Direct-to-Fim (DTF) Printing

What is DTF?
Direct-to-Film (DTF) printing is a process that transfers prints onto fabric or other substrates using a heat press. DTF is a game-changer in custom apparel. Unlike traditional printing methods that apply ink directly onto the garment, DTF prints your design onto a transparent PET film first. This film, loaded with your vibrant design, is transferred onto any material using heat and pressure. The result? A high-resolution, soft-to-the-touch, and durable print that can withstand wash and wear, all while maintaining stunning detail and vibrant colors not possible with traditional screen printing.
Our Process
Our transfers and gang sheets are printed by us in-house on a commercial grade Direct-to-Film printer that is specifically designed for DTF printing. We only use high-quality inks, powder, and film to ensure a professional prints. Our transfers can be peeled while hot, cold, or warm. They can also be applied to all kinds of fabrics, from combed cotton, ring-spun cotton, organic cotton, polyesters, blended fabrics, poly-cottons, tri-blends, polyester-spandex, Lycra, and more! Our transfers are easy to peel and trusted by many businesses and hobbyists alike.
Direct-to-film (DTF) printing offers several benefits over traditional printing methods:

1. Cost-Effectiveness: Unlike screen printing, where setup and run costs can be prohibitive for small batches, Direct-to-film (DTF) printing is more economical, making it feasible to produce large or small quantities of custom apparel without inflated expenses.
 2. Multi-Color Designs: Screen printing requires separate screens and runs for each color, which can escalate costs significantly, especially for designs with numerous colors. DTF printing simplifies this process, allowing for multi-color designs without driving up expenses. 
3. Enhanced Visibility on Dark Fabrics: Dark-colored fabrics pose a challenge for traditional printing methods, often requiring the application of a flash layer to ensure colors show up effectively. DTF printing eliminates this extra step, providing vibrant and clear prints on dark fabrics without incurring additional costs. 
4. Compatibility with Ribbed Fabrics: Unlike screen printing, which may not adhere well to porous or ribbed fabrics like those used in golf or polo shirts, DTF printing offers better compatibility, ensuring high-quality prints on a wider range of materials. 
5. Intricate Design Capabilities: DTF printing excels in reproducing intricate designs with precision and detail, offering possibilities not achievable with traditional screen printing methods. This makes it ideal for intricate artwork, fine lines, and complex graphics that demand high resolution and clarity. 

In summary, Direct-to-film (DTF) printing presents a cost-effective, versatile, and high-quality solution for large or small-scale printing projects, intricate designs, and challenging fabric types, making it a preferred choice for personalized apparel production. These advantages make it a preferred choice for businesses and individuals seeking efficient and high-quality garment decoration.
