Q: What is DTG Printing?
A: Direct to Garment printing is similar to inkjet printing. A printer head deposits ink directly onto the material, thereby creating the programmed image. The technology was revolutionized by the arrival of the Epson SureColor F2000 which brought a new breed of ink and hardware to the market.
Images printed with the Epson Surecolor feature longetivity and elasticity that its competitors are still struggling to match.
Dtg inks are non toxic and water based. Despite that, the ink is chemically formulated to bond with the cotton of a shirt, meaning that it won’t simply wash off.
Q: What size can you print?
A: Maximum 38x48cm
Q: What T-shirts do you print on?
A: We print using the 100% cotton t-shirts from select suppliers. We have found they are the best quality currently available in South Africa for our purposes.
Q: Can you print on t-shirts I provide?
A: No, we only print on our own shirts
Q: Art? Photographs?
A: You will need to supply the art you would like printed. Please ensure that it is of a resolution of at least 1500 pixels. Images with no backgrounds work best. PNG or TIFF format is suitable.
Printing photographs is more costly on black than white shirts. Send in photographs so we can quote you! The requirements for photographs are JPG with a minimum resolution of at least 1500 pixels on its smallest side.
Q: Can you print on sleeves or on the back of a shirt?
A: We can print on the back of shirts as well as the front, but not sleeves.
