How to print your own custom tshirt

“I just need my custom t shirts printed!”


What is direct-to-garment printing and how does it work? Direct-to-garment, or DTG, is a printing method that sprays the ink onto the garment. The ink then soaks into the fibers of the garment. It’s like printing on paper, but on clothing. Now the fun part for you…. sit back, put your feet up and relax!! You are in good hands with us and we will guide you through the process.


Step 1:

Every order receives a free professional design review from our team of graphic artists and digital printing experts. We work diligently with you to help you get to your finished product. To start, we ask for the highest resolution image you currently have. The higher the image resolution, the better!


Step 2:

Our designers are happy to work with any image you provide, even if it takes a bit of polishing, however higher resolution images will lower the setup cost. We have mastered the art of transforming designs and ideas into masterpieces. For businesses, check with your web developer or marketing team to provide you with any raw logo image files.


Step 3:

If you’re placing a new order for five or more pieces, we’ll send you a digital copy of your updated work (a proof, for short) and ask for your approval before the printing process begins. If you’re placing a re-order of any quantity or a new order for 4 pieces or fewer, we won’t send a proof unless the design is especially complex, or you request a proof during checkout.


Step 4:

When it comes to printing, pixels and file format matter. Pixels are the smallest measurable point in a photo, and together, hundreds of thousands of them (sometimes millions) combine together to make the image you see. Think of mosaic artwork; The greater number of pieces within a canvas, the more detailed and apparent the image will look.

There are also vectorized images which are preferred. They will not distort by adjusting the size, because instead of pixels, they rendered by shapes.

Your ideas come Alive!!!

One great advantage of direct to garment printing is the simplicity to print one-offs. There is almost no setup time involved. Once you place your order and agree on proof and quantity … ITS STRAIGHT TO WORK!!!

Common Questions:


How quickly can you produce digitally printed t-shirts?

Some orders can be printed and shipped in as little as 24 hours, but the standard custom order is 7 to 10 business days.

Need your order filled faster? No problem! We can accommodate most deadlines, even if it means burning the midnight oil to make it happen.


Can I order digital printing on black garments?

Yes! While many companies only offer DTG services on lighter t-shirt colors, Freedom Expressions can accommodate any order, light or dark, large or small.


What kinds of images are best for digital printing t-shirts?

Many factors affect an image’s digital printability. A basic rule of thumb is the higher the resolution, the better for rasterized images (jpg., png., tif., jpeg., psd., etc.). Vectorized images are preferred (ai., eps., pdf., etc.). With vectorized images, we can adjust the image to the size suitable for the garment you desire. Our machines are the best in the business and produce the highest quality prints available, but those prints are only as good as the photos upon which they’re based.
