Custom T-Shirt and Garment Printing
DTG – Direct To Garment Printing:
T-Shirts, Cushions, Aprons, Hoodies and Bags:
The addition of a DTG printer to our range means we are now able to offer printing direct onto garments, be it a stock item or one you bring us to print on. The magic of printing direct to garment is, “no minimum quantity”! As the printing process is almost identical to photo printing, it is possible to print just one item without excessive set-up or manufacturing costs. It gets better, it allows for one or 16 million colours at the same price per garment.

To print on a black T-shirt requires a pre-treatment and white ink under-layer. A white or light fabric allows the garment Colour to be used as the base colour, thereby replacing the need for white ink. When a colour is printed on a dark garment without a white under-layer, the ink simply disappears against the background. This is where the Pre-treatment and white ink play their part. The Pre-treatment is a thin layer we apply before printing the white under-layer, it ensures the special white ink remains on the surface of the garment and assist in curing. The white under-layer is printed as the first stage to a full colour print, it is followed by the colour printing. When an ma has a white area, or light colours, the
Who supplies the product?
You are most welcome to supply your own garment or textile product for us to print on. We will continue to stock an increasing range of products over the next few months. If garments are purchased from our existing stock, we are liable and will ensure you receive the final product you ordered. Although we will take the greatest care with every assignment, we cannot be held liable for the final results on garments or products supplied.
What products can you print on?
The products themselves could vary from the obvious T-shirts, Polo Necks, long sleeves and hoodies to pillow cases, cushions, vests, lens cleaning cloths, sashes, bibs, aprons, serviettes… if you have something you want printed or branded, let us know more about it. I think I will try printing on some Denim when I get a chance…
What materials can you print on?
Almost any material high in cotton, no less that a 50% blend. Ideally a smooth surface, like a T-Shirt, this will ensure high resolution printing. It must also be able to endure a temperature of 180 degrees celsius as this is the temperature it is cured at in our press shortly after printing (for about 90seconds)… so plastics, neoprenes and similar polymers are not going to end well.
How large can you print?
Our largest print area is 400x500mm. We also have a small 100x100mm platen ideal for sleeves or even handkerchiefs or serviettes. Images can be printed as small as you like, image quality is determined by the surface texture of the material, the smoother the material, the higher the resolution.
How long does it take?
DTG printing is exceptionally fast. We plan to start on a 48 hour turn around. Faster delivery will certainly be possible. This will however be determined by stock availability. Light or white textiles that require no pre-treatment could be ready within a matter of an hour. Dark garments will need a pre-treatment followed by a white ink under-lay before colour ink can be added, this may require more than a couple of hours. If it is an item we stock, it would also be determined by our stock levels on the day. Please check with a salesperson first.
How much does it cost?
We will offer set prices for stock items. For custom items, we will refer to our software to calculate the ink usage from the artwork supplied, this will need to take place on a quote per project basis. Items on dark textile will cost more relative to white or light textiles as a pre-treatment and large amounts of white ink may be needed.
We stock one style of apron in which sells for R77.50 (image to follow soon).
