At Xsports Manufacturing, we use two different printing processes for custom apparel: DTG and screen printing. DTG printing utilizes water-based CMYK ink, while screen printing uses plastisol ink. The processes used for each method are completely different and result in different outcomes.
For designs that are highly detailed or photorealistic, DTG printing is often the preferred method. This is because it can more accurately replicate the original digital image compared to screen printing.
While both printing methods yield high-quality results, certain artwork may work better with one or the other. Don’t worry, though – our knowledgeable sales representatives can recommend the best printing method for your specific design to ensure the highest quality outcome for your custom apparel project.
