I guess the best way to determine the quality of DTG printing is to contact a company and order one. Or if you are looking to contract some printing ask for a sample. The DTG print technology eliminates the screen burning and set-ups. It is used mainly for the 100% cotton fabrics and the colors are bright, not so bright on the blends. Keep in mind that it is only as good a print as one that would be run on any other inkjet printer at up to 720 dpi, taking into account for the texture of the fabric. The DTG printing will never replace screen printing for specialty work like puff and metalics but IMO the process color (cmyk) screen printing industry is washed up. In my area you can't get process color in less than about 300 per order anyway. The DTG printing is ideal for one off and short run jobs. The white ink with DTG is more difficult to accomplish but with the right file and technician operating the machine, it is a thing of beauty.
