DIY DTG Marketing

DIY DTG Marketing

Use these grassroots methods to entice new customers.

The demand for low-volume, custom-printed T-shirts has completely revolutionized the garment decoration industry. There have been significant improvements in the technology dedicated specifically to direct-to-garment (DTG) printing.
Because of the industry’s recent advancements in reliability and quality, it’s hard to question the viability of DTG. The demand for reliable, one-off printing capability is so strong, the question is no longer whether you should invest in DTG; it’s how to compete and ensure the success of your investment.
To market your DTG business you do not need a huge budget. Easily acquired industry relationships, a website, basic knowledge of SEO and analytics, strategic social media and creative prospecting can be just as effective as big-time marketing budgets.

Direct-to-Garment Printing Tips

Direct-to-Garment Printing Tips

Use this advice for successful digital printing on light- and dark-colored garments.

How can I avoid separations overlapping on a T-shirt print?

How can I avoid separations overlapping on a T-shirt print?

The first thing I would check on the job is the screen tension. Screen tension has much to say about influencing the registration of images. Typically, low tension is an underestimated culprit of many things. However, the opposite can also apply. If one screen is high tension and the other ones are low, registration can also be out of sync.
