What is Direct To Garment (DTG) Printing?
DTG is now the highest quality standard in garment printing. DTG sprays our water based ink directly into the fibers of the garment. There are several advantages to DTG over screen printing. We only use premium water based ink vs Plastosal. You are not limited or charged an extra fee for COLOR. That is right we can print up to 16 million colors! The image will also last much long than screen printing.

Good artwork starts with professional quality graphics software like Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator. We design in Adobe and you will get two free edits with your order. Your artwork must be approved before printing begins.
The quality of the print is determined by the image you start with in your software. By following a few basic guidelines in regards to resolution and background you will find it easy to design or tailor artwork to produce high quality images.
