You put in the time and research, and finally purchased your first Direct to Garment printer. Now that you know how to run the machine, you’re printing t-shirts left and right, and business is going great. T-shirts are definitely a top seller, but what else are you doing with your machine?

            Direct to Garment printing isn’t just about designing great t-shirts. The industry is relatively new, but constantly changing. The competition is fierce and if you aren’t keeping up with the trends, then your business could be in trouble.


    To make your Direct to Garment FreeJet machine more versatile and produce a

wider variety of products use these platen attachments!
