How does DTF work?
DTF ink or Direct to Film ink allows textile workshops to print designs onto DTF transfer film with a specific coating layer.
Next the film is coated with a layer of hot melt adhesive powder. There are two solutions to fix the DTF powder. Either by manual application or by an automatic shaker.
After these two steps, the operator attaches the transfer film directly to the garment to be personalised using a heat press.
The DTF printing technique offers many advantages compared to printing processes such as screen printing or the direct to garment.
First, the DTF pattern comes out with sharp edges with excellent resolution. All this, without cutting or weeding.
Secondly, the DTF works on all colored backgrounds and various types of textiles like cotton, cotton/polyester blends, lycra…
For printing on a dark background, employ a DTF printer with white ink (W+CMYK). The RIP software transmits the information to the DTF printer. It prints the colours and then the white layer. For garments with a white background, only CMYK inks are needed, no white ink. The backing can be any fabric, like cotton, silk, polyester and more. Therefore, DTF printing works on all colour backgrounds and on the majority of textiles.
