Forget about screens, films and spot colours! DTG – Direct to Garment digital printing is the best way to print T-shirts with complicated designs, just like today’s example:
Although traditional screen-printing is still the best printing option for simple logos and few colour designs, DTG digital printing allows for the reproduction of shading and different tones like those you can see in these images:
We asked our graphic designer for a bit of advice on personalising T-shirts using DTG digital printing:
- Size matters! It is essential that the image be at least 300dpi and in an appropriately sized document, with, if possible, a transparent background.
- Choose a T-shirt of medium-high quality, with a weight of 165gr/m2 or more. We do not recommend very thin T-shirts.
When we follow this advice, the results speak for themselves! The chosen T-shirt for this design is a premium quality model by the Roly brand, with a weight of 180gr/m2.
This incredible design was created for the metal band Rise to Fall, currently on tour – don’t miss it!
