Direct-to-garment (DTG) printing is a digital printing process that allows you to print directly onto garments without the use of screen printing or heat transfer. DTG printers use inkjet technology to spray dye onto the garment, which then bonds to the fabric using heat and pressure.
DTG printing is a relatively new printing process, but it has quickly become popular for a number of reasons. First, DTG printing allows you to print full-color images on garments, which was not possible with traditional screen printing methods. Second, DTG printing is a more cost-effective process than screen printing, especially for small orders. Third, DTG printing is a faster process than screen printing, which can be important for businesses that need to produce garments quickly.
