DTF Print


DTF printing, or Direct to Film printing,

is a relatively new method in the world of garment decoration. It's similar to DTG (Direct to Garment) printing in that it allows for high-quality, full-color prints on textiles. However, instead of printing directly onto the fabric, DTF printing involves printing onto a special heat-transfer film which is then applied to the garment using a heat press.

Here's how the process generally works:

Design Creation: Like with any printing process, you start with creating or obtaining the design you want to print onto the garment.

Film Printing: The design is printed onto a special heat-transfer film using a printer that's equipped with DTF capabilities. This film is usually made of a polyurethane material that can adhere to fabrics when heated.

Film Transfer: Once the design is printed onto the film, it is placed onto the garment in the desired position.

Heat Pressing: The film is then pressed onto the garment using a heat press machine. The combination of heat and pressure causes the film to adhere to the fabric permanently.

Peeling: After the pressing is complete and the garment has cooled down, the protective layer on top of the film is peeled off, leaving behind the vibrant, printed design on the fabric.

DTF printing offers several advantages over traditional methods like screen printing or DTG printing. It allows for printing on a wide range of fabrics, including dark-colored garments, and can produce high-quality, detailed prints with vibrant colors. Additionally, DTF printing doesn't require pre-treating the garment like DTG printing often does, making it a bit faster and more cost-effective for certain projects.
