Pretreament is a liquid solution used by Direct-to-Garment printers to allow the printing and washability of white ink, or full color images on a variety of colored shirts. The pretreatment acts just like a primer. It allows the white ink printed through the DTG printer to adhere to and sit on top of the shirt. A proper application of pretreatment will help yield better results for any white ink direct to garment printer.
