TEXTEK DTF Printer
DTF, also known as direct transfer film, works by heat pressing the transfer onto a variety of garments (and other substrates). There are many compatible fabrics, including cotton, nylon, leather, polyester and 50/50 blends. This is in contrast to DTG technology, which is only available for cotton fabrics. As a result, this means that the printer can work on a wider range of substrates, making it the most versatile digital printer on the market. DTF printers are available for white and dark garments.

DTF Printing Technology
- No pre-treatment: In DTF printing, there is no need to pre-treat the fabric as it is pre-printed on film and must be transferred.
- Printing on film: In DTF, we print on film and then the design must be transferred to the fabric. This can make the process a little longer compared to DTG.
- Adhesive powder: This type of printing requires the use of gum powder, which is applied immediately after the ink is printed on the film. On printers created for DTF, this step is included in the printer itself, so you can avoid any manual steps.
- Using white ink: In this case, it is necessary to use a layer of white ink, placed on top of the color layer. This is the one that is transferred to the fabric and used as the basis for the main color of the design.
- Any type of fabric: One of the advantages of DTF is that it allows you to use any type of fabric, not just cotton.
- Transfer from film to fabric: The final step of the process is to remove the printed film and transfer it to the fabric using a press.
