DTG printing is the latest innovation in t-shirt printing. It works much like an extremely advanced inkjet printer, printing your design directly onto the garment, allowing for high speed and great quality prints.
Check out our video of the Storm II, the latest generation of DTG printers in action at our Manchester warehouse.
A DTG printer can produce designs of all colours and sizes with a superior quality and detailed finish. It is perfect for small to medium quantities and allows for intricate, complex designs.
The design for printing is uploaded onto computer software, whilst the garment is prepared for printing. It is sprayed with a pre-treatment spray to ensure the ink doesn’t soak into the fabric. If this garment is coloured, a white base layer is applied to ensure the colours of the design remain vibrant and bright. The garment is placed in the printer and the design is printed directly onto the garment. It is then heat pressed or dried to ensure a durable finish.
We use some of the most advanced and state-of-the-art direct-to-garment printers on the market. These machines use Neo-Pigment inks, which are 100% non-hazardous, 100 % toxin-free and are safe for infants and babies. They also enable ink waste reduction thanks to their single ink set, ensuring digital is one step closer to offering a solution to lower the amount of water our industry currently uses.
All our DTG printers print in the CMYK spectrum.
