What is Direct to Garment Printing also known as DTG
DIRECT TO GARMENT PRINTING (DTG)
Dtg printing is a new technology that applies the ink to a garment just like a printer that is printing on paper. The DTG places the ink directly onto garment then the inks are absorbed by the fibers of the garment.

WHAT ABOUT THE QUALITY OF DIRECT TO GARMENT PRINTS?
Even though DTG is a newer technology it is comparable to other high quality prints such as Screen-print. With DTG it prints directly into the fabric of your garments. What it comes down to is the quantity of prints you would like and the details of the prints.
WHAT IS OUR OPINION ON THE BEST QUALITY PRINT PROCESS.
Screen-printing is the oldest and most reliable form of print. It takes a lot more to get set up, but if you enjoy the print process its a fun challenge. DTG follows as a close second because of its capability to bind with fibers of the garment. If you wash your garment inside out and dry on medium heat, the quality of your prints will last as long as a screen-printed garment. Digital printing takes place without hand contact; this allows for a more precise print.
