Direct To Garment (DTG)
This form of Digital printing is a relatively new technology that emerged in the 90s. It became commercially available in 2005 but has only recently become a viable alternative to traditional production methods, but is still only offered by a handful of t-shirt printers. As the name implies, direct to garment uses ink to print directly onto the fabric or item of your choice. It goes straight into the fibers of the fabric, meaning you don’t feel the design or ink when you touch it.
The main advantage of DTG is that it’s easy to print, and has no set-up time.
Heat Transfer / Print & Cut
There are two primary methods utilized for heat transfers. The first involves using a heat press to transfer your custom vinyl cut out designs onto the shirt.
The second uses specialized ink to print the design onto transfer paper, which is then placed on the shirt and heat pressed to the fabric.
Embroidery refers to clothing that has a pattern or logo stitched into its fabric.
The main thing to remember is that embroidery is not printing. So it requires an entirely different approach to creating a successful design.
Gradients, drop shadows, distressed textures and shading aren’t possible, and you can only use solid colours and shapes in your designs.
This method of printing transfers a design onto a material or fabric using ink and heat.
It is commonly used for ceramic, plastic and other hard-surface products. This method can also be used for fabric, in particular polyester fabrics. The effects are permanent and less prone to fading, as the ink is embedded in the fabric or substrate rather than simply laying on top like a normal print.
This is the process of putting a layer of ink over a screen to print a design. A special screen has to be made for each design (and each color within the design), meaning this method is ideal for bulk orders, but not feasible for single prints or short runs.
We don’t offer this method for regular Print-on-Demand, however we do suggest looking into it for high-volume stores or designs that sell regularly.
