Digital printing on dark t-shirts or garments is not quite the same as printing on white or light ones. The direct-to-garment process is similar to screen print in that a white foundation or white under base must be printed first, allowing the design colors to be visible. Color may not look quite as bright when an under base is used, and the feeling of the printed shirt is not as soft. In the process of direct-to-garment printing there is an additional step involved with printing the under base. It’s called “the pre-treat.” Colored or dark garments require the print area to be sprayed or treated, with a non-toxic primer. This primer facilitates the bond between the white ink and the garment or material surface. Depending on the design, a pre-treat can double the amount of time it takes to produce a digital print order. Although the pre-treat solution is non-toxic, it can leave a faint residue on the shirt, and it is strongly recommended that these shirts be washed before wearing.
Digital printing is a newer printing process that allows artwork to be printed directly upon a T-shirt or other fabric much in the same way you would print an image with an ink jet printer. Some of the advantages to digital printing are:
- Faster turn around
- Minimal set up time
- Perfect for smaller print runs
- Every print comes out identical
- Less expensive than screen printing
- Highly customizable
- Unlimited colors
