Why Choose Custom Digital T-Shirt Printing?

1 TO 500 PRINTING. Need only 1 shirt? Custom digital T-shirt printing can get it done for you! While Direct-to-Garment printing can also be a great choice for volume printing, its unique edge over other types of decorating techniques — including screen printing — is its single-printing and small-batch capability, giving you the most flexibility in the number of shirts you can order. For the best value, be sure to ask us about volume discounts.

FULL-COLOR OPTION. Unlike screen printing which applies one color on a shirt at a time, DTG printing can easily print a rainbow of colors. This makes digital T-shirt printing a more affordable full-color option than screen printing.

24-HOUR TURNAROUND. Last-minute shirts? Digital printing can come to your rescue! The true power of Direct-to-Garment printing lies in its quick turnaround capability for in-stock apparel, giving you peace-of-mind that you’ll have your shirt in time for that special event.

HIGH-RESOLUTION PRINTING. Need to print your parent’s wedding photo on a shirt as a gift for their 50th wedding anniversary? DTG printing is your best bet for the job! One of digital t-shirt printing’s edge over screen printing is its capability to print in high detail.

DESIGN THAT LASTS. Because DTG prints directly on the garment, ink binds to the fiber, allowing the design to last longer as it becomes part of the fabric.

CLEAN & GREEN. Ink Tees is committed to being green. One of the cleanest ways to decorate custom shirts, direct-to-garment printing uses an environmentally friendly and non-toxic water-based ink. 

The DTG process involves printing directly onto apparel with ink that’s specially formulated for the fabric. The steps involved in the process are as follows:

Direct to Garment FAQ

In our experience, Direct to Garment is the best option in several circumstances. Smaller order sizes make it more cost-effective, while DTG excels when printing designs with many colors or complex images.

Unfortunately, DTG printing can only be used with materials that have flat surfaces.
