Do you know what is DTG printing? This article will tell you.
Do you often see people wearing T-shirts with oversized logos on the street? Yes, it’s a popular style nowadays. So if you have your own clothing brannd, you should have this style of T-shirts in your shop. Do you know this technique of the logo printing? Now, Let us tell you, it is DTG Printing.
What is DTG Printing?
DTG is Direct-to-garment printing. It 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:
1. Stronger bond between garment fibers and the pigmented inks.
2. Lays down loose fibers to provide for a smoother substrate.
3. Chemically reacts with the inks to promote drying and curing.
Since this is a digital process the print is sharper and has a higher resolution, or DPI, than traditional printing methods such as screen printing. However, unlike screen printing, there is no long setup or clean-up process, and DTG has the ability to print just one single shirt for minimal cost.
Essentially, DTG printing is a process of printing graphics onto textiles and garments—and most most notably for us, T-shirt. It uses modified inkjet technology to print whatever graphic you want onto the shirt.
