Can a DTG printer be used for DTF printing?
DTG printing is still a highly appreciated printing technique thanks to its soft feel. This process makes it possible to create individual textile customisations up to a medium series.
However, DTG only works on cotton textiles. The DTF transfer can be applied to the majority of supports such as organic cotton to cotton/polyester mix.
You can easily perform DTF printing with a Brother GTX Pro printer or any other DTG printing system (except Kornit). All without changing ink, RIP and above all without having to apply DTG pre-treatment.
The main DTF compatible DTG printers.
Both DTG printing and DTF use the inkjet printing process. The only difference is that DTF or Direct-To-Film printing prints directly onto PET film. While the DTG or Direct To Garment marks directly on the garment. This similarity makes it possible to use the main DTG printing systems such as:
- Brother GTX Pro Bulk Textile Printer ;
- Brother GTX Pro DTG Printer ;
- Brother GTX ;
- Epson SureColor F3000 ;
- Epson SureColor F2100 ;
- Epson SureColor F2000 ;
- RICOH Ri 6000 ;
- RICOH Ri 2000 ;
- RICOH Ri 1000.
Only Kornit printers are not compatible with DTF.
How to Dry DTF Powder?
Successful drying typically gives a very smooth and shiny appearance. If your powder keeps grainy, it lacks curing. Unlike drying too long which yellows the bright white or ripples the PET transfer film.
