Information

Discussing DTF (Direct-to-Film) printing vs. DTG (Direct-to-Garment, Direct Jet) printing begs the question: "What are the advantages of DTF technology?" High quality full size prints that are very soft to the touch, but DTF printing definitely has some advantages that make it the perfect addition to your garment printing business.

 

DTF printing involves printing the design onto a special film, applying and melting a powder adhesive onto the printed film, and then pressing the design onto the garment or merchandise. You will need DTF printer, DTF ink, DTF film and hot melt powder, as well as software to create your prints - no other special equipment required! Below, we discuss 7 advantages of this new technology.

 

 

A. Suitable for a variety of materials

While DTG printing works best on 100% cotton, DTF is suitable for many different garment materials: cotton, nylon, treated leather, polyester, 50/50 blends, and light and dark fabrics. You can expand your inventory by using DTF to apply your designs to a variety of items.

 

B. No preprocessing required

If you already own a DTG printer, you're probably very familiar with the preprocessing process (not to mention drying times). The hot melt capability applied to the DTF transfer bonds the print directly to the material, meaning no pretreatment is required.

 

C. Save white ink

DTF requires less white ink - about 40% white, while DTG printing requires 200% white. White ink tends to be the most expensive because it is used more and the pigment is titanium oxide, so reducing the amount of white ink used for printing can save a lot of money.

 

 

D. More durable than DTG printing

There is no denying that DTG prints have a soft, almost non-touch feel as the ink is applied directly to the garment. While DTF printing doesn't have the soft feel that DTG boasts, the transfer is more durable. Transfer directly to film washes well and is flexible, Which means they won't crack or peel and great for heavily used items.

 

E. Easy to apply

Printing onto film transfers means you can place your designs on hard-to-reach surfaces. If the area can be heated, you can apply a DTF design to it! Because only heat is required to adhere the design, you can even sell the printed transfer directly to your client and allow them to place the design on any surface or item of their choice, no special equipment required!

 

F. Faster production process

Since you can eliminate the steps of pre-treating and drying your garments, you can significantly reduce production time. That's good news for one-off or low-volume orders that have traditionally been unprofitable.

 

G. Helps diversify your inventory

While it might not be feasible to print a bunch of your most popular designs on every size or color garment, with DTF printing you can print popular designs ahead of time and use very little space for storage. Then you can always have your bestsellers ready to work on any outfit as needed!
