DTG vs Screen Printing

There are a lot of ways to apply custom artwork to garments and depending on your design and what your vision is for your custom garments, different methods are more or less suited for the task.  Like for example, DTG vs screen printing: how are they similar and how do they differ?  If you are somewhat new to custom printing, you might not even know what they entail in the first place, so let’s start there!

DTG vs Screen Printing

Screen printing is when you use silk screens that have a design on them to apply inks to a garment with a printing press.  Multiple screens are used when multiple colors are involved because each screen gets its own separate color which will culminate in a complete image at the end.  DTG is short for Direct to Garment printing which a type of digital printing.  With DTG, a machine that works like a giant desktop printer applies inks to a garment until the full image is realized.  Since DTG is applied digitally without the use of screens, it’s better suited for more detailed and colorful images on single shirts.  Screen printing is better suited for massive wholesale runs with more simplified artwork because you can set up a screen and produce them assembly-line style.

No one method is better than all the rest because it all depends on what you need!  In the battle of DTG vs screen printing, the winner is whichever method gets you to your goal!  Here at AMBRO Manufacturing we offer all kinds of garment decoration services so you are sure to find customization success, no matter what your project is.  If you would like to learn more about our company and DTG vs screen printing, or if you would like to place an order with us, you can easily contact us by email or by giving us a call at (908) 806-8337.
