Digital Printing AKA Direct To Garment Printing

Digital printing is a newer technology for printing on apparel and a great alternative to screen printing.  Different than traditional screen printing, digital printing uses CMYK/4 color process water based inks to achieve a full array of colors.  The detail is remarkable and the number of colors achievable is near limitless. Torches Print Shop has access to one of the best digital printers in the industry providing you professional and state of the art equipment to be used.

What is Digital Printing (aka Direct-to-Garment/DTG)? 

Digital printing is 4-color process printing on apparel using modified inkjet printer technology specifically designed for fabric.   Digital printing uses a computer to process the artwork in CMYK and then prints the image directly onto the garment.  The environmentally friendly ink is sprayed on the top layer of the fabric creating incredible detail with vivid colors. With the patented technology of pre-treating inside the machine, the Kornit printer offers a cost-effective solution for printing designs with incredible detail and tons of colors.   

Many people ask when digital printing may be best.  Here are some tips: 

  • Photorealistic designs or actual photos work great.  The detail is amazing! 
  • Jpegs as long as they are at least 300 dpi at print size can work just fine. 
  • Ring-spun cotton fabrics work best. 
  • Full color designs in small quantities are now more affordable. 
  • Works great when the design has a lot of detail. 
  • Printed presentation samples are more cost effective and can make a great impression.
