Direct to garment printing (DTG) is a process of printing on textiles using specialised ink jet technology. DTG printers hold the garment in a fixed position, and use speciality inks that are applied to the textile directly by the print head and are absorbed by the garment's fibres; these features prevent the distortion seen with some other textile printing techniques.

Unlike other printing techniques that apply ink or vinyl on top of the material, DTG injects colour pigments into the fibres. For this reason, the feel of the final print is very soft to the touch. Because of its potential with colour mixing, DTG is usually reserved for artwork that it’s considered too complex for other printing techniques. These printers can recreate gradients, colours and small details that screen printing can only dream of.

Unlike screen printing, DTG is easier to set up because it requires fewer steps than the other techniques. No limits when it comes to colouring as you can print any design that your heart desires thanks to the power to reproduce the full-colour spectrum with no limitation on the number of tones you can select on a single job. Intricate designs are welcome because it is able to reproduce intricate details, DTG can make some of the highest quality Garments out there.
