Recently we acquired a Direct to Garment T-Shirt printer here at Vinyl Disorder. This piece of technology is absolutely amazing. Different from Silk Screen printing, the DTG (direct to garment) printer actually dyes the fabric using a special water based ink.
There are a few advantages to this process, and to our knowledge,only one disadvantage. The design that’s printed on-or into the shirt will NEVER crack or peel. You can dry them at high heat with the rest of your cottons and non-delicates, and they will fade at about the same rate as your fabric. This means no more worrying about hang-drying your favorite shirts and sweatshirts / hoody!
The biggest advantage is the amount of detail you can get, and the beautiful vibrant colors you can attain.
The one con, is that the garment or piece of apparel has to be at least fifty-percent cotton.
We are so very excited to see where this printer takes us, and what it can achieve for our customers and fans!
