If you haven’t already heard, there is a shortage in the paper supply chain.  Not only does this impact your clients, but it will also impact your revenue.  Having multiple ways to help your current clients, and help new clients, will greatly reduce your redundancy by not being 100% reliant on one source of revenue.


Direct to Garment is a great way to diversify your printshop.  By offering custom apparel for your client’s needs, you can now expand what you have to offer.  With DTG, you have limitless possibilities on what it is possible to print on.  So, your client needs some shirts for a special event coming up?  Stop outsourcing these orders.  Start insourcing.  Start offering your clients multiple ways to fulfill their orders.  Customers don’t like to shop at three different places to get everything accomplished when they can just stop at one that offers everything they need.


Millcraft’s DTG Solution is here to help.  With a DTG printer in your printshop, you are now able to satisfy your client’s needs in-house.  Below are Millcraft’s DTG Experts Top 10 Reasons why Printshops should get into DTG Printing:

#1 Unlike most other printing markets, the on-demand garment print segment is booming!

#2 Adding DTG to your existing business is simple to do:

-Concentric Diversification: Using your existing customer base, staff skills, business expertise to bring a new service into the print shop.

#3 The ROI is fast and furious!

-10X your investment in the first year!

#4 “Green” water-based inks and other chemicals provide for a clean and safe printing process

#5 Scalability is extremely easy when compared to other garment decorating processes (i.e., Screen Printing)

#6 Print on items other than just T-Shirts.

-Tote-bags, Pillowcases, Rally towels, Denim, Canvas, and Cork are just a few items outside of garments that DTG can print on.

#7 No MOQ required. Customers’ buying habits have changed and they are purchasing smaller quantities of product across the board. DTG handles small order runs with ease.
