Call us for pricing on printing, heat transfers and embroidery.

The DTG Process

Direct to garment printing, also known as DTG printing, is a form of digital printing for t-shirts and garments where a digital image is printed directly onto a textile, creating a vibrant image that is built to last. There are no minimums on our DTG orders. This process is ideal for any size order where you’d like beautiful, vibrant color. Printable items include unisex shirts, women’s shirts, men’s shirts, junior’s shirts, youth shirts, v-neck shirts, long sleeve shirts, moisture wicking shirts, tanks, hoodies, onesies, quarter zip pullovers, tote bags, and many other items. If you have a specific due date, please let us know. For rush orders, an additional fee will apply.

  • PRETREAT: Garment is coated over the print area with a solution to allow the ink to be printed on dark garments. The solution is then cured by heat prior to printing.
    PRINT: Using a white base coat, the color image is applied to our garment.
    CURE: The garment is dried using high heat to seal the printed image.

Things to consider about DTG printing: Direct to Garment pieces should be washed before the first wear and always washed inside out in cold water to keep the design from fading over time. 100% cotton is the best material to use for DTG printing.


There are no set-up or screen charges. Pricing includes our premium house 100% cotton shirts (sizes XS thru XL). Sizes 2XL and up are available for an additional charge.

To expedite your order, we ask that you please supply your artwork to meet these file specs:
  • Accepted formats – AI, EPS, PDF, PSD, TIFF, JPEG and PNG (PNG is our favorite!)
  • RGB color mode (artwork in CMYK may experience a slight shift when converted to RGB)
  • ALL fonts converted to outlines/curves
  • Artwork should be provided at 100% (actual size of output) at 300 dpi (if supplying raster files)
  • For dark garments, all files should have a transparent background. Each colored pixel that is found within the image space is interpreted and converted into ink droplets that are printed on the shirt. On dark colored garments, any white space in the image is also printed; therefore, if your artwork has a large white square around it, it will also appear on the final printed product.

Maximum standard print areas:
Standard Full Front/Back = 10.75 x 12”
Standard Left/Right Chest = 4 x 4″


If you do not have print-ready artwork available, just let us know. Our graphics team can work with your existing files or create a custom design for you.
