Custom Shirts – Direct to Garment Printing

Direct to Garment (DTG) is a printing technology used to create custom t-shirts that stand out. Here’s an in-depth look at how the DTG printing process works:

1. Design Preparation

Your custom design is the heart of the process. Whether you choose from a collection or upload your own artwork, the design needs to be optimized for the DTG printing. This includes:

  • Resolution Check: Ensuring your design is high-resolution for crisp, clear prints.
  • Color Adjustment: Adjusting colors to match the vibrancy and accuracy on the fabric.
  • Alignment: Perfecting the placement and alignment to achieve the desired look.

2. Garment Pre-Treatment

Before we start printing, the selected garment undergoes a pre-treatment process:

  • Solution Application: A special pre-treatment solution is applied to the fabric. This step is crucial as it helps the ink adhere properly and enhances color vibrancy.
  • Drying: The pre-treated garment is dried using heat presses, setting the stage for flawless printing.

3. Precision Printing

The heart of the DTG process is the printing itself:

  • Advanced DTG Printers: State-of-the-art DTG printers are equipped with high-quality, water-based, eco-friendly inks. These printers function like an inkjet printer but are specifically designed for garments.
  • Direct Application: The ink is applied directly to the garment, allowing for highly detailed and vibrant prints. This method supports unlimited colors and intricate designs, capturing every detail perfectly.

4. Ink Curing

Once the design is printed, the garment needs to undergo a curing process:

  • Heat Treatment: The printed garment is placed under high heat to cure the ink. This step ensures that the ink bonds effectively with the fabric, making the design durable and long-lasting.
  • Quality Assurance: After curing, each garment should be inspected to ensure the print quality is up to high standards. The result is a print that is resistant to fading, even after multiple washes.

5. Final Inspection

Before your custom t-shirt is shipped, it undergoes a thorough quality control check:

  • Detail Inspection: Examine the print for any imperfections and ensure the design is as intended.
  • Garment Check: Check the garment itself for any defects to ensure you receive a perfect product.
