Why Choose Digital Garment Printing
  • Garment printing has never been faster, easier, or more economical.
  • Digital printing eliminates the screen making process as well as messy screen printing inks and clean up. Therefore there is less mess, less cost, and less set-up times than traditional screen printing.
  • Digital printing is the best option for short runs and one-of-a-kind prints on garments. Each T-shirt can have its own high resolution design printed in a single pass.
  • There are endless applications and possibilities: T-shirts, sports shirts, golf shirts, jeans, dresses, blouses, aprons, baby items, head gear, towels, pillow cases, embroidered garment fill-in, and more. You are only limited by your own imagination.
  • It offers great profit potential. The per-print cost of ink is subject to variables like image size and the percent of coverage. However, the average per-print cost of a full-size image on white and light garments is between $0.50 cents and $1.00 dollar. The average per-print cost on black and dark garments is between $3.00 and $4.00. The entire process is fast and easy to learn. A new hire can learn to run the system in 15 minutes.
