What does DTF offer that DTG doesn’t, or why choose DTF over DTG?
Starting off with the difference between DTF and DTG. DTF stands for “Direct To Film” meaning the printer heads print upon a film sheet/paper, while DTG stands for “Direct to Garment” meaning the printer prints on a Garment (T-shirt). On a scale, DTF and DTG don’t have much difference when it comes to buying and operating them. On the production side though DTF printers on average offer about 400% faster production, sometimes more depending upon the designs being printed, regardless to say DTF also requires fewer personnel to operate compared to DTG. Moreover, DTF has only 2 procedures: printing the designs and then heat pressing on Garment. On the other hand, DTG requires pre-treatment, heat pressing, printing on the garment, and lastly heat pressing again.
