In digital printing as well as conventional textile printing you either prints before or after the fabric is cut and sewn into a garment.

In DTF, the printing is performed directly on a roll of fabric.  Depending on the type of fabric various ink types are used

Pigment ink is used for cotton fabrics.
Acid dyes works primarily with nylon and silks.
Reactive dyes provides best results on cotton and other viscose materials, and
Disperse dyes (sublimation) are almost exclusively used with polyester.
DTG applications are limited to applications using pigment inks on cotton.  One exception is in the area of decorating polyester sportswear with sublimation DTG printing systems. For DTG, flat screens are utilized and a garment is placed on a platen and then printed directly.
