Any type of garment & object - DTG & DTS Printing is the way to go, and here at Patrick Prints, we offer this service for any amount of unit order. The following is information for both DTG & DTS Printing;
Direct-to-garment printing (DTG) is a process of printing on textiles using specialized aqueous ink jet technology. DTG printers typically have a platen designed to hold the garment in a fixed position, and the printer inks are jetted or sprayed onto the textile by the print head. DTG typically requires that the garment be pre-treated with a PTM or Pre-treatment machine allowing for the following:
- Stronger bond between garment fibers and the pigmented inks
- Lays down loose fibers to provide for a smoother substrate
- Chemically reacts with the inks to promote drying and curing
Since this is a digital process the print is sharper and has a higher resolution, or DPI, than traditional printing methods such as screen printing. However, unlike screen printing, there is no long setup or clean-up process, and DTG has the ability to print just one single shirt for minimal cost.
Direct-to-substrate (DTS) printing is a process that applies images directly to the substrate surface.
In printing, a substrate is the base material that the image will be printed on such a plastic film, glass, paper, or other textile products as in canvas printing. Before the advent of substrate printing, the desired effect was achieved by printing labels or vinyl decals that were then applied to a substrate.
