Direct to Garment
DIRECT TO GARMENT : DETAILS
For many California Print Co. customers, Direct-To-Garment (DTG) printing is a great way to get full color prints on just a few shirts. Screen printing smaller orders with multiple colors has previously been cost-prohibitive so we offer DTG printing as an alternative – the process works much like an traditional inkjet computer printer but for apparel! Instead of a paper tray and toner cartridges, there’s a sliding t-shirt table and special garment ink cartridges – your designs are printed directly onto the garment. DTG is efficient and affordable to those who want to print limited quantities of custom t-shirt designs. There’s low minimums, so you can print 100’s of custom t-shirts or just a few!
DIRECT TO GARMENT : QUALITY AND BENEFITS
For smaller production runs, DTG offers tremendous advantages over silk screen printing. DTG provides full color, photo quality images without the extensive set-up or complicated art preparation. Once printed, the garment is heat pressed to cure the ink and ensure washability. As with most inkjets, DTG printing allows for a spectrum of colors to be produced with vibrant, photo quality details. The possibilities are endless! Added bonus: there’s no color separation needed, you can print high resolution artwork, original artwork and even photos! Plus, environmentally friendly water-based inks are used so your shirt feels soft to the touch.
DIRECT TO GARMENT : PRICE QUOTE AND ORDERING
Similar to other imprint methods there are a few details and variables which determine price. The DTG process on dark garments costs more than if printed on a white garment. The total image size, how many imprint locations and how many total pieces your having printed for your project will also determine price. Use our quote request to find out how much your project will cost. Artwork files accepted: PSD (.psd),PDF (.pdf),JPEG (.jpg),TIFF (.tiff) at imprint size. Files should be created in 300 DPI from the start and not added into a 300 DPI Canvas.
