On Demand Direct to Garment Tee

The buzzword these days is on demand printed tees. On demand tees is a new term to promote direct to garment printing. (DTG printing)
DTG printing is a completely different process from regular silk screen printing. It is different because DTG does not use screens in the process.
The whole process of not using traditional screening means quicker set up time. It also means no dangerous chemicals will be used in the process. Generally screen print inks contain formaldehyde and solvents with carcinogenic compounds. The day is coming when we will see ads on late night television reading “did you work in a screen printing shop and do you have a breathing problem? Call 1-800-screen ink for help.”
Screen printing inks are just not healthy, the chemicals stink, and they are messy and dangerous.02092017_191154_6393851900
Digital to Garment printing is so much cleaner. There is no mess, the inks are environmentally friendly and there is no ugly smell.
