DTG Printing & Pre-Treatment – Sticky Feel

When DTG printing onto dark garments we have to use what is called a pre-treatment. This primes the garment for printing. This ensures a really vibrant durable print (applying this to dark garments is industry standard with DTG printing). If printing onto white garments, pre-treatment is not required.

On really vibrant or complex designs we may place a little more of this down than on more toned down designs; this can lead to a slightly ‘sticky’ feeling to the garment, and a slight outline. This is totally normal and cannot be avoided when DTG printing, no matter where you go.

Pre-treatment will wash out with water, so can easily be removed. Additionally if you specify before making an order, we can ensure minimal pre-treatment is used (although this may lead to less vibrant prints).

Please note, we use some of the most advanced DTG print technology and inks available in Europe, so you can expect the best results possible when printing with A.M. Custom Clothing.

If printing onto white garments, pre-treatment is not required.
