DTF Printing is a revolutionary technology that combines a heat transfer element with a direct to transfer printer to bring your designs to life. Direct to Film (the meaning of DTF) is a process where you print an artwork on a special film and transfer said film onto fabric or other textiles utilizing a powder adhesive. NO PRETREATING NECESSARY! To successfully use DTF you print on the specialized film, apply the hot melting powder onto the wet ink, and melt or cure the powder. After melting you are free to use a heat press to transfer the print onto many different mediums (shirts, polyester jackets, treated leather, etc). Then, simply peel off the film (hot or cold, depending on the dtf film type) to leave your awesome DTF design.
