Distinctions between Dye sublimation printing and DTG digital printing

To get a better understanding of the benefits of digital printing, we will take a look at two of the most popular forms used for apparel decoration: direct-to-garment (DTG) printing and dye sublimation (or sublimation, for short). Though similar in some aspects, they are quite different in others.

Dye sublimation uses a normal Epson inkjet printer, outfitted with a special print head, and bulk ink system, to print sublimation inks on to a transfer paper, this transfer is then used in the heat press to "sublimate" the image onto the product. 
DTG printer uses a horizontally moving inkjet print head to apply an image directly onto the surface of a garment, which is mounted on a platen that gradually feeds the garment through the machine directly below the print head.
