The DTF adhesive powder is applied while the ink is still wet on the printed film. The image and film are then equally coated with the adhesive.

What Is Direct to Film (DTF) Printing?

Direct-to-Film printing, or DTF printing, makes use of a garment printer to produce film transfers that can subsequently be applied to a wide range of substrates using a heat-press mechanism. The Printer DTF method may be used on cotton and poly mixes, in contrast to the DTG process, which exclusively works on cotton materials.

How Does DTF Printing Work?

Direct-to-film (DTF) printing is a heat-transfer printing method. The process starts with printing images onto a transfer film, which is then coated with an adhesive powder and transferred to a substrate such as a fabric with a heat press.

The Coast Imagewear direct-to-film (DTF) solution provides excellent quality results by utilising garment printers that have been specifically created to operate with textile inks and garments, unlike other systems that employ a desktop inkjet printer meant for office paper printing.

What Is Direct to Film DTF Printing

Direct-to-Film (DTF) transfers may be used to design garments in colours including blue, green, red, and yellow as well as a wide variety of textiles (including polyester).

What Makes DTF Special?

  • The ability to print on practically any surface is one of the main reasons why the DTF printer is gaining popularity. DTF printer technology enables you to print on cotton, polyester, synthetic, or silk with ease.
  • Furthermore, DTF printers can print on both dark and white cloth.
  • DTF produces sharp, distinct edges and pictures and doesn’t require pre-treatment, trimming, or weeding.
  • Once properly applied, DTF has a soft feel, excellent elasticity, and is incredibly durable.
  • In general, DTF materials, such as inks and transfer sheets, are less costly and wasteful than both eco-solvent print vinyl and white toner transfer technology supplies. The production of tens, hundreds, or even thousands of transfers is affordable and rapid.

Direct to Film, sometimes referred to as DTF, is a method of applying a graphic to a piece of clothing by printing it on a piece of film using various coloured inks. A heat-press machine uses pressure and heat to attach the pre-printed film to the clothing.
DTF printed clothing has great washing performance. Despite the fact that only a little amount of ink is imprinted on the clothing, the hand feel is excellent. The clothing has a normal hand feel, with a tiny film of hot-melting powder sticking to them.
DTF printing is more flexible than screen printing, allowing you to print in a broader variety of surfaces on the garment. DTF printing is also less costly than screen printing for many types of applications.
DTF printing is a heat transfer technology that can outlast standard screen printing.
Yes. DTF inks are less expensive, and transfer films and hotmelt powder are also available at reasonable costs. Additionally, DTF uses a lot less ink than DTG, particularly less white ink. You don’t need as much white ink as an underbase since the hotmelt powder will bind the inks to the fabric.
Direct to film prints won’t peel or crack. They are flexible, wash well, and are excellent for frequently used work clothing.
A variety of materials, including cotton, nylon, treated leather, polyester, 50/50 mixes, and other light and dark textiles, can be printed with DTF.
Yes. Direct-to-Film (DTF) printing are full-colour heat transfers that can be applied to both bright and dark clothes.
DTF transfers provide the softest feel and touch of any printing method. It doesn’t have a plastic or sticky feel about it.
