   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.

That makes the ink long-lasting, and you’ll never have the unfortunate “peeling” effect of a well-worn t-shirt.
