Maximizing Your DTG Printing Results: A Guide to Avoiding Common Mistakes

Horus New York is committed to providing high-quality DTG (Direct-to-Garment) printing services to our clients. DTG printing is a great option for those who want to print custom designs on their garments quickly and efficiently.

However, there are a few mistakes that people often make when they get DTG printing services. In this blog, we will discuss some common mistakes to avoid when getting DTG printing.

Not Providing High-Quality Images

One of the most common mistakes people make when getting DTG printing is not providing high-quality images. DTG printers directly print images onto garments, so image quality is very important. If the image is low quality or low resolution, the final print will also be low quality. To avoid this mistake, provide a high-resolution image (at least 300 DPI) to your DTG printer.

Not Choosing the Right Garment

Another common mistake is not choosing the right garment for DTG printing services. DTG printing works best on cotton or cotton-blend fabrics. If you try to print on fabrics that are not suitable for DTG printing, the results may not be satisfactory. Make sure you choose a garment that is suitable for DTG printing.

Not Preparing the Garment Properly

DTG printing requires a clean and flat surface to print on. If you do not prepare the garment properly, you may end up with a print that is blurry or distorted. Before you print, make sure the garment is clean, dry, and free of any wrinkles or folds.

Not Checking the Color Matching

DTG printing can sometimes result in color variations between the original image and the final print. To avoid this mistake, make sure you check the color matching before printing. Many DTG printers have software that can help with color matching. You can also request a sample print before placing a large order to ensure the colors match your expectations.

Not Considering the Size and Placement of the Design

When getting DTG services, it is important to consider the size and placement of the design. The size and placement of the design can affect the overall look of the garment. Make sure you select the right size and placement for your design to ensure that it looks great on the garment.

Not Communicating Clearly with the DTG Printer

Effective communication with the DTG printer is essential to getting a great print. Make sure you communicate clearly with the DTG printer about your design, garment, and any other specifications. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to ask.

Not Considering the Cost

DTG printing can be expensive, especially for large orders. Make sure you consider the cost before placing an order. Some DTG printers offer discounts for bulk orders, so it is worth asking about these discounts before placing an order.
