Digital textile printing, often referred to as direct to garment printing, DTG printing, and digital garment printing is a process of printing on textiles and garments using specialized or modified inkjet technology. Inkjet printing on fabric is also possible with an inkjet printer by using fabric sheets with a removable paper backing. Today major inkjet technology manufacturers can offer specialized products designed for direct printing on textiles, not only for sampling but also for bulk production. Printing onto silk can be done by using an acid ink. Reactive ink is used for cellulose based fibers, such as natural yarn dyed family, cotton and linen. Using inkjet technology in digital textile printing allows for smaller sample quantity in yards, mid-run production and even long-run alternatives to screen printed fabric with no limit in number of colors on silk fabric.
