What is DTG Printing

Direct to garment printing (DTG) is a process of printing on textiles using specialized aqueous ink jet technology. DTG printers typically have a platen designed to hold the garment in a fixed position and the printer inks are jetted or sprayed onto the textile by the print head. Since this is a digital process the print is sharper and has a higher resolution, or DPI, than traditional printing methods such as screen printing. DTG has the ability to print just one single shirt for minimal cost unlike screen printing, there is no long setup or clean-up process.

For printing, the recommended resolution for all images and art files is 300 dpi.  The offset press cannot accurately reproduce resolutions above 300, so it is the industry standard.

Please note: submitting files at a resolution higher than 300dpi does not improve print quality, and beyond a certain point it makes the files too large to process easily.  For this reason, PrintNinja sets a maximum resolution of 400dpi for submitted files.

Your files should always be use color mode CMYK. Anything else may result in color shifts and other unexpected results when the other color modes(Like RGB or Lab) are converted into CMYK. Please do not include any other color modes such as RGB or PMS  as part of  design in your art work.

For best results, the design file should be built in CMYK color mode in the native application.


To achieve a rich black for larger black coverage areas, we recommend the values C30 M20 Y20 K100. A black value of just K100 alone can sometimes appear as a darker grey and may not be as deep/rich compared to adding the supporting C30 M20 Y20 K100. A rich black also helps avoid potential overprint issues.

For smaller black type, we recommend one colour black at K100 to avoid potential registration issues.
