Why we don't
do dark shirts one at a time.
Our shirt printing process is called "Direct to garment" or DTG.
direct process cannot be applied to dark garments . Dark material
does not accept ink.
about placing a black paper in your ink jet printer and trying to
print on it.
a design on a dark shirt can be done but it requires a special process
similar to silk screening. (There are DTG printers available for dark
colors- see note below)
process for light color shirts is this: Light shirts are basically
a 2 step process. After creating the design in the computer and sending
it to the printer:
The design is printed directly on the material. All colors are applied
at the same time with the same process as your ink jet printer.
The material must be able to absorb ink. Poly does not work. Bamboo
or 50/50 Cotton/Poly works.
After printing, the garment is placed in a heat press to seal the
design. Light shirts are basically a 2 step process.
on dark shirts is a 5 step process
Pre-spray: Each area to be printed must be sprayed separately. (Front,
Back, Sleeve) with a pre-treat fluid.
Cure: Each spray must be cured by drying in a heat press or other
First print: Each area printed is done separately with white ink.
This layer is on top of the garment like silk screening.
Final print: Each area of garment is then printed with any color(s)
on top of the white.
Final cure: Each area of garment is then heat pressed.
that print on dark colors have white ink that is applied on top of
the garment as described above and can do one shirt at a time unlike
silk screening that requires a quantity to be cost effective. The
problem with these printers is the extra steps as noted above and
the extra maintenance required. The white ink is difficult to keep
from drying out and clogging the delivery system. If you have used
"white out" you know how fast it drys. Even though called
DTG, the process for dark shirts is applied "Direct" but
is not "Absorbed".
