Direct to Garment
We are proud to offer the latest high tech garment printing solution to our existing processes. Having recently accquired this latest machine all the way from the USA, this is the newest and most exciting way to imprint garments is DIRECT TO GARMENT DIGITAL PRINTING or DTG. DTG DIGITAL GARMENT PRINTING involves the use of a highly modified inkjet printer with specially formulated garment inks which are heat set with a heat press or tunnel dryer. Unlike screen-printing, DTG output does not require separations, films and screens. Once your artwork is ready on the computer it is output directly onto the garment.
Because of the lack of steps required for DTG, short run orders can be quickly and economically produced in a seemingly infinite number of colors. Production times on a DTG digital garment print are similar to those for a sublimation or thermal transfer, and generally a bit slower than those for traditional screen-printing (once the press is set up and printing). With DTG digital garment printing there is virtually no hand on light and white garments and minimal feel on DARK GARMENTS.
Price example, a full colour A4 image, one postion, single White top £17 for a Black (or other Dark colours) £20.
