Direct-to-Garment

Direct to garment printing, also known as DTG printing, is a form of digital printing for apparel and tee shirts where a digital image is printed directly onto fabric, creating a vibrant image that is built to last.

There are two mechanisms involved with DTG printing. One is a transport mechanism for the clothing and the other is inkjet textile links, which are absorbed by the fibers and applied straight to the clothing.

DTG printing is extremely cost and time effective while still being able to create beautiful product designs. Visual Illusions Printing utilizies direct to garment printing to create affordable, attractive, and durable products for our consumers in a timely manner with state-of-the-art technology.
