Print-on-Demand Apparel Printing Techniques
Because Gooten’s Custom Apparel assortment consists of a wide variety of print-on-demand clothing, we employ adequate printing techniques to achieve the best print quality results for our merchants and end-customers.
- Direct-to-Garment (DTG) is a method where the printer prints the ink directly onto the garment with specialty inks, which fibers absorb. Learn what to expect from direct-to-garment printing in our guide.
- Direct-to-Film (DTF) is an emerging transfer technology that prints designs onto polyethylene terephthalate (PET) film that is transferred onto the garment.
- It also provides access to the decoration of poly products, unlocking an enormous and previously under-represented product segment in the on-demand space. DTF is the predominant printing technology for several substrates.
Dye-Sublimation or Dye-Sub Printing:
Materials Best Suited for Print-on-Demand Clothing
Unlike polycotton blends, a 100% cotton garment is, as the term suggests, made purely from cotton fibers. Such garment pieces are durable, ultra-soft, and breathable. They absorb and retain moisture and are heat-resistant. However, a slight disadvantage is elasticity. Because the material is plant-based, the fabric is less stretchy, which may be vital to consumers when determining the proper fit of the model.
Polycotton blends are popular in print-on-demand as all fleece is usually a combination of both materials. While one of the main benefits of cotton is its breathability, adding polyester offers increased durability, abrasion resistance, and wrinkle recovery properties. The blend retains cotton’s comfort and absorbency while benefiting from polyester’s strength. DTG print quality and permanence of the design decreases as poly content increases.
