DTG - Direct To Garment
DTG stands for Direct-to-Garment, and refers to a method for textile printing. Unlike other textile printing methods, such as heat transfer or dye sublimation, DTG printing process uses specialized ink in order to print directly onto the garment, using a DTG printer.
DTG printers typically have a platen designed to hold the garment in a fixed position, and the printer inks are jetted or sprayed onto the textile by the print head.
What's the Difference Between DTG and Screen Printing?
Screen printing is the more traditional technique that involves pushing the ink onto the t-shirt fabric through a stencil, while direct to garment is a newer method that uses a printer to apply the ink to the shirt.
What's the Difference between DTG or heat transfer?
While one of DTG printing's main strengths over vinyl is its ease to print on-demand, heat printing is solid colors. With a print/cut system and a heat press, takes a little longer. DTG you can print full color, small on-demand orders in less time.
