How does Direct to Garment work?
Although Direct to Garment inkjet printing hasn't been around for particularly long, it has revolutionised the way in which designs are printed onto textiles and garments.
Direct to Garment printing involves printing a design onto an item such as a t-shirt in the same way that a standard inkjet printer prints a design onto a piece of paper.
The process is a little more complex than printing onto paper. For example, the textile needs to be treated with a liquid prior to printing which ensures the ink will 'stick' to the fibres of the fabric. For dark garments, it is common for a layer of white ink to be printed underneath the design to ensure the final design is vibrant and clear.

- Colour Quality: Direct to Garment printing uses high quality pigments which produce distinct and vibrant colours. Due to the fact that Direct to Garment printers use the standard CMYK formula, the colour palette is virtually limitless.
