About direct-to-garment printing (DTG)

Digital direct-to-garment printing is simply the process of printing designs direclty onto textiles. We use a digital printer, which allows us to offer small batch printing. There are no set up charges and no minimum orders, you can order what you need.

We can offer a full color range for all custom DTG tea towel designs with a maximum print area of  24” x 16”. The cost of the print is based on the ink used. This means that a full-color, maximum print area design will cost more than text or line drawings. Generally the cost will fall between $8.50 - $12.00 CAD, which is about $6.50 - $9.00 USD.

We accept PNG, JPG/JPEG, TIFF, PDF or vector files, sized to print, at 300 dpi but prefer 300 dpi PNG files with a transparent background. 

Turnaround time depends on the order volume but is generally two weeks. 

      We have 2 tea towel sizes:

      Regular: 26 X 19”, maximum print area 24 X 16 inches.

      Small: 23 X 19”, maximum print area 20 X 16 inches.

      Direct to Garment printing offers high quality prints.

      1. DTG printing will capture every fine detail, even the ones you overlook. It's really important to make sure your file is clean before submitting it.
      2. Because we print on fabric, some fine details may be lost in the weave of the fabric. That said, we will always work with you to point out possible issue.
      3. Need help with your design? 15 minutes of editing is included in the quote. If more time is needed, artwork time is $20 CAD for every quarter hour (15 mins).
      4. Order one DTG sample tea towel, with your artwork for a flat rate of $40.00 CAD, which includes the shipping. Inquire for multiple custom DTG sample prints.

      We do not print edge-to-edge! This is because our tea towels are pre-sewn and we cannot print on the seam.
