How long will the DTG prints last?

DTG inks adhere best to natural fibres such as cotton – with this in mind it’s best to use 100% cotton garments for the best wash fastness. When using 100% cotton T-shirts there’s no reason that the print shouldn’t last just as long as the garment.

Using 100% cotton garments however isn’t always feasible, many Hoodies, Sweatshirts and jog pants are made using┬áCotton Polyester blends which is important to keep the fit of the garment after washing, as well as T-shirts which use polyester for heather colours. We find that as long as the cotton content is high (approximately 70% – 80%) then there should be no real noticeable difference in wash ability.
