Direct-to-Garment (DTG)


Direct to Garment (DTG) printing is a modern and advanced method of printing custom designs onto apparel. This printing method utilizes specialized inkjet technology to print high-quality and photorealistic designs directly onto the fabric of the garment. Unlike traditional screen printing, DTG printing does not require the use of stencils or screens, making it a more efficient and cost-effective option for small-batch orders and one-off designs.

One of the main benefits of using DTG printing is the ability to create highly-detailed and intricate designs with a full range of colors. This method is ideal for printing photographic images, complex graphics, and intricate designs with fine details.

DTG printing also offers a softer and more natural feel to the finished print, resulting in a comfortable and wearable custom apparel.DTG printing is also a more environmentally-friendly option compared to traditional screen printing, as it uses water-based and eco-friendly inks. This means that it is safer for the environment and for those who handle the printed garments.

Another advantage of DTG printing is the ability to print on-demand and in small quantities, which is ideal for those who require a limited number of custom apparel pieces. This eliminates the need for costly set-up fees and minimum order quantities that are required with traditional screen printing.

Overall, DTG printing offers a wide range of benefits, including high-quality and photorealistic prints, vibrant colors, soft and natural feel, eco-friendly and on-demand printing options, and no minimum order quantities. At French Press Custom, we use the latest DTG printing technology to provide our customers with the highest-quality custom apparel that meets their specific needs and requirements.

What kind of images are best for digital printing t-shirts?

Digital printing on t-shirts is a great way to create high-quality and detailed custom designs, but choosing the right images is key to achieving the best results. The most important factor to consider when selecting images for digital printing is their resolution. High-resolution images are recommended, with a minimum resolution of 300 DPI (dots per inch), as lower resolution images may appear pixelated and blurry when printed.In addition to resolution, images with high contrast and bright colors tend to produce the best results, as they allow for a greater range of colors and shades to be printed onto the garment. Vector-based images are also ideal for digital printing, as they can be scaled to any size without losing quality. It's important to note that images with fine details and intricate designs may not translate well onto the fabric, so simple and bold designs are often the most effective. Overall, selecting the right images is essential to achieving the best quality prints on your custom t-shirts.
