In the past, it wasn’t practical to get just a few personalized shirts. For example, if you had a family reunion coming up, and you needed different designs for different branches of the family, silk screening would be too expensive. Setup charges and minimum order sizes mean that small runs or unique shirts are impractical. You could have gone with iron-on transfers, but we all know how poorly those hold up…

Finally, there is way to personalize a shirt without breaking the bank or ending up with a low quality product. Direct-to-Garment printing (or DTG printing) is the solution to low volume custom shirt designs. Now it’s easy to make those family reunion shirts.

DTG printing makes all of this possible and more.
