This eliminates the need to set up Screens, and also means that there are no minimum quantity requirements. You can feasibly print shirts one at a time, allowing for a massive catalog with no minimum requirements.

To the standard screen-printing where the screens have to be made before the job can initiate, DTG printing is a great alternative. To the transfer printing too where initial quantitates need to be larger in order to make them more cost-effective, DTG is a good alternative.
