Direct to Film Garment Printing | DTF

SKU: Branding to Quote

Product Description

Direct to film or DTF printing is a type of branding where by artwork is printed onto a clear film using a special printer. This film passes through an adhesive powder which coats the film with glue. The film then passes through a shaker which removes excess glue. In the final steps the film passes through a heat cure to dry and set the print. Once cooled the artwork is cut out & then applied to the garment using a heat press.

Pros :

  • equally suitable for small & large print runs
  • ideal for artwork with lots of colours or fine detail
  • less costly setup fees compared to screen printing

Cons :

  • coarse fabrics will produce variations in print output due to fabric texture

Please keep in mind DTF printing is a multi-step print process involving several machines. It is likely when you receive your garments that they may have a "bruise" around the print area. This is totally normal. After the first wash the bruise will reduce & in most cases disappear.
