Direct To Garment Printing

Direct to Garment also referred too as DTG by the people in the industry (if you don’t know, now you know) is a process we use for people looking to get cost effective t-shirt printing while ordering low quantities or runs of printed t-shirts. It’s great for printing photos of you, your friends, or your archenemies onto a shirt. Unlike traditional screen printing, the colors are limitless and their are no setup fees.

Our Direct to Garment prices are based on Gildan Ultra Cotton T-shirts. Other brands may have additional fees listed below:

Why is there a price difference between White and Colored Shirts?

First off, colored t-shirts cost more than a white t-shirt because the cotton is dyed. More processing = more money. Secondly we must first print a white base layer on the shirt so the color of the t-shirt doesn’t bleed through the lighter colors on the shirt. This helps get a more consistent color throughout the entire print and helps us deliver a more realistic photo on the t-shirt.
