The Process of DTG Printing

Step 1 – Pretreat and Cure the Garment

When printing with white ink, apply the proper amount of pretreat depending on the garment preferably with a Brother-recommended pre-treatment machine for optimal results. Then simply cure the pretreat solution with either a heat press or dryer to ensure a flat printing surface.

Step 2 - Prepare the Digital Art

Load your artwork into our new graphics software GTX Graphics Lab Software. GTX Graphics Lab allows you to position the image, add text, distress layers and make other adjustments to your image before sending the file to print using the GTX print driver. Optionally, you can also print directly from your own graphics software.

Step 3 – Printing on the Garment

Dress the platen with your desired garment or substrate and press print.

Step 4 – Cure the Ink on the Garment

Place the printed garment on to the heat press once again or in a forced air dryer to cure the ink. This will ensure the ink is fully cured to the garment and will have the desired washability.
