Direct to garment printing offers many advantages to not only the customer, but also is much more manageable when printing, thanks to its digital nature. Digital files allow us to print intricate, fine detail prints which are much more accurate than traditional screen printing methods. With built-in multi-color registration and the ability to previews our prints, getting the clear color and image you want on your apparel has never been easier thanks to DTG printing.
While direct to garment has advantages in some cases, there are also times when you may receive better results when choosing our silkscreen screen printing services. Silkscreen is preferred for printing with darker inks, since DTG ink is thin and doesn’t show up very well on dark fabric. However, we do offer under-basing for DTG, which allows us to print on darker garments. Silkscreen printing is also ideal for simpler designs that need to be mass-produced. While you can print multiple colors with silk screen printing, it will tend to be more expensive than complex, multi-colored DTG printed apparel. This is because we have to setup and align the screens for each color.
Our DTG prints hold up fairly well and stay looking good after multiple washes, and you can avoid cracking by properly washing, drying, and ironing your apparel, and by avoiding bleach and dry cleaning. Any apparels should hold up for about 50 washes or more.

We also offer underbasing for our DTG services, which allow us to print more accurate colors on darker colored garments. This is done by applying a white layer of ink under the printed area to allow it to be much more visible on the final product. This is great for anyone looking for higher detailed and vibrant prints on a darker image.
