Screen Printing is a process also known as Silk Screen which setup into different prep stages before you're ready to print onto a t-shirt, poster, box or any other custom product that can be screen printed.

DIRECT TO GARMENT (DTG)
Direct To Garment also known as DTG is a much simple an easy process that allows artwork to be printed directly onto a t shirt. With the process being simplified it also has more advantages over screen printing. When printing with our DTG method it allows us to print full color images onto shirts with just a few clicks. For full color images in screen printing we would need to break the image into a 4-color process using CYMK to print the image. The 4-color process is costly and not worth doing when printing only one or two shirts.
The durability of Direct to Garment (DTG) is also great but there is one thing to keep in mind after the first wash the color will settle and be a little dull from how it originally looked. This is because the colors are still sitting on top of the shirt and when washed the remain colors that are setting are washed away leaving you with the final print. So, if you looking for Direct to Garment Shirts near me or Screen Printing Shirts Near Me you now have insider on the difference between Screen Printing and Direct to Garment (DTG).
