Direct-to-Garment Printing

Direct-to-Garment Printing

This is a printing process that works best for one-off or small print runs and designs that are highly colourful or contain photos/images. It’s a growing part of our business at Fifth Column.

Direct to Garment (DTG) printing begins with your artwork being converted into a .png file on a computer. After pretreating and heat pressing your garment we print the design straight onto the garment via the printer. The full flourish of your design – the colours and detail – will all be there.

DTG Printing is best for:

One-off T-shirts

Small print runs

Very colourful designs

Images & photographs

Screenprinting by Fifth Column Printers

Screen Printing

We’ve been doing this for four decades now. Each of our state-of-the-art machines can print 600 garments an hour and we’ve got the process down to a fine art. That means colour faithful prints that won’t fade, that are soft to the touch and long-lasting.

Embroidery

You can’t screen print perfectly on every garment, and that’s when embroidery comes into its element. It’s a stunning way to showcase your logo on jackets, hats, bags and workwear – it’s particularly durable and looks and feels premium.

Garment Finishing

After the printing is done, it’s time for the finishing touches to get your garments retail ready: custom labelling, hem tagging, poly bagging and applying stickers all help you put your mark on the product and make it look professional.
