Direct-To-Garment (DTG) printing
is the newest of all garment decoration technologies. DTG printers
were developed to fill in the gaps left by the other garment decoration methods. For example, embroidery doesn't allow for photographic detail. Screen printing multiple colors is extremely expensive and requires high minimum order quantities due to the high set-up costs of each image. Heat transfers deliver a thick, rubbery feel to the graphic. Dye sublimation is appropriate only for 100% synthetic fabrics.
With direct-to-garment printing, we can meet consumer expectations of being able to personalize products and receive them quickly. Each image prints digitally (similar to a paper printer), so there is no screen making, no messy clean up, and no color or minimum quantity limitations. Additionally, digital apparel printing meets consumer expectations of being able to personalize products and receive them quickly.
