Whether you're going to start your own T-shirt business or expand an existing business, direct-to-garment printing can offer plenty of opportunity for growth and profits. T-shirt printing has never been easier, faster, or more economical than with a SummitDTG Direct to Garment Printer. Print t-shirts with less mess, less cost, and less set-up times than traditional screen printing. Print crisp, colorful, vibrant images directly onto garments without the need for special fabrics, coated papers, or other limiting factors.
Imagine this: A customer walks into your shop with a photo of his dog and wants it printed onto a tee shirt. If you have a traditional screen printing press you probably wouldn't even try to quote this job because you must charge enough to allow setting up the screens, plus time to clean and reclaim the screens. Most screen printers charge $25 to $30 per color for the setup fee, so a four color image would cost at least $100 to set up. What if the image has four hundred colors? No problem with a SummitDTG Direct to Garment Printer - whether it's a four color image, or a four million color image, there's still no setup involved, and the print can be completed in a matter of minutes! Photographic prints with superior detail, up to 2880 DPI, can now be printed to t-shirts, other garments and a wide range of substrates. And there's no need to buy expensive software - SummitDTG Direct to Garment Inkjet Printers will print directly from popular graphics programs such as CorelDRAW®, Illustrator®, Photoshop®, Quark® and many others.
The SummitDTG line of dtg printers are the most cost effective way to print short runs or medium runs of full color vibrant prints to t-shirts, polos, sport shirts, mouse pads, towels, bandanas, children's clothing, jeans, shorts, jackets, socks, caps and more. If you can make it lay flat on the platen, you can print on it. For more details about exactly what a SummitDTG Direct to Garment printer can and cannot do, please read the FAQs.

SummitDTG Direct to Garment inkjet printers feature piezo inkjet heads and our specially formulated DTG water based textile inks. In addition, DTG now offers polyester pretreatment that helps DTG inks bond to polyester.
DTG printers are often called t-shirt printers, but this term is a bit misleading, since most dtg printers can print on anything that you can make lay flat on the printer platen - this includes t-shirts, of course, but also blue jeans, socks, curtains, towels, and many other textiles. DTG printers can also be used to print on tiles, wood, plaques, glass, mouse pads, and may other substrates. When printing to any item that will not absorb the ink, a clear sealant coat may be required to prevent the ink from rubbing off.
