Custom Direct-to-Garment Printing

The Hive Printing is a Vancouver based company specializing in Direct-to-Garment printing. Direct-to-garment printing, also known as DTG, is form of digital printing for textiles.

Direct-to-Garment printing uses a special inkjet printer to transfer your image file to your clothing or garments. We convert your artwork into a .png file, and then print your image onto the garment using fabric inks.

Direct-to-garment printing is perfect for single, or small print runs. It also works great for designs that are colourful or contain photos and/or images. We'd love to learn more about your project. Contact us today!

  • Minimal set-up time
    The main advantage of DTG is that there is almost no set-up time.

  • Perfect for small orders

DTG inks are also quite expensive, so while it may be the only option for printing some kinds of artwork, it may not always be the most economical.

Direct-to-Garment printing does have some limitations. We recommend using fabrics with a high cotton content and we do have some size restrictions.
