An Early “Fast T Jet” Direct to Garment Printer

Direct To Garment History

Direct to Garment printing is a perfect example of how the computer revolution has affected the printing industry.  The DTG printer uses sophisticated computer aided technology to spray tiny droplets of ink onto garments. 

The technology was the first big advance in printing since Screen printing in the 1700’s.  The technology was first introduced in 2004 at the SGIA show in Minneapolis.  At that time, both Mimaki and U.S. Screen showcased their revolutionary Direct Printing machines.

At the time of launch, the machines could only print on light coloured clothing as the printing machines were not able to use white ink. By the end of 2005, U.S. Screen had introduced the first every DTG printer that could print on dark garments.  It was called the Fast T-Jet printer.

Today’s DTG printers have amazing capabilities and can print multiple t shirts and garments at the same time,  the machines are easy to operate and maintain. 

 

Direct To GArment (DTG) Process

Direct to Garment printing process involves computer aided application (spraying) of aqueous water-based textile inks onto a garment. The ink is absorbed by the garment fibres and will need time to cure.

DTG printing works well with the cotton fibres that are commonly found in both t-shirts and polos.

The ink is sprayed onto the garment through small inkjet nozzles, the spraying pattern and colour is guided by a computer program. The ink is absorbed by the garment fibres and is allowed to dry.

DTG printing works well with the cotton fibres that are commonly found in both t shirts and polos. In many cases a cotton t shirt is pre-treated to allow for the accurate absorption of ink.

Intricate Designs

Direct to Garment advanced inkjet technology can print a broad array of vivid colours and intricate shapes. We recommend that you consider using Direct to Garment printing when detail and colour is important.

DTG printing’s ability to print highly accurate images is due to it’s inherent use of ink jet technology which controls the positioning of the garment and mixing of coloured inks.

Long Lasting, Natural Feel

Many customers like to use Direct to Garment printing as the designs tend to last a long time. The reason behind it’s great durability is the fact that the ink is actually absorbed into the clothing fibers.
In addition to lasting a long time the printed garments also feel natural, the natural feel is due to the ink being absorbed into the clothing. SIlkscreen and Heat Transfer printing feels unnatural due to the ink on top of the clothing material.

Environmentally Friendly

Leading DTG ink manufacturers like Brothers & Epson have developed environmentally safe inks that meet the OEKO-TEX 100 certification, which mean that the entire DTG process (printing & cleaning) is environmentally sound.

The use of environmentally certified inks means that both the print shop workers and the end users are living in a safer, healthy environment.

DISADVANTAGES OF DIRECT TO GARMENT PRINTING

DTG printing needs the ink to be absorbed by the garment. Some modern materials do not work well with DTG.

 Can Not Print on Polyester Shirts

DTG printing needs the fibers of a garment to absorb the ink. Unfortunately, materials such as polyester do not absorb ink that well. We always recommend using cotton for DTG printing.
