dTF Printer Buyer's Guide: Prestige A3+ R
“There is little faith involved in setting out on a journey where the destination is certain and every step in between has been mapped in detail.”
Which DTF Printer is right for you?
Want to see the Prestige A3+ R in action?
What I personally love about this machine is that it not only elevates the quality of work you may be producing currently, it can grow WITH YOU. Many folks have been starting off with the printer alone, but with the addition of an accompanying powder machine, this roll system can really boost the efficiency of your printing workflow. Simply feed your printed graphics into the powder machine to be powdered, agitated, dried, and then wound back up onto a take up reel of ready-to-apply, sell, ship, or store DTF transfers (applicable to virtually any fabric imaginable).
While it is important to understand what this machine IS capable of, let me make this perfectly clear - this printer is not built for speed. It is not a race car. This starter printer for direct to film is more focused on quality over quantity, and should be categorized as a small business production level machine. As a point of reference, an A3 sheet (11” x 17”) at 1440 dpi will print around 10 minutes. That being said, the option to print on a roll is faster, as it cuts out the need to load each individual sheet. Just something to keep in mind to set a reasonable expectation.
All in all, the Prestige A3+ R is a tremendous building block to learning the full direct to film process without the huge investment of a full size production operation. Principles learned at this level can create the foundation for manageable growth and scaling with a more thorough understanding of the process.
