Direct To Garment - DTG is a full-colour digital printing technology, similar to the printers we would have at home. The system is based on four inks: cyan, magenta, yellow and black - CMYK colours - which are automatically mixed to reproduce a wide range of colours. We print the design you want to personalise directly on the item with the printer.
One of the biggest advantages of DTG is that there is no limit of colors in your design. If you want to print 100 colors, go for it! DTG also allows you to print pictures and other highly detailed designs on your products. Printing with DTG is also incredibly fast, so it is a great choice for rush orders. Last, but certainly not least, DTG on 100% cotton will be 100% soft and comfortable!!
Although DTG can print a wide variety of colors, it cannot guarantee Pantone colors. Moreover, this technique is usually more expensive than screen printing if you are ordering in bulk. DTG is thus recommended for smaller orders that do not require Pantone matches.
Camaloon offers a vast selection of products that use DTG. Here are some examples:
