Direct to Tshirt Printing

 T-shirts using Direct to Garment (DTG) printing, the method of printing cotton-based fabrics (i.e. t-shirts) using a large format inkjet printer, is far superior to screen printing, the process of printing inks through a stencil. DTG is more environmentally friendly than screen printing. DTG uses water-based inks to directly print clothing.

Printing them yourself with heat-applied transfers. In my experience, they’re hard at home with an iron. You would need a much more costly heat press than just designing the shirt online and having someone else print it professionally.

The first thing you want to talk about is if you want a logo, an image slogan, or just an image. Custom t-shirt pricing usually depends on how many colors you come up with. If you just have1-color text, it’s much cheaper to print than a photographic image. So if you choose to add a picture, you’ll want it to be as few colors as possible, unless you’re willing to spend a lot.

When you know what you want the shirt to say, start playing with fonts. Font selection will enhance the t-shirt’s look. You want to choose something easy to read, unless you want people to look at you for a while with a puzzled look on their face. Bolder fonts will print better, particularly on darker tees. A custom text tee matching the graphic will be great. For starters, you might want to select a techno-looking font for a shirt you’ll make about clubbing. Or you might want a professional joke machine font. Selecting font for your concept is very critical.

Once the shirt arrives, you’re ready to show how funny you’re. You can get hooked on making custom t-shirts, as you can be the envy of all your mates showcasing your intellectual prowess on your arm. Wear your template with pride and plan for compliments!

We use a technique called DTG (direct printing). There are a few companies just starting to specialize in this technology, and over the past few years it has progressed at an amazing pace. Without wanting to put too much emphasis on it (and I’m over-simplifying here so apologies to the machine’s builders and inventors), it’s basically cloth ink-jet printing. And it particularly has some great advantages over screen printing.

DTG printers are garment printers that are typically an ink jet printer based on an Epson printer model at the very basic levelFree Web Content and work in the same way as the one on desk printing invoices. A tray contains a plate where the t-shirt is put and passes under the print head similar to how paper travels through a printer.
