Direct to Garment Printing (DTG) directly applies the ink onto a garment using an inkjet technology as if you were printing on paper. DTG printing uses water-based inks that get absorbed into the garment fibers, thus making the prints more colorful and detailed than a traditional screen-printing technique.
Even though screen printing is the leading source for promotional apparel in today’s market, a survey was conducted in 2018 by NBM’s Printwear and A&E magazine stating that “64% of the participants currently offer or plan to offer direct to substrate printing, and that 40% of those current users have had an increase in sales their first 12 months of adding DTG printing.”
While printing with DTG, the more consistent the texture of the apparel, the better the ink transfer will appear. Ring-Spun cotton tends to be a tighter weave and will allow the ink to have a better hold on the surface of the garment. Many of today’s top DTG print companies use Just Hoods by AWDis as one of their primary sources for product testing and sampling. With of Just Hoods’ garments having a 100% cotton face and an 80/20 ring-spun cotton composite, the knitted fabrics are what DTG printers dream of!
