Direct-to-Garment Printing is a new technology that allows us to print full color, photo quality images directly onto your t-shirt with near insta-turnaround. 


NO MINIMUMS!DTG custom t-shirt printer

Direct-to-Garment (DTG) printing is a great new means for printing a business logo, a photo, a graphic image or a line of copy on t-shirts and sweat shirts for business or personal applications.


Our machines, the Brother GT-782 and GT-541, are considered among the best in the industry.
The GT-541 is ideal for light and white colored shirts the print will never crack or peel, and although it will fade a little bit over time, it does so gently and organically with the natural aging of the shirt.  It does not print white ink like our GT-782.
The best way to visualize the way the GT-541 ink behaves on darker colors is to think about Crayola markers on colored construction paper.  All the markers work great on the lighter color paper but not the darker paper. Our GT-541 ink works the same way.
The Brother GT-782 is the latest and greatest in dark shirt DTG printing. It has the ability to print a white "under-base" or foundation for the colored ink to sit on, which allows for bright, vibrant colors, even on black shirts.  We have found that this process does not work as well on some of our thinner shirts, such as the "Value Tee,"or 50/50 blended tees.

Best for small businesses, local organizations, birthdays or anything!


DTG is ideal for small businesses or organizations with a desire to build morale or promote their products and services. Contractors (electricians, plumbers, landscapers), professionals (medical and health care practices, law firms and others), sports teams, church or charity groups and retailers can make the most of our services. So can individuals who want wonderful novelty t-shirts and sweatshirts for birthdays, anniversaries, reunions or any occasion. DTG can turn a custom designed tee-shirt into a moving billboard - or a memory that lasts forever.



Far more efficient than silk screening for all these reasons:


For smaller production runs, DTG offers tremendous advantages over silk screen printing. That's because silk screening involves long set-up times and complicated art preparation. Also, with silk screening you cannot reproduce a photograph on a garment. And most important, silk screening can be prohibitively expensive.


DTG is different from silk screening because it brings a world of ease, efficiency and affordability to those who want to print limited quantities of custom t-shirt designs. There's no minimum order. You can print 100 novelty tee-shirts, or 10, or even just one!

DTG printing is changing the way people can custom design t-shirts.


DTG printing is done on an ink jet printer that prints right onto your t-shirts and sweat shirts. The set-up time is very fast and you can print your favorite photos, designs or words right onto the garment. The cost is surprisingly affordable because the process is so quick and easy. Make your own t-shirt right here, right now. Just go to our Online T-Shirt Design Studio. Just keep these points in mind regarding the DTG process:


For best results, we suggest that you choose t-shirts made from 100% cotton.


You can put graphics anywhere on the t-shirt's 12"x14" area. In general, however, it's usually better to place your message higher.
