Why You Should Pretreat Every 50-50 White T-Shirt in DTG

Learn WHY You Need To Pretreat Every White Shirt

Why You Should Pretreat Every White T-Shirt


Image Armor is excited to be exhibiting at the Long Beach ISS July 20th – 22nd at the Long Beach Convention Center. Stop by in booth #1010 to talk about DTG and see why you really should be pretreating EVERY shirt you print. We will have on hand samples showing why you should pretreat on EVERY style of garment – including white. 

Why You Should Pretreat Every 50-50 White T-Shirt in DTG

Pretreating is the process of “preparing the shirt” to more readily accept the DTG water based inks used in direct to garment printers. Image Armor LIGHT provides a vastly improved surface on white shirts that will change the way you and your customers look at DTG printing. You will be able to see first hand how our proprietary formula improves wash durability and color vibrancy and image clarity on 100% cotton, 50/50 and even 100% polyester shirts.

As you can see in the image to the left, there is a vast difference in the image clarity and colors on this white 50/50 shirt. The Image Armor LIGHT Shirt Pretreatment works great on all CMYK prints and CMYK plus a light highlight white if needed.

Come and join in the DTG Revolution and visit our booth this summer at the Imprinted Sportswear Show in Long Beach. We look forward to seeing you there. 

If you can’t make the show in July you can sign up and receive a free quart sample of Image Armor LIGHT Shirt Formula simply by going here. We know you’ll love the results you see so much we are willing to put our money where our mouth is – which is why we are giving it away for you to try. You can also stop by our booth at the show to pick up your free sample if you have not tried the LIGHT Shirt Formula yet.
