We run a Direct to Garment (DTG) printing service within Wild and Kind Studios. We currently print T-shirts, Hoodies, Sweatshirts, Tote Bags Aprons and Tea Towels through this method.
DTG printing is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to create prints onto clothing due to the limited ink used per print and zero water waste. It allows for high detail, multicoloured prints (up to 1200dpi) at no additional cost above one colour designs. It also allows you to print your designs with NO MINIMUM ORDER. On top of that we use plastic-free, water based OTEX inks. A water based ink will age with the garment and fade a little overtime, in a retro band t-shirt way. To get the most life out of your products, make sure you wash them inside out and on a low heat.
We don’t print white ink with the DTG method. To do so would involve us using a PVA based base layer which doesn’t give the best results. To allow us to print items with white ink we have decided to start Screen Printing as well utilising our Riso Printer and using water based inks.
