What is DTF printing?

DTF (Direct to Film) printing systems have revolutionized the textile printing industry, offering a versatile and efficient solution. Our company extends these services across America, where DTF Transfer is reshaping the landscape of textile printing. Traditional methods such as screen printing or DTG (Direct to Garment) are now complemented by DTF's quicker and simpler process, yielding significant savings in time, resources, and labor.

This innovative system enables printing on a vast array of textile products and fabrics, across any desired area. The process involves transferring prints from PET film, created by a DTF printer, onto the fabric using a heat press. The result is a vibrant print that resists stretching and tearing, ensuring longevity and durability.

We value detailed specifications, ensuring all nuances and preferences are addressed. Orders are processed promptly, transformed into transfer paper via a temperature-controlled system, and swiftly delivered for client use. This service allows for the application of prints to various clothing items and textiles at one's convenience.

Requirements for DTF Printing:

To achieve the best results with a DTF printer, the following components are essential:

  • DTF Printer: The core of the process, specialized for DTF printing.
  • PET Film: The medium onto which the print is initially transferred.
  • Powder (Glue): Used to adhere the print to the textile.
  • Heat Press: Ensures the transfer of the print from the PET film to the fabric.
  • Textile Product: The final substrate for the print.

The process begins with the preparation of the digital image, followed by processing in a RIP machine for print readiness. The DTF printer then transfers the print onto PET film. After a confectionery and drying process, the print is applied to the desired textile using the heat press.
