WHAT IS DTF AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
DTF or Direct Film transfers is the newest innovation in the printing industry. This new process will make your custom orders a breeze! Just drop your artwork into the box we provided and let us do the work for you. All you need is a heat press!
DTF is an alternative process to DTG, (Direct to Garment.) and screen printing. It uses water-based ink that is printed on a release film that is then applied with adhesive glue and cured thru a dryer. This new technology gives the customer the choice to print full-color transfers to apply to dark or light garments on cotton, polyester, 50/50, nylon, etc. With no minimums!
DTF transfers give you the edge on your competition with sharp, colorful prints that look amazing on all sorts of fabrics!
