1. What can I DTG print onto?

We recommend that you print using DTG onto garments that are either 100% cotton or have cotton print face, specifically designed for DTG, such as our range here.

 

2. Do I need to do anything to the garments before printing?

If you are printing with just CMYK then mostly no. However, if you are printing using white ink or printing onto polyester, then you will need to pre-treat the garment first.

 

3. What equipment is required?

 

4. Can you easily maintain a DTG Printer?

Maintenance, pre-treatment and curing garments are all extremely easy with the best DTG printers on the market.
