Direct-to-garment (DTG) printing
This printing method is used for printing on clothing, and the process itself resembles digital printing on paper. Using this technique, pigmented water-based inks are applied to the garment’s surface and are absorbed by the product’s fibers. Typically, the garments are made of cotton or a cotton blend.
This is one of the most popular printing techniques, as it allows to easily produce one-off products at a low cost and can accommodate precise and detailed designs.
This printing method is used for printing on t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, joggers, totes etc.
All-over printing (AOP) or sublimation
The all-over printing (AOP) technique uses high heat and pressure to apply dyes onto the product. The print surface is typically white and can be made of various materials. During the printing process, the dyes are absorbed by the material (or fabric), creating a seamless, smooth finish.
This printing method is used for printing on:
Clothing (leggings, swimwear, masks etc.)
Home decor items
Other printing methods
Paper products, such as posters, greeting cards, and journals, are printed using digital printers that use professional-grade inks.
