DTF - Transfer printing

DTF printing ("Direct-to-Film") has your design digitally printed onto a carrier film and then pressed onto the product under heat. The advantages are:

  • brilliant prints, including fine lines
  • absolutely colourfast
  • extreme durability

For special materials – direct-to-film

The DTF process is especially suitable when a tougher material is being printed. Caps and bags are a prime example here. We also use the direct-to-film process instead of digital-direct printing with the particularly fine fibres of polyester shirts.

Here's what you need to keep in mind with your designs

For perfect print result with the direct-to-film method, your designs need a few prerequisites.

  • transparent backgrounds
  • best possible resolution
  • semi-transparency
  • no line thickness less than 1 mm
