DTF Printing - Getting Started

What is DTF printing?

DTF printing is a fresh and innovative method in the print-on-demand industry. DTF stands for Direct To Film, which means that your design is printed on a film and then transferred to a t-shirt, regardless of the fabric's color, using white as base ink.

Does DTF print last long?

The durability of DTF printing depends on various factors such as the quality of ink/film used, washing/drying methods, and how well the garment is cared for. Since we are using high-quality printing materials for all products, both DTF and DTG prints can last for a long time if they are treated carefully with no doubts.
