How digital t-shirt printing works

Digital DTG t-shirt printing is a method that applies inks directly on to fabric with a high level of precision using computer software. Scheduling orders, calibrating machinery and mixing inks used to be done manually. Our digital printing technology does it automatically which means you can get a photo-quality design printed at speed for fantastic value. If you’re looking to order small quantities under 50 items and your design has lots of colour it’s definitely your best print option.

World class quality

The quality of digital prints onto clothing are miles ahead of conventional prints like t-shirt transfers. Your design is applied directly on to fabric with laser-fine precision. The ink ‘sits in’ the material and displays colour and gradients in incredible detail. If you really want your design to leap out of the shirt use a white or grey tee.

Fast fulfilment from our automated factory

Our printers are web-connected so when you place an order online our software automatically tells the printers your artwork configurations and settings. Print on demand has loads of advantages.

“There are no setup fees or minimum order quantities. You can literally order just one custom printed product at a time.”

This is really handy if you want a DTG sample. It means you can order a single tester product to check out the quality, feel and fit of your print before going ahead and placing your order – with no hidden charges.

Once your tee is printed it’s packed and shipped out by our warehouse team. Our digital printing is fast and efficient so we have an excellent turnover time. You can even order online for same-day printing and next working day delivery.

“If you need an order for a specific deadline, let us know and we’ll make sure your order arrives in plenty of time.”

We’re based on the South Coast so even without next-day delivery, your DTG prints will be with you in a few days max.

Digital t-shirt printing unlocks loads of different design possibilities, like gradients, and a full CMYK colour spectrum. You can start designing now for free using the artwork library and text tool in our T-shirt Studio. Or if you already have a design prepared, you can upload it in a few seconds and drop into position. Digital printing captures super-fine details so is ideal for photo prints. You can upload your photos straight from your device in whatever file type is convenient, although for best results we recommend high-res PNGs pics with a transparent background. Designing a t-shirt is the most creative part of the digital printing process so get stuck in and have some fun.
