Direct to Garment (DTG) Printing – An Eco-friendly Printing Alternative

Looking for environmentally friendly custom print apparel?

Well, we’re happy to enlighten you (if you haven’t already heard the scoop) that there is a relatively new technology called Direct to Garment (DTG) printing, which allows custom printing directly onto a flat garment without the drawbacks of screen printing and other environmentally harmful processes. Traditional screen printers and the like often use harmful synthetic plastisol-based inks which are full of harsh chemicals detrimental to both our planet and our health. DTG is a digital printing solution process that offers many practical advantages over traditional alternatives, such as a comparatively larger imprint area with lower ink cost – which means cheaper customized shirts or apparel! And best of all these printers are almost 100% eco-friendly because they eliminate harmful inks by substituting environmentally friendly water-based inks instead.  That means you can create your own sports apparel for your team, or custom tees for your office, church, or any other organization without paying high set-up costs for low volume orders.

With DTG you don’t have to order in bulk to get competitive pricing on your custom-print needs, and you also don’t have to sacrifice quality and durability. Essentially, direct to garment printing allows personalized t-shirts to be produced at a cost effective price for once-off events, or for customer’s who don’t require a large quantity of garments. You can do all this while imposing less harm on the environment… and if you want to go that extra mile for true sustainability, try printing onto organic cotton clothing or other sustainable apparel. All you need to do is send in your high resolution Jpeg image to Green Benefits and our printing services will have your t shirt customized on any suitable garment of your choice!
