Maryland Direct to Garment (DTG) Printing
So what is the difference between direct to Garment (DTG) printing and conventional screen printing? Well, there is plenty of differerences:
is the conventional printing technique that has been used for years. In this printing process a velum (or similar material) template is applied to a screen. printing ink is then passed through the screen onto the garment, and finally ink is cured. Each color must have a separate screen. With screen printing, there are additional cost associated with screens and setup. The screen printing method has limitation in the # of colors possible to print. Screen Printing is more suitable for large runs of the same design with limited color variations.
Direct to garment.....
is a much recent t-shirt printing technique. with Direct to Garment printing, a full array of colors with unique and intricate designs is printed directly to the garment without the use of any screens. The Direct to garment printer prints in a similar version like regular color ink-jet printers do , with the same flexibility and variety of options. Though Direct to garment printing is a comparatively new textile printing technique as compared to screen printing, it’s ability to print directly on the t-shirt or any garment offers a great appeal way beyond what screen printing is capable of. The use of water based non-chemical or toxic inks make it also a favourite for new age printers and fashionistas. The final printed image is also not only crisp, vibrant and colorful, but soft to the touch and in the case of light garments, has no touch at all as the inks soak into the fabric to become one with the threads.
Direct to garment printing is more suitable to printers or t-shirt retailers looking for higher quality images with small orders. It is prevalently use on print on demand services due to is lack of additional fees (screens, setup, etc). It also allow for less inventory, lower production rates on small orders, and customized budgets. .
