RTP Apparel was launched in early 2016 with the first commercially available DTG Ready To Print shirt that started a revolution in the on-demand printing. Back then the technology used to manufacture our award winning shirts was in its early stages - yet we were able to produce a truly functional DTG garment for the commercial market.
What most people do not realize is that over the past 5 years we have been working diligently on improving the RTP Apparel products. Ever order, every shirt we have worked to improve on our original success. We are now in our 7th Generation Ready To Print shirt.
Almost 5 years ago when we launched the RTP Apparel 1600 Series shirt we did not know the reception that we would get. However, that did not stop us from pursuing the ultimate Ready To Print fabric and performance for the DTG industry. The goal was to make pretreating obsolete since no one really likes to pretreat a shirt prior to printing. It is messy and time consuming but a necessary evil to be contended with in our pursuit of DTG. This has been our goal ever since the beginning. To improve the DTG printing industry one shirt at a time. Making small improvements with each new batch of shirts we produce.
Our 1% improvement in ourselves, our products, and to our customers on a daily basis.
Well, we are excited to reveal that we just finished ANOTHER shelf life test on one of our original batches of Retail shirts we sold - this was over 57 months ago... 4 Years - 9 Months. And the results are still incredible as can be seen in the photo.
Now, almost 5 years and many iterations in improvements and revisions later, we are excited to showcase that we've vastly improved the RTP Apparel line in fabric feel, print quality, sizing, performance, manufacturing processes and usability. We've been successful in bringing the Direct To Printing market a product that really can simplify the DTG process. The makes the current generation of RTP Apparel a much better printing experience than our original shirts in 2016.
There's still a long way to go. We will NEVER be done working to improve our products and our business.
And we are not done yet. 2021 is going to be an exciting year for RTP Apparel and those with DTG printers. Not only are we planning on expanding our product line to include additional styles, BUT we are planning on changing the way certain products are printed in DTG with all new technology we've been working on for years and is patent pending.
We believe that as long as our company works together, listens to our customers, and strive to produce the highest quality performing product we we will take DTG to the DTG experience to the next level and make 2021 the year of DTG printing.
We hope that you join us in this journey. We are THE ONLY company in the apparel industry (and world for that matter) that can say we have a tested and proven SHELF LIFE of almost 5 years (under normal storage conditions) as can be seen in our photos above. RTP Apparel may be a small player in the apparel industry, but we have GLOBAL ambitions and plan on changing the industry each and every day.
This is our commitment to you. The challenge to ourselves.
