Direct-to-garment (DTG) printing is a relatively new process in the printing industry, but it produces good results for complex designs. This method eliminates the need for thick layers of ink, and gives clothes a soft feel. This method requires basic skills and the right equipment. The process works in much the same way as a paper printer: the printer inserts the paper, applies ink, and prints the final result.

The process is a combination of hand and machine operation. First, the cloth is laid out on a printing table and pinned on a back gray. The design is then transferred to the cloth using a silk or nylon screen. The screen is made up of a fabric or silk gauze stretched over a wooden frame. Usually, the design is a photographic image, but hand painting is also a possibility. With either method, the pattern must be precisely fitting for the clothes to be printed.

Embroidery is another option for printing on clothing. This technique uses thread and can provide a higher degree of detail. It’s also an effective way to get a company logo on uniforms. Embroidered garments also last longer, and are suitable for use on workwear. They do not fade when washed, and are an excellent option for frequently-used clothing.

Direct-to-garment (DTG) printing is another popular option. This method uses four or six colors to transfer images directly to a garment. Unlike other screen printing methods, DTG printing can be done with less than one hour of time. And, as DTG printing is more affordable than ever, it’s gaining more popularity.
