What is the Process of DTG Printing?
DTG printing generally involves a very easy and extraordinary process. The first thing to any Direct to Garment Printing is to have a design in a software or program. We can also accept designs from a customer. For example: if our client is using a nicely designed logo, we will be more than happy to control ink settings, image placements and other print options for the graphics. Once the graphic is ripped and the ideal settings for the design are selected, we will proceed with the print options, and the same is sent to our printer.
The next step is to load the garments onto the printer. We will preview your image on the console, and if satisfied, the print will be processed. The printer will then print the graphics directly onto the garment.
Custom 101 prints designers also take extra care for the dark colored garments before the printing so that the white ink under-base actually adheres to the garment, allowing the colors to be unique instead of being lost in the dark color of the garment.
Once the graphic printing is completed, the garment is removed from the printer and is placed on the heat press for 1-2 minutes. Heat will cure the ink to the t-shirt.
