Direct to Garment

Untitled-1

Direct to Garment, or DTG printing, is a process by which a digital image is printed directly onto your apparel using cutting edge printing technology and inks. This process allows us to print any quantity order with highly detailed full color designs at an affordable price. With our expert team of direct to garment printers, any design is possible . We ensure outstanding accuracy, exceptional consistency, phenomenal print output, and affordable rates with every order.

Some of Our Work

Get Inspired!

Step 1

A customer submits a design. We take that design, clean it up, and figure out the best way to do the DTG onto their custom polo shirts other apparel.

Step 2

If you’re placing a new order for five or more pieces, we’ll send you a digital copy of this updated work (a proof, for short) and ask that you approve it before printing begins. If you’re placing a re-order of any quantity or a new order for 4 pieces or fewer, we won’t send a proof unless the design is especially complex, or you request a proof during checkout or by emailing info@customshirtsomaha.com.

Step 3

We send the design off to our DTG team, who quickly and carefully hoops and sews the logo onto the customer’s products.

Step 4

Each individual piece goes through a quality assurance process and every piece is checked, and then re-checked, to ensure complete and total accuracy.

Step 5

We ship the order right to the customer’s door, but not before we provide them with a UPS tracking number and guaranteed delivery date.

Step 6

The customer receives their beautiful DTGn goods, falls in love with them, shows them off to everyone they know, and posts nice things about us on Yelp, Facebook, Twitter and Google… Or just shouts it from their rooftop.

File Types for Direct to Garment

There are two types of images: raster and vector. Raster images use pixels. The higher number of pixels an image contains, the better resolution it will have; better quality prints. Pixels have a direct effect on the scaling capabilities of an image. The more pixels an image contains, the larger it can be scaled without becoming boxy, or “pixelated.”

Vector images, however, use mathematical calculations between two different points to create geometrical shapes. The process itself uses lines instead of pixels, and because of that, they are infinitely scalable. No matter how large you scale a vector image, it will not lose its quality. When you view a photo on a computer screen, it usually requires a fairly low PPI (Pixels Per Inch) count – around 72, generally. For digital viewing, that’s fine. But when it comes to printing, both on t-shirts and paper, the higher the PPI count, the better. Ideally, we request customers submit photos at 300 PPI. If that’s not possible, no worries! Our design team is always happy to help. Whether submitting a vector or raster image, here are some of the most commonly accepted file formats:

  • AI
  • EPS
  • JPEG
  • TIFF
  • PDF
  • PNG
  • PSD
  • PCT
