Join the DTG Revolution with RTP Apparel

Image Armor Partner RTP Apparel Starts a DTG Revolution

Join the DTG Revolution with RTP ApparelThe manufacturer of the DTG industry’s first widely available Ready To Print DTG shirt, RTP Apparel, announced June 29th that they are reducing pricing to help get people to try the pre-pretreated shirts. This DTG Revolution in pricing is only for a limited time and allows the wide spectrum of DTG printers to try out the product that will free them from the fun process of pretreating.

Each tee is priced down to $2.50 a shirt for S-XL and in white or black shirts. The RTP Apparel shirts allow you to print ANYWHERE on the garment without having to pretreat. Front, back, side, even over the sleeves.

“We are especially excited for people to see the difference on the white tees – the vividness and image clarity reveal any other printed medium out there and it can be done on DTG” said Brian Walker, founder of RTP Apparel. “We wanted to celebrate the Fourth of July weekend with something special. This great country had its own revolution over 240 years ago. They had freedom in mind and we want to help start the DTG Revolution. To help people be free from pretreating.”

The RTP Apparel shirts will be available for a limited time in July for only $2.50 per shirt. You can learn more by visit the RTP Apparel website or can order shirts directly through their online store

RTP Apparel Side-by-side comparison

No Pretreatment vs RTP Apparel Garment with Image Armor Technology

We wanted to show you EXACTLY why you want to use the RTP Apparel garments that utilize our Image Armor pretreatment technology. This is especially true for a white T-Shirt. We’ve heard from many DTG’ers the question – “Why pay more, or a premium, for a white T-Shirt when you can purchase these shirts for $1.50 or less”?

Taking a Closer Look

When the same design printed on the same printer with the same exact settings is printed on a “standard” shirt vs the RTP Apparel shirt – the answer is obvious. The color saturation and brightness the Image Armor infused garment is starkly better in comparison to the “standard” t-shirt that many people utilize just because the “standard” shirt is “cheaper”.

The image detail will be increased significantly due to the fact that RTP Apparel shirt holds the ink better and “in place”. This means that your colors will look better (yellows will look more yellow and not “muddied”, blacks will be black, and reds more vibrant) and the lines and edges of color will be much sharper in contrast to the non-DTG T-Shirt.

Another final qualifier is that the T-shirt will look better for longer. RTP Apparel utilizes the Image Armor technology in the shirts. This means most end-customers of the RTP Apparel shirts will experience a better looking print for a longer period of time. The wear and durability of your shirts will help result in happier customers who’ll come back for more.
