Brother DTG Launches New Page On How To Digitally Print on Shoes

One of the most versatile uses of a Brother GTX digital direct-to-garment printer is for decorating shoes. Combined with the optional shoe platen and the Acculine Camera System, it’s easy to do and production friendly. Because the GTX has a large head print-to-substrate gap, it’s possible to print over seams, zippers and even shoe eyelets.

Recently, Brother DTG created a dedicated page on its website with videos and step-by-step tutorials demonstrating exactly how to print on shoes. It covers the process including masking, pretreatment, preparing the platen, loading, positioning, settings and finally curing.
