Digital Printing on Tees is the ideal choice if you are thinking about making small runs or printing a design full of colours and details, like a photograph.
Printing photo t-shirts can be a challenge, since the pictures have many tones and small details that obviously must be reproduced at a high quality. That’s why we recommend using DTG (Direct to Garment).
One advantage of DTG printing is that on white tees the design is indistinguishable to the touch. Also, it gives a vintage look on your garments, which can be really attractive especially if they are part of your personalised merchandise.
For example, these personalised t-shirts were printed for the Italian singer-songwriter Luca Bassanese:
We must take into account that to custom t-shirts with DTG that is a technique with a medium / high cost, so we do not recommend it for promotional garments. But it offers so many advantages:
- No colour limits: reproduces photos, minute details, shadows and gradients.
- Soft touch printing, especially on white garments.
- Quick turnaround times for small orders.
- High resistance to washing.
- High quality results.
- Minimum order from 10 units.
As always, we make sure to recommend good quality T-shirts for printing, especially when it comes to merchandising for resale. This case was no exception and the t-shirt chosen was the Gildan Ringspun T-shirt in white as the perfect backdrop for this photographic design.
Remember, although DTG it is the best quality available, printing on fabric is never the same as printing onto white paper!
