So, what's digital tshirt printing all about?

Digital tshirt printing or Direct-To-Garment (DTG) printing is a relative newcomer to the tshirt printing game, centering around a wide-format inkjet printer that prints directly onto the surface of a tshirt or garment. Printers like this have existed since the mid-2000s, but the technology has come a long way since then. The efficiency of these DTG printers is what makes one-off tshirt printing possible, so you can order just one tshirt and still have a retail-quality result at a surprisingly low cost.

What makes digital printing at Tshirt Plus unique?

Our DTG printers have the widest color gamut in the market, which means unmatched color availability and accuracy for artwork and designs. They also use eco-friendly, biodegradable inks that adhere to strict industry standards for tshirt printing.

How long do digital tshirt prints last?

With the right care (it’s not rocket science), the tshirt printing will last for many years to come and could even outlive the shirt. To lock this in, we recommend washing your shirt inside-out with cold water and then air-drying on a coat hanger instead of opting for a lazy dryer.

How do digital tshirt prints feel?

Because our DTG printers use water-based inks for tshirt printing, our digital tshirt prints have a retail quality touch. On dark garments, the prints sit on top of the fabric so you can feel them but on white garments, the ink almost goes into the fabric and makes the print feel soft.

What types of orders suit digital tshirt printing?

Digital tshirt printing is perfect for smaller orders (1-19 units) and photographic images. Our DTG printers replicate colors and gradients with exceptional accuracy for photographic reproductions. If you’re ordering a large order with a design that doesn’t have many colors, we recommend you opt for a screen-printed solution.
