How does contract DTG printing differ from other contract printing services?

The main differences with contract DTG printing are the amount of time needed to print and the higher cost of inks. Other methods like screen printing require more setup, but once you are ready to print, it only takes seconds to print one design.

With DTG, there’s not much setup. However, since it takes longer to print with DTG, screen printing is more economical with larger orders. If one shirt takes two minutes to run on your DTG machine, 120 shirts will take 240 minutes. It’s essential to know your machines’ capabilities when taking on outside work.
