What is DTG or Direct To Garment Printing?
Direct-to-garment, or DTG, is a printing method that sprays the ink onto the garment using inject technology. The inks then soak into the fibers of the garment. It’s sort of like printing on paper, except on clothing.
DTG printers offer extensive color options which means you can print detailed designs and photorealistic images with virtually no color limitations.
DTG printing offers more details printing for fine details and more complex printing as well.
What is Vinyl Printing?
Vinyl printing is when a sheet of polyurethane vinyl is cut to produce a design which is then heat applied to the garments. You cut a design out of a sheet of the vinyl and use a heat press to adhere it to the garment. Think iron on transfer, but with a really big, really, really hot “iron”. The heat press uses a combination of heat and heavy pressure to apply the vinyl to garments.
