Hello, No dtg prints do not peel. Dtg Printing uses water-based inks. The ink is actually absorbed into the t-shirt. Dtg printing is great for 100% cotton and cotton and Polyester blends. I think that you may be thinking about vinyl. Vinyl has a tendency to peel but not Dtg Printing. Let us know if you have any other questions that we can assist you with.
