Frequently Ask Questions
What Is Direct To Film Printing?
DTF printing involves of using a heat press to transfer inks from a specialized transfer film onto a substrate. The adhesive properties of the hot melt powder on the film come into play, and after the process cools to room temperature, the film can be easily peeled off.
What is the Appropriate Temperature for Heat Press?
When applying DTF transfers, use a heat press with medium to firm pressure. Set the temperature to 320-350°F for cotton and 50/50 blends, and 280-300°F for synthetic or polyester fabrics. Begin by prepressing the fabric for 2 to 3 seconds, then press the transfer onto the fabric for 10 to 15 seconds.
What is the Difference Between Hot Peel and Cold Peel DTF Film?
A hot peel involves immediate peeling right after the heat pressing, while a cold peel necessitates a brief cooling interval, typically lasting around 5 to 10 seconds post-pressing. It's worth noting that the term "cold peel" doesn't imply the transfer must be completely cold. Generally, individuals tend to favor the hot peel approach, as it results in a print with a softer tactile sensation. Conversely, the cold peel method yields a finish that is more glossy and has a slightly thicker texture.
Is DTF Limited to just Cotton or Polyester Shirts?
In contrast to other printing techniques such as direct-to-garment (DTG) or dye-sublimation, DTF transfers have the versatility to be applied to a wide range of fabric types, encompassing cotton, 50/50 blends, polyester, and tri-blends.
How is DTF Different from Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV)?
Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV) application is a conventional technique that encompasses cutting designs from sheets of heat-sensitive vinyl material. These designs are subsequently placed onto clothing using a heat press machine. Although HTV provides satisfactory color vibrancy and durability, it frequently necessitates a weeding step - the task of eliminating surplus vinyl material from the design - which can be time consuming.
Must I Apply a DTF Transfer As Soon As It Is Printed?
You have the option to either heat press a DTF transfer immediately upon its preparation or to store it for future application. This flexibility enables you to pre-print designs and images for subsequent use or to create.
How to Use Direct To Film Transfers
DTF printing follows a fairly straightforward procedure: Create your design, Print it onto the DTF transfer paper, apply heat and pressure to transfer the design onto the fabric, take off the transfer paper, and let the design cool. This is a straightforward method that can be followed by anyone.
