Direct to Garment Printing is one of the newest methods in existence for printing on apparel. This print method uses a specially formatted inkjet printer, which prints soft hand, water based ink, directly into the fabric of a garment. DTG printing uses CMYK ink, which allows the process to reproduce photo images, full colour artwork, and gradients perfectly. Screen-printing has trouble reproducing these types of images and is better suited for designs that use solid colour. With DTG printing we have no design restrictions and this allows us to offer our customers the ability to print any design they want on a shirt, something most printing companies do not offer.
Direct to garment printing is the future of t-shirt printing. This brand-new process allows produces an extremely realistic look that cannot be achieved with screen-printing in many cases. Direct to garment printing is also best suited for small orders of apparel that use complex multi colour artwork. Direct to garment printing uses eco-friendly water based ink that leaves an incredibly soft feel on garments that will never wash off or fade. T-Shirt Elephant has state-of-the-art direct to garment equipment, which ensure our prints standout and will stand the test of time.
