direct to garment
When you order a t-shirt or hoodie from Hellwood Outfitters, we process the order before passing on the details to one of our print partners.
All of our preferred printers use a method called Direct To Garment Printing (DTG), a digital printing process that offers many advantages over standard screen printing.
DTG printing applies specialized textile inks directly into the fibres of the clothing that is being printed.
Because of the digital nature of the printing process it means that our designs don’t need to be limited to a small selection of colours or simple designs. DTG is a full colour CMYK printing process which allows for a palette of millions of colours and complex designs.
When properly cared for, DTG printed T-Shirts and Hoodies will remain as soft and bright as when first printed and unlike some other printing methods, our designs won’t crack or peel.
This handy little video perfectly illustrates the DTG print method.
