French Press Custom provides affordable direct-to-garment (DTG) or digital apparel printing to all of Los Angeles and Orange County, CA. Direct to Garment or digital apparel printing better known as DTG is a new method of apparel printing where a printer directly applies ink onto any type of fabric, clothing or apparel. The Direct-to-Garment (DTG) method involves a highly specialized printer that prints the ink directly onto any garment with your desired design. Direct-to-Garment (DTG) printing uses specialty inks, which are absorbed by the fibers of the garment. DTG printing is ideal for full-color print jobs that incorporate colors throughout your entire garment. To put things in simpler terms DTG works like a printer for clothes and it can support the most detailed designs with as many colors as you want.
Direct to Garment Printing, also known as DTG Printing or Digital Apparel Printing is a process of printing on textiles, t-shirts, and other garments using specialized or modified inkjet technology. DTG printers hold the garment in a fixed position, and use specialty inks that are applied to the garment directly by the print head and are absorbed by the garment's fibers; these features prevent the distortion seen with some other textile printing techniques. Digital DTG Printing has come a long way in the past few years and can now print on black garments, cotton blends, and last countless washes. Our DTG Printers use specialty environmentally friendly inks that print the ink directly onto a fabric that we pre-treat in house. These inks are absorbed by the fibers of the garment. DTG Printers are extremely precise in terms of color and photograph quality. With Digital Printing, customers are able to achieve unlimited colors and detail which is harder to achieve using traditional silkscreen processes.
