InstaShirt offers Screen Printing and Direct to Garment Digital Printing

DTG Printing, using the Brother GT-782 and GT-541

In a nutshell, a DTG or Direct to garment printing printer, is a big, glorified, ink-jet printer that prints your design or photo directly onto your shirt, using a very specialized, permanent, pigment-based ink, that will even even stand up to bleach (although we don’t usually recommend beaching anything).

Our advanced print-on-demand technology provides what you want when you want it. No more inventory, no more obsolete stock.

Here are some tips you can use to get the very best results from your graphics

-Graphics submitted for DTG printing should be formatted in RGB, as opposed to CMYK. Graphics submitted in CMYK tend to turn out dull and lighter in color that graphics formatted in RGB.

-Exact color matching is not really possible with DTG printing. The most common complaint we get from customers is that some of the colors are not what they were expecting.  We recommend you do a test print on you own color printer first, and see how it looks. Chances are your final print is going to look more like the test print, than you monitor.  Usually DTG colors look lighter in real life than they do on your computer screen. If you are considering a large order, we would recommend contacting us directly to discuss a sending you a sample print. 


Screen Printing

Screen Printing , Screen-printing, Screenprinting or "Silk Screen" is the age old process of squeezing ink through a stencil. It is an incredibly messy process that takes a lot of time to set up (and clean up after), so we have a 10 piece minimum (no setup fees).  The trick to screen printing is that the more total shirts you order, the cheaper each shirt gets.  

InstaShirt's Screen Printing is executed using top quality inks, and high quality professional equipment. We do our very best to provide you with the very best screen printed products possible, based on the quality of the art you have provided.


  1. Are you screen printing a business or corporate logo?
  2. Do you need the colors to be exactly the same as your logo's colors?
  3. Do you need to colors of your design to be EXACT?


If the answer is yes to any of those questions is "Yes," than you will need to supply us with the correct PANTONE numbers for the job. Remember, due to variation in color of computer monitors, online pantone swatches cannot be trusted. 

Without a Pantone #, we will do our best to match the colors presented (as we see and interpret them), but we do not, and cannot guarantee the accuracy of those colors.
