With the advent of digital technology, capturing information in print these days has become easier more than ever through digital printing. The conventional or traditional methods of cloth printing and offset printing which was a popular choice of large businesses years ago have now been surpassed by digital printing. This is because of the economically viable way of digital printing in producing small runs. This is now the most favoured type of printing by both small and large corporations for their marketing materials. Highlighted below are some of the best brought about by digital printing.

3. Brother GTX
Print like you never have before with the next generation in direct to garment printers, GTX. With an accelerated print speed, seamless design, lower maintenance, and a robust amount of amazing features, GTX takes conventional DTG printing to the next level.
At 4.5’ by 4.25,’ the GTX is a little boxier and immediately conveys an industrial look with its predominately metal exterior. The GTX is a table or benchtop unit, but with a custom stand available. This stand is recommended, as it allows users to take advantage of the open bottom design of the printer for humidification, which is often necessary for consistent operation.
The Benefits of DTG
With Brother’s DTG printer, the GTX, you get all of the traditional benefits of our direct to garment printers plus an expanded offering of additional features and benefits you’ll only find with the GTX.
Step 1 – Pretreat and Cure the Garment
When printing with white ink, apply the proper amount of pretreating 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 Graphics Lab software. 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 in 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.
2. Col-Desi (DTG Digital) M2
ColDesi’s M2 direct to garment printer has several unique features designed to make you more productive, and more profitable including an intelligent RIP software, white ink printing management system and more. BUT, the most important time saver may just be the ability to print 2 shirts with 2 different designs at the same time.
Most DTG printers on the market today, like the ones from Anajet or Brother or Epson, can print fairly quickly. Several even have RIP software applications that have some unique tools. But none has the ability of the M2, to print 2 jobs at the same time. The closest you can come to this money-making feature is the DTG Viper, which with its multiple platen system allows you to print 2 shirts in a ROW. That’s different than the M2, which prints laterally across both shirts at the same time. Not only is this technique faster, but it produces an excellent image as well!
Being the only dual platen printer of this group — meaning there are two platens to load t-shirts instead of just one — the natural thought would be that it has a much larger footprint. At about 4’ x 3,’ it occupies a similar space as the Brother, but with a much larger shadow as it’s nearly a complete rectangle.
A tabletop/benchtop unit as well, the M2 will require proper arrangements. Quieter than the Brother GTX but not to the level of the Epson F2100, this unit can be an option for users that need an extra-large imaging area.
