The Pretreatment Dance – What is the Right Amount of DTG Pretreatment?

The Pretreatment Dance - an article about using the right amount of DTG pretreatment - Brian Walker

A very often asked question in Direct To Garment printing is “How much pretreatment do I need to apply to the shirt?”. For the new DTG printer (and those who’ve printed for a while) this is a very good question. Those asking the question are often frustrated by my response – “It Depends”. 

To help understand how much pretreatment that needs to be applied, we wrote an article for Printwear Magazine in December of 2018. It should be a required read for anyone starting out in DTG printing.
