“We’ve all seen World Series winners, Super Bowl winners, and most recently Argentina hoisting the World Cup in Qatar, and almost like magic, the winner brandishes custom-printed garments after their victory,” said Peter. “On-demand DTG printing offers the speed and versatility to take full advantage of this opportunity, both on and off the field. It is flexible and does not require a minimum quantity. The next World Cup will be here, and the final game played at MetLife Stadium—in New Jersey, a mere 33 miles from our shop. Imagine the logistics of printing gear for competing teams on fanwear or fashion with sustainable, industrial fabrics.
I recently spoke to a customer and friend, Peter Mendez, co-owner of Long Island, New York-based Mendez Printing, a family-run business using digital direct-to-garment (DTG) print technology to create graphically unlimited apparel for schools, sports teams, hospitals, businesses, and other organizations in his community. Like a growing number of Americans, he’s a big soccer fan, and couldn’t help but notice the role of championship merchandise in major events like the recent World Cup.
