THE BASICS OF DIRECT TO

Direct to garment printing onto T-Shirts is done by a specially designed and engineered ink jet printer using specially developed inks for this purpose. To initiate the printing process, the art image is sent directly from a computer to the printer via specialized software created soley for this purpose. The machines are designed so that the shirt is positioned lying flat under the printers' printhead. When the printer has received the art image data from the computer, the printhead moves back and forth effectively "painting" the image onto the t-shirt which slowly moves forward to allow the printhead to continue to "paint" the image onto the shirt. The inks used are CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black), so the method is a true process print, commonly called "4 color process". The inks are water based pigmented inks, thus making them environmentally friendly. The image printed on the shirt is extremely soft.

For white shirts, and sometimes for natural or ash color shirts, no white ink is printed since the white in the art image is represented by the shirt showing through the design.
