Are you thinking in getting the T-shirt business but are wondering the DTG Printed T-shirt Lifespan ?
There’s actually no right number for this it all depends on the garment quality and type of ink you used.
Lets suppose you printed a t-shirt using DuPont Artistri ink, and a high quality 100% cotton t-shirt and heat pressed it for 1 minute. It should last about 50 washes or more it still depends on many factors like how you wash, type of detergent you used to wash and water temperature.
But a lot of people probably don’t use a t-shirt more than 50 times, by the 50th time you wash the t-shirt its gonna be in a really bad shape already so DTG printing is still a good choice for high quality images and colorful designs. Unlike Screen printing you don’t need to setup screens and do all that time consuming process, just load t-shirt in the DTG machine and start printing right away.
