How to Pre-Treat Garments for Direct to Garment Printing

When it comes to Direct to Garment printing, pre-treating your garment is a must. Pre-treating mats the shirt fibers together and gives a base for the print to stand up on. For dark garments, it also chemically sets the white under base so you can print color on top of it. In the video below, Charlie uses the Epson SureColor F2100 to show best practices for pre-treating items for Direct to Garment (DTG) printing. 

Which Pre-Treatment To Use 

At Ryonet, we carry Epson SureColor F2000 & F2100 Pre-Treatment Liquid. This pre-treatment liquid is used to pre-treat garments before printing with the Epson SureColor F2000 & F2100 Direct-To-Garment Printer.

Mixed 1-to-1 with distilled water yields 40 liters of fluid. The pre-treatment fluid can be applied by rolling, airless sprayer, or pre-treatment machine. Pre-treatment application to a garment is required prior to use of UltraChrome DG White Ink.
