In the field of textile and clothing embellishment, Direct To Film (DTF), sometimes referred to as DTF printing, is a cutting-edge and contemporary technique. The efficiency and versatility of this technology have led to its rapid rise in popularity. Vibrant and intricate designs are produced by the direct-to-garment (DTF) printing method, which transfers ink from a unique film to the fabric’s surface.

Direct to Film

Overview of the Digital Design Process

Initial Design Production

  • The process begins with the creation of a digital design.

Printing on Heat-Sensitive Film

  • A specialized DTF (Direct to Film) printer prints the design onto a heat-sensitive film.
  • This film precisely holds the ink and acts as a transfer medium for the design.

Transferring the Design

  • The printed film is then carefully transferred to the fabric.
  • A heat press is used to apply heat, activating the ink on the film for transfer to the fabric.

Final Outcome

  • The heat activation produces a superb, full-color print directly on the fabric.
  • The result is a detailed pattern with a wide color palette, showcasing DTF’s unique capability.
