If you’re looking to add a personal touch to your wardrobe, clothes printing is a great solution. Here are some tips and tricks. Direct-to-garment printing is a process that prints designs on clothing using heat transfer. The design is created on a computer and printed onto a white transfer paper. A plotter follows the digital outline and then cuts out the design. The finished transfer is then placed on a garment and heat-treated to adhere to the fabric.

A high-quality DTG printer will produce crisp and clear designs. It will not create thick layers of extra ink on dark fabrics and may fade over time. While a high-quality DTG printer will produce clear and crisp designs, it is not suitable for home use. It is also not suitable for dark fabrics and the result may not last for long. In addition, DTG printing is not very durable and may fade over time, even after repeated washings.

In the case of commercial garment decoration, plastisol inks are the most common. They produce vibrant colour, clear graphic detail, and have a plastic feel. A water-based ink is also available, which is better for large-scale jobs. Water-based inks are also less expensive than plastisol inks and can be used on both light and dark-coloured garments. Some inks need to be heat-cured to become permanent.
