DIGITAL PRINTING | PRINT ON DEMAND

CUSTOM PRINTED SHIRTS WITH NO MINIMUM ORDER SIZE

Digital printing uses the best technology for printing smaller orders with nearly unlimited color options in a design.  This is a great way for you to get full color prints on as little as one shirt.  Screen printing one shirt would be cost prohibitive to you, and we understand that not everyone needs 24 shirts (our minimum for screen printing).  Digital printing (sometimes called DTG or Print-on-Demand) utilizes a process that is somewhat close to an inkjet printer, but the cool part is it prints directly onto a shirt!

  • The softest, high-quality prints for small quantity orders
  • Light colored shirts or shirts without an under base have a soft print that can barely be felt  
  • Dark colored shirts require an under base white for opacity, giving the print a little more feel
  • Excellent for printing photos or any high detail images/logos onto shirts

WHAT DETERMINES THE PRICE OF MY DIRECT TO GARMENT PRINTED SHIRTS?

The Garment:  We have many choices for garments, but they all have two things in common: they are soft and comfortable to wear.  We simply don't offer uncomfortable scratchy shirts.

How Many Shirts You Order: With digital printing, we can print as little as one shirt.  The price per shirt does go down a bit when ordering multiple shirts, but digital printing is the absolute best process for small quantity orders.

Number of Print Locations: Each location on a shirt still requires us to print a new print.  However, our setup time is far less so the cost for low quantity orders is very manageable.

Date Garments are Needed:  Our typical turnaround time is 7-10 business days.  If you need shirts faster, it's often possible to produce them in a shorter time frame if shirts are available. 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SCREEN PRINTING AND DIGITAL PRINTING (DIRECT-TO-GARMENT)?

Digital Printing is a much newer process in which a state-of-the-art printer puts ink directly onto the shirt.  Because the design is processed and printed digitally, DTG printing allows for a quantity as low as one shirt since there are no screens or time-consuming setup.  The ink used in our DTG printing is water base and produces a soft print.  With digital printing, we can produce as little as one shirt with an unlimited number of colors.  Digital printing is best for customers whose design is highly detailed or requires several ink colors, or those who just don't need a lot of shirts.


Screen Printing has over 20 steps involved to print just one shirt.  If you are ordering 24 or more shirts, most of those steps only have to be performed one time.  This makes screen printing the best choice for larger orders.  Once a screen has a stencil "burned" into it, we then push the ink through the screen with a screen printing squeegee.  After the set up is done, we can produce several shirts per minute.  The more shirts you order, the lower the cost of screen printing for each shirt.
