What Is DTF Garment Printing?

Direct-to-film printing (AKA DTF printing) uses a specialised printer to create film transfers that can be applied to all sorts of fabrics and materials - including those that are generally tough to decorate, like polyester. DTF printing is a heat-based transfer process that kicks off with printing designs onto transfer film, which is then covered with a thermo-adhesive powder and transferred via a heat press machine to the garment. DTF prints are vivid, high-quality, long-lasting, durable, versatile and compatible with most fabrics.

What’s the Difference Between DTF Garment Printing and DTG (Direct-to-Garment) Printing?

Direct-to-garment (DTG) printing is a method of digital printing that uses specialised inkjet technology to print designs directly onto fabric. While DTF printing and DTG printing have very similar applications and require similar equipment, DTF printing is way more cost-effective and efficient way to reproduce full colour, photographic images on garments and has a range of benefits, including:

  • The ability to decorate synthetic and polyester garments
  • More vibrant colours
  • The ability to save time printing thanks to bulk printing
  • High print stretchiness
  • Ultra fine detail

FAQs About Our DTF Garment Printing

What are the benefits of DTF printing?

DTF printing on apparel offers several benefits, including greater accuracy in colour and design, shorter production times, lower costs, greater longevity, and the ability to print on lighter garments that would otherwise not be suitable for traditional screen printing. Additionally, DTF printing is eco-friendly as it requires less water and energy than traditional garment printing methods. With DTF printing, you can easily produce one-of-a-kind designs without the hassle of setting up screens. The DTF printing process allows for very exact ink quantities, which means vibrant colours, opaque whites as well as remarkably sharp and fine edges. DTF film absorbs almost every drop of colour, so even high levels of detail and colour gradients are no problem. DTF transfers are stretchable and durable, suitable for light and dark textiles, compatible with cotton, polyester, blended fabrics and various other materials, and compatible with all design file formats. 

What sort of garments are suitable for DTF?

DTF printing is suitable for numerous different fabrics and garments, whether the material is coarse or fine. Some of the coarser materials that DTF is suitable for include caps, hats, bags and backpacks. DTF also works well on T-shirts and hoodies, and on finer materials, in particular polyester fibres. DTF is a highly versatile clothing printing option. 

How long do DTF-printed garments last?

When properly cared for, DTF-printed garments can last a long time. The inks used are durable and high-quality, so as long as the garment is washed according to the manufacturer’s instructions, it should retain its original look and feel for many years. Additionally, the print will not crack or fade over time. Generally, you can expect a DTF print to last the lifetime of the apparel. 

What are the qualities of a DTF-printed garment? 

DTF-printed garments are known for their exceptional detail, vivid colours and long-lasting results. The high-resolution dye sublimation printing process ensures crisp details and vibrant colours that will last through multiple washes. Additionally, DTF printing allows you to print on light fabrics such as nylon, spandex and rayon that would otherwise be impossible to screen-print. 

How do I care for a garment printed with DTF?

If you want your DTF-printed garments to last as long as possible, you should wash your DTF items inside out (if possible), in low temperatures. Avoid using a dryer, or exposing the item to direct sunlight. It is also important to avoid using bleach on the garment, as this will cause the colours to fade and deteriorate over time. With the right care, a DTF-printed garment can last for years.
