Which Decorating Service is Best for Your Custom T-Shirt Needs?

Not sure which decorating service to choose for a fun run, corporate or group shirt? Here’s a quick guide to help you:

Direct-to-Garment-T-Shirt-Printing

DIRECT-TO-GARMENT (DTG) PRINTING

Uses an all-digital process to inkjet print onto a garment or merchandise.

Benefits:

  • Printing can be done fast—usually in 24 hours
  • Images can be high resolution and full color
  • Water-based ink is eco-friendly
  • Printing feels soft to the touch

DIRECT-TO-GARMENT (DTG) PRINTING WITH WHITE

Prints a white layer as a “primer” on darker garments, then adds colored inks on top of the primer.

Benefits:

  • Images can be high resolution and full color
  • Works with most garment colors, including dark colors like black and navy blue
  • Works best with 100% cotton products
  • Provides excellent color saturation
