WHAT IS DTG PRINTING?
DTG is an acronym that stands for direct to garment. Direct to garment printing is a digital process that allows us to digitally print directly onto a t-shirt. With DTG Printing, all you need is a printer and a higher resolution file and you can print 1 shirt just as easily as 50 t-shirts.
It is also of note that Giant Robo Printing is the only print shop in Berks County to offer DTG Printing services, so we aim to provide a local yet professional experience that acts as the “one stop shop” for printing services. At Giant Robo Printing, we consider ourselves a full-service shop in part due to our ability to utilize DTG printing. With DTG printing, there is no limit to the number of colors you can print and we are able to print low (or no) minimum orders.
Direct To Garment Printing Services FAQ
Vector graphics are preferred, but we can work around the quality of your design and alter it to fit the order. The reason vector graphics are commonly used for printing is because vector graphics can be infinitely resized without losing any sharpness or color quality, which is great for projects that need high quality images. DTG printing is a digital process so all we need is a good high resolution art file that we can send to the printer and boom, we can print the shirt. Common file types for vector graphics include .ai (illustrator), .eps (encapsulated postscript), and .svg (scalable vector graphics). A high resolution PNG (portable network graphics) with a transparent background is preferred, and we can always work around the art for a fee.
