Direct-to-Garment Printing

A couple of years ago I got my Wizr t-shirt printed in Dubai. I had it done on a direct-to-garment (DTG) printer which is basically an inkjet printer that prints directly onto fabric. Compared to the usual heat transfer prints, DTG prints look a lot better, as if the t-shirt was store-bought.

Back then I had asked if there were similar services in Kuwait and I got a few recommendations. Sadly most of them seem to have shut down last year due to the pandemic. But, I did eventually find one place that was still active called Inkservice. They’re a print shop with various locations around Kuwait but their DTG service is located at their Shuhada Co-op branch. I had an old Rambo advert printed on one of my white t-shirts and it came out perfect so I’m going back to print some more things.

The cost is 4.5KD if you provide a t-shirt and 6.5KD if they provide one. If you’re looking for a place to print on t-shirts check these guys out. It takes a few minutes to print so you can wait there till it’s done. They’re on instagram @inkservice and here is their location on Google Maps.

Cool idea! Imagine a whole T-shirt collection with old advertisements, I would have to dig through my Al Arabi collection and other old magazines I have and start printing.

Interesting.. Do you give them the image on a flash drive or something or do they need a hardcopy?

i haven’t had the chance to try my new tshirt but my wizr tshirt still looks pretty much the same with barely any fading and no leaking

Awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚
Yesterday, I found out that AlHafiz in Murqab (near Roundabout Mosque) had a DTP.. but forgot to ask their price per print.
