Advantages of Direct to Garment Printing
Advantages of Direct to Garment Printing
September 30, 2016

Wherever you go, you’ll find people wearing sweatshirts, t-shirts, and other clothing decorated with different types of graphics. It can be screen printing, embroidery, direct to garment printing (also sometimes called digital apparel printing), heat transfers, or dye sublimation. With direct to garment printing (DTG Printing) special textile inks are applied directly onto the fibers of the particular clothing. This technology was first introduced in 1996, and in recent years its resolution has increased so that DTG prints can look far superior to screen printing.

Today this form of printing is used extensively - wherever unique decorated apparel is in demand and where customers refuse to settle on cracked, peeling designs. DTG prints will remain soft and bright. What customers love about this kind of printing is that, unlike with screen printing, you can't feel the design - it literally melts into the fabric.  The cost to set up a DTG printer has also gone down and it has become far more affordable than many traditional printing methods.

Direct to Garment Printing made Accessible and Affordable

Direct to garment printing offers additional advantages over traditional printing. It is far less time consuming than traditional methods, and more eco-friendly The inks used in DTG printing are mostly water-based, pigmented inks which are more environmentally friendly.

Breathtaking color effects, soft, clear and bright textures, Value-Rite has been supplying Direct to Garment printers for a number of years complete with accessories such as pre-treatments and inks.

Mass production is never environmentally friendly.
