with a PTM or Pre-treatment machine allowing for the following:

  • Stronger bond between garment fibers and the pigmented ink
  • Lays down loose fibers to provide for a smoother substrat
  • Chemically reacts with the inks to promote drying and curing

 

Unlike screen printing, the DTG printing does not require the screen setup which is a long process. Cleaning frames and other adjustments increase the cost of screen printing when printing small orders. That makes the DTG very competitive with respect to the Screen Printing.

In addition, the technical requirements for digital processing of the images are more flexible. You can print any image or photograph without going through a vector conversion or a screen-printing polychrome.

recommended fabric-cotton

It should be noted that the DTG is special for use on cotton garments thanks to the fact that their inks are water-based. As Direct to Garment printing is environmentally friendly, it is recommended to print it on 100% cotton garments.  However, you can use garments with blends, up to 50% cotton minimum, since if the percentage is lower the colors will lose vitality. It is also important to use fabrics of good quality with closed fabrics. These are ideal to obtain the best results in terms of definition and vividness of the colors.

Another aspect in favor of this technique is the great durability of the prints, lasting up to 80 washes without losing vividness in the colors. 

ADVANTAGES of dtg printing:

  • Soft-touch printing.
  • There are no configuration costs.
  • Digital textile printing can be used on light or dark garments.
  • Great durability of the prints, lasting up to 80 washes without losing vividness in the colors
  • Allows to print designs with blurring or transparencies, achieving spectacular results

disADVANTAGE:

  • It is not possible to use Pantones, although the designs can be digitalized, and very similar colors can be obtained.
  • The price is medium-high for bulk orders due to the cost of ink. It is a technique focused on designers or complicated designs.
  • Long delivery times for large runs. 
  • It does not allow stamping complicated garments, such as hats, raincoats, polar, umbrellas, etc.
