Direct to Garment

Direct-to-Garment printing, also known as DTG printing,  is a process of printing on textiles and garments using specialized or modified ink jet technology. The three key requirements for a DTG printer are a way to hold the garment in a fixed position, an inkjet print head, and specialty inks (inkjet textile inks) that are applied to the textile directly by the print head and are absorbed by the garment's fibers.

A primary advantage of DTG printing is the lack of set-up costs and instant turnaround time not associated with traditional garment printing methods such as screen printing. Digital printing technologies are non-contact, meaning that media is printed on without hand contact, allowing for a more precise image. This prevents the image distortion that takes place in screen printing.

Equipment: Epson Surecolor F2000

For over three years, Epson dedicated a team of mechanical, chemical, and software engineers to create an all-new imaging technology dedicated for printing directly to garments. This endeavor allowed them to rethink everything and ultimately design a garment printer the way it was meant to be.

Designed using the latest advancements in performance imaging, like the purpose-built Epson PrecisionCore™ TFP® print head, along with the all-new garment ink technology – Epson UltraChrome DG – the SureColor F2000 series will become the new benchmark in high-performance garment imaging.
