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.

New RTP Apparel Prints Incredibly Well on Epson F2000

New RTP Apparel Prints Incredibly Well on Epson F2000

Epson F2000 Print on RTP Apparel Ready To Print DTG ShirtsAt the 2016 Ft. Worth Imprinted Sportswear Show we had an opportunity to show off the Image Armor technology being used in the new RTP Apparel shirts. These shirts are engineered for DTG printing..

The RTP Apparel stands for Ready To Print. There is absolutely no pretreatment process necessary for these shirts to be DTG ready. Simply heat press for 10-15 seconds to get rid of any moisture in the shirts, load, and print.

We would like to thank Equipment Zone for printing this awesome design on their Epson F2000. It was noted that this design was printed with the Garment Creator standard default settings for white ink. We were told that they would utilize the next bump up in white ink enhanced printing to achieve the same results they got with just the default printer settings (see inset).

We have heard this multiple times from our RTP Apparel field testers. The report has been they have gotten as good or better prints with the RTP Apparel shirts than they could with machine pretreated shirts.

Also, RTP Apparel shirts allow for printing anywhere on the garment. You can print on the front, back, side, sleeve, with no additional preparation necessary. Just load the shirt and print. This allows for more creative and larger prints to be achieved with no staining or discoloration issues that can sometimes happen with “normal” shirts.

The interest in RTP Apparel shirts has been extremely high and we recommend signing up on the RTP Apparel website to “get in line” to be able to purchase these new ready to print shirts. Learn more on the RTP Apparel website.
