WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
The print quality of DTG can rely heavily on the garment you choose. To assist with explaining the difference, here’s some examples of a recommended garment vs a garment we don’t typically recommend:
There’s some notable differences between the shirt we recommend & the shirt we don’t. The shirt we don’t recommend isn’t as smooth or vibrant, & the coverage isn’t as even, almost blotchy looking.
Here’s another example:
In this example you can see the colour almost looks “thin” on the not recommended shirt. You can see small white fibres poking through the print, especially in the stronger colours & the pink looks lighter & patchier.
Now, a word about price. Shirts that work great with DTG tend to be more premium, combed cotton shirts, therefore they are more expensive (roughly £1 - £1.50 more per shirt).
Our goal is always to provide you with the best quality product we can, but we also understand that some clients are on a strict budget, or may be using the shirts as promo items so print quality is not the focus. If you’re perfectly happy with using a cheaper garment, we can totally accommodate that, it’s not an issue. Just be aware that print quality could be better with a higher quality shirt.
