DTG stands for Direct to Garment but it can also be referred to as Digital Garment printing, Digital Apparel printing, and Inkjet to Garment printing.
DTG printing is a process of printing graphics onto textiles and garments. For our use, t-shirts. It uses modified inkjet technology to print whatever graphic you want onto the shirt. Think of a regular inkjet printer which has been modified to “accept” garments instead of paper.
The ink is printed directly onto fabric which results in exceptional “hand” (common term in the industry referring to how a garment feels once the image or design has been printed on it), and offers more flexibility than screen-printing in terms of colour variation and turn-around time.
