Direct to garment printing, also called direct digital or digital screen printing, is the result of recent technological innovations that offer many of the benefits of screen printing with improved flexibility. Digital printing in Sacramento, CA, is an excellent way to produce any number of high-quality garments with strong lines and vivid colors.
New Directions Graphic Apparel offers a comprehensive approach to digital printing that includes design and production. Here are just a few things to consider before taking advantage of our comprehensive design and print services:
If you’re planning to invest in a limited run of brightly colored garments, you may want to consider investing in a pretreatment. This will allow your colors to truly shine, and improve the longevity of your custom t-shirts in Sacramento, CA.
- Digital vs. analog:
You may be wondering whether direct to garment printing or traditional silkscreen printing is right for your project. Silkscreen printing is better for larger runs that involve a smaller number of colors, while digital printing is suitable for smaller runs with more vivid colors.
- Printing vs. heat transfer:
It’s important not to confuse direct to garment printing with a heat transfer. Heat transfers apply a design that’s been printed on a rubbery surface on top of the fabric; this creates stiffness and limited breathability. Digital printing, however, prints the image directly into the fabric itself.
