We now offer DTG – Direct to Garment printing at Compound.
The results are in, and our customers are loving it! We can literally print anything directly onto a t-shirt or other approved apparel, similar to how you would on a printer at home. Our fancy RI 1000 prints directly on the apparel.
We find it to be a perfect compliment to our screen printing services, as some jobs are simply a perfect fit for DTG printing.
DTG printing is ideal for those wanting more color, higher detail, more customization and quicker turnaround times than screen printing. The other great feature is our one shirt minimum!
Unlike Iron On transfers of the past that crack, peel and fade over time, DTG printing lasts for a long time and holds up great, similar to screen printing.
Some things to consider: White Shirts print really soft, as no pretreat is required. This makes for an extremely soft hand print, the same goes for our ECONOMICAL “vintage print” on a light colored t-shirt.
Dark shirts, or shirts with white ink, will require a pretreat, which is an additional step, and adds a few bucks to your t-shirt.
The pretreat is harmless and will wash out in the laundry, with no additional steps.
You are invited to our tiny store front and showroom to check out examples of our DTG printing. We stock black and white tees for kids, (2t – YL, Men and Women, S – 3XL) in popular and stylish brands.
