print the magic

Custom direct to film overview

Digital printing is a modern and highly versatile printing method that relies on digital technology to transfer images and designs directly onto apparel. Unlike traditional methods such as screen printing or offset printing, digital printing does not require physical plates or screens. Instead, it uses digital files to directly control the printing process. This method is known for its ability to produce high-resolution, intricate, and full-color prints with exceptional detail and clarity. It is well-suited for small to medium print runs, as it offers cost-effective solutions without the need for extensive setup or the use of multiple colors. 

Digital printing has flipped the printing industry upside down by combining speed, flexibility, and quality. It empowers any business or individual to print on a garment one piece at a time.
