Awkward Styles print-on-demand use DTG (direct to garment) and sublimation process for printing on the garment and home living. When we print mostly apparel (shirts, sweaters, tank tops) we use our DTG printers which are Brother (GTXpro) and Kornit (Atlas, Avalanche).
When it comes to our home decor garments (pillows, banners, blanket) we use the sublimation printer Mimaki (TS55-1800). While they all essentially just print we use them all in combination to get the best quality possible.
While we can print with any printer on any product we use their own advantages to our benefit in turn giving us the best garment printed products on the market.
