­What is DTF Printing?


DTF stands for Direct to Film. This technique prints on a particular transfer film. Artwork is then printed on the reverse side of the film, after which a hot melt powder is applied. The powder is an adhesive, helping the ink bond to the garment when it goes into a heat press. This process can work in colour as well as white ink.


DTF is a very versatile printing method. You can heat press your design onto garments, which works just as well on other materials. You may wonder why it's so versatile. The ink is semi-cured before it is bonded to the garment. This means that hot wet ink doesn't touch the garment. Due to it's nature, when it touches certain materials or fabric dyes it can cause a chemical reaction. This process stops that being possible.

­Here's why you'll love our DTF printing: 


Unmatched Quality: Say goodbye to dull and faded prints. Our direct-to-film printing produces vibrant, high-definition designs that pop off the fabric, giving your personalised clothing a professional and polished look.


Versatility: From intricate designs to bold graphics, our printing method can handle it all. Whether you're printing on cotton, polyester, or a blend of fabrics, our process ensures that your designs come out crisp and clear, no matter the complexity. You can print multicolour and onto any fabrics or colours.


Durability: Our prints are built to last. With superior adhesion and resistance to fading and cracking, your customised clothing will look great wash after wash, wear after wear. The elastic prints wont crack when stretching fabric!
