DTG Printed Clothing Supplier UK
Direct to Garment (DTG) printing makes it possible to print t-shirts with unlimited colours and designs. There's no setup charge, no minimum order quantity and the artwork requirements are easy peasy.
The alternative to DTG, t-shirt screen printing, has setup costs associated with setting up screens, mixing inks and preparing artwork for print. Consequently it is most economical in bulk volumes for designs with only one or two colours. DTG t-shirt printing is much more accessible for lower volumes and those unused to vector artwork conversion. You can send us a picture and we’ll print it on just one t-shirt. We won't charge a setup cost and we'll print it the same day. You can use our handy design tool to create your own t-shirt now, no skill required.
DTG in a sentence
Due to the slightly higher cost of DTG t-shirt printing technology, not least the ink, it is most economical for short runs of custom designs with lots of colours and variations.
If you have a design which has few colours - for example, a company logo - and are looking to order 50 or more it may be more economical to talk to us about screen printed t-shirts.
DTG look, feel and artwork
DTG printing allows gradients, unlimited colours and fine details. It's possible to print a photo on any t-shirt.
DTG printers are technical, expensive and require special ink - but there's no setup charge. They're most economical for small runs or complex art.
DTG prints sit 'in' the fabric not on it - they feel very high quality and are the finest way to decorate a t-shirt.
.PNG files (sRGBA, save with transparency in photoshop) gets the best results.

DTG printing has different washcare performance compared to screen printing. Whilst screen prints will still be vibrant after 20 years, DTG prints can fade a little after only a few washes. Expect a worn, washed-look from your DTG prints after a few washes. If vibrant, block colour over a long lifetime is important to you, we recommend screen printing.
