DTG Printing

DTG is also known as “Direct to garment printing “

Direct To Garment printing is the process of creating full color prints on t-shirts and other garments from a graphic. If you are looking for a full color t-shirt printing but have found it to be cost prohibitive for screen printing, give us a try. No minimums and reasonable pricing on low quantity orders. For larger quantity orders check out our screen printing page here.  If you really want something that pops, go full color! No real limitations or price increases to go from 1 color to many colors on white or light colored t-shirts.  We are located in Middleville, Michigan and we provide call ahead service to customers in the local greater Grand Rapids (Kent county) Caledonia, Middleville, Hastings, & Wayland areas (Kent and Barry County) Don’t have a graphic of your design yet?  Use our online designer to create your custom design.  We recommend that you watch this short video on how to use the designer first but it’s not necessary.  Choose your shirt type, add clipart and text, and place your order.  If you wish to discuss your design prior to ordering, make sure you save your design in the designer by creating an account and saving your design.  This way we can see your design while we are talking about the details.  If you have a design and just want a quote, use the form on contact page and attach the graphic you wish to have printed to receive a custom quote for your project.

Want a photo on your shirt? No problem as we can do that too.  This is not a transfer technology either.  It will hold up much better than heat transfers and will withstand multiple washings. Direct To Garment Printing is printing with fabric inks right on the garment as with screen printing except that the process is a “green” one in that is uses water based inks instead of solvent based products.  This makes the production process safer, plus you don’t have the concern of solvents against your skin.  The process is permanent as with screen printing and will meet industry standards of wash-ability as well.  Great for “grandma shirts” and other family gifts ideas. Contact us today to discuss your project and to receive a personalized quote from us to start making your next event a special and unique one.  Common events we receive orders for a family vacation events, golf events, chartiy events such as walks and runs, employee recognition days, birthdays and other special occasions, event advertising and give aways, and much more.
