T-Shirt Printing (Direct-to-Garment Printer)

When I was in Dubai a couple of weekends ago I got a Wizr t-shirt printed for me and a friend similar to the one Keith Wells had back in the 70s (the author of Wizr). I got it done at Virgin Megastore in Dubai Mall and it only took a few minutes to print each t-shirt. It was like an inkjet printer for t-shirts and the quality of the print was pretty incredible.

Has anyone seen anything similar in Kuwait? The printer kind is called a “Direct-to-Garment Printer” but the only ones I’ve seen in Kuwait use heat transfer with an end result that isn’t so great. With direct-to-garment printing, the t-shirt ends up looking like it was printed in a fashion production line.

last time I wanted to print on a tshirt it was at alfaiha co-op upstairs

other than that there is that acc on instagram that does all sorts of printing on clothes

All wizr images and text is still owned by Keith wells. In emails, I tried to attain the rights to them but I felt he was holding out for a richer fan to buy them, Mark be prepared to destroy that image (or pay Keith) if he contacts you……just saying. Last I heard he had moved from aus to nz but he still had his email.

I beg to differ, but it is possible to print on black as well with Direct To Garment printer if there is white head or white ink in the printer which coats initially on which the design later prints.
