DTG, Direct to Garment Printing

Direct to Garment Printing (DTG)! Unlock the Revolutionary Technique


In the textile printing industry, Printsome stands out thanks to three important aspects: personalised service that revolves around you, our precious customer, High-Quality garments, and fast turnaround.


Direct to garment printing, DTG, is a relatively new process that changed the clothing printing game forever! This printing technique, as it states in its name, prints directly onto the garment’s fabric, meaning that contrary to the other printing techniques, this is the only one that you don’t feel the ink when you touch it.


This technique is ideal for complex designs, such as photos, that include various different colours. In fact, some designs can only be printed with this technique.


We’re known for our T-shirts (there’s one in our logo, after all) but our catalogue offers a wide range of products like sweatshirts, vests and workwear, among others. All of these items have been handpicked by our team to ensure the best quality possible. Ready, set, fire your questions away! We can take it.

File Handing Tips

  • If using pixel based images, make sure the resolution is at least 300 d.p.i.
  • Photographs and badges works best with DTG
  • If using vector graphics, please make sure all text is converted to outlines

What to avoid

  • Images from the internet, they are usually of poor quality and may even be infringing copyright laws.
  • Low resolution files, like 72 d.p.i. Original artwork with hi-res is always better!

DTG printing, or as it is sometimes known digital T-shirt printing, is a relatively new printing technique that requires more technology than the rest but is able to offer far more high-quality in printing since it prints the design directly into the fabric of the personalised T-shirts or jumpers. This printing technique gives T-shirts a more fashionable look than the other printing techniques. However, it is not recommended for bulk T-shirt printing as the complexity of the design required for direct to garment printing makes it expensive. At Printsome, we have a team composed of printing experts that are ready to give useful advice to any of our customers. We are here to make the printing process super easy for you and that’s how we are different. We are an online T-shirt printing agency that will do everything for you. At the moment we receive your quotation, within one hour tops we’ll get back to you by phone or by email to resolve your questions and start helping you. Going back to the technique, DTG printing services might not be the best option for polo shirts, but it is recommended for custom T-shirts as they have a more personal use. The most common technique used for this type of garments is definitely embroidery. Just take a moment to think about how many embroidered polo shirts you have seen in your life and you will realise immediately. Now you might wonder, why is this? It is simply the technique with the best quality-price balance. Going back to DTG. Have you ever wondered how it works? The same way as your office printer, but with fabric instead. Basically, the ink gets injected directly into the material. It works great with garments made out of cotton, but it doesn’t work so well with a porous material such as the one of a polo shirt. As well as on T-shirts, direct to garment printing can also be used on personalised hoodies to give them a more edgy look or even for printed workwear to make your staff really stand out. And what about other properties of this innovative technique? Let’s talk about it. First: Colour inks are injected into the fibres leaving no texture when you touch it. That means that over time it won’t fade easily (washing the garment with cold water is highly recommended) Second: It’s way easier to set up when compared to the other techniques. Third: It’s great for those looking for only one item to be printed. For bulk T-shirt printing it is not worth it because it takes quite a bit more to print. Fourth: no limits when it comes to colouring. Fifth: DTG can make some of the detailed highest quality printing T-shirts. Although we can continue talking about the benefits of this technique, those are the most important. Sounds great, right? But there is always a disadvantage and that’s our next point: due to the cost of the machines, DTG printing UK it is expensive. We also can’t forget that it is a new technology that has been around for barely 10 years and therefore hasn’t had the time to develop as much as the others.
