T-shirt Printing, DTG Or Sublimation Printing?

   When it comes to t-shirt printing, there are many equipment, and the most common devices are DTG printer and sublimation printer. Then, what’s the differences between them?DTG printer

   DTG is pretty much like using a printer to print on fabric. Because it works like a printer, it can support the most detailed design, with as many colors as you want. The printer can only print one garment at a time, which makes it perfect for printing one-off t-shirts.

sublimation printer

   Sublimation printing is the process of printing onto a special sheet of paper, and then transferring that image onto fabric. The ink is heated until it disintegrates into the corresponding fabric. That makes the ink long-lasting, and you’ll never have the unfortunate “peeling” effect of a well-worn t-shirt.

   If you want to print on cotton t-shirt, then we suggest you choose the DTG printer. If you print polyester t-shirt, then you can choose a sublimation printer.

    DTG printer is the inkjet printer which can print on garment directly, it is kindly popular because of it’s easy operation and high quality printing quality. Many people asked me that is it possible to print on the phone case with a DTG printer. Then here is the answer.

DTG printer

   The DTG printer can be used to print on the phone case as long as you want, and not only phone case, it can print on all kinds of materials in theory, and what you need do is install an UV system. But we usually don’t suggest you do this, why?

   DTG printet uses textile ink, which is water-based and non-corrosive. If you want to print on the phone case, cup, frame, you should use UV ink. UV ink has a certain of corrosiveness. Put textile ink and UV ink together can create a chemical reaction and crystallize. The print head will get clogged. The print head is the core component of the DTG printer, is cost at least seven or eight thousand. So the result of doing so is not worth the candle.
