Direct to Film transfers are a great way to get accurate and reliable results when transferring artwork onto a variety of substrates. The process involves the direct transfer of an artwork onto a specially coated film, which is then applied directly to the substrate. This allows for an extremely high resolution image that can be accurately reproduced from the original artwork without any loss of detail. DTF transfers are especially popular for heat transfer applications, as they provide a durable and vibrant finish. Additionally, DTF transfers can be used in a variety of other applications such as screen printing, embroidery, and even lithography – providing the most accurate result possible from any artwork source. DTF is an ideal choice for those looking to achieve a professional-looking finish on their products or garments.
The DTF process has several advantages over traditional methods; firstly, DTF allows for higher resolution images as well as more vibrant colours due to the specialised film coating. Secondly, it is extremely durable and long lasting – making it perfect for applications that require frequent washing or handling. Lastly
Digital Transfers (DTF) Application
Application Guidelines for Digital Transfers (DTF)
We ask during purchase if it will be applied to a light or dark shirt. If unsure, choose the dark option. We add an additional step for dark shirts to prevent dye migration through any white areas of the design. Without this additional step, white ink applied to a black shirt will dull the white. We want the colors to be as vibrant as possible! Both types of Digital Transfers apply the same.

Although pressing issues are uncommon, If your transfer attempts to lift when removing the clear film BE SURE IT IS COMPLETELY COOL BEFORE ATTEMPTING REMOVAL! Otherwise, you may need to increase your heat by 10 degrees, pressing time by 10 seconds or pressure. Digital Transfers are very forgiving and can tolerate a temperature or pressing time a little longer than listed. These are guidelines – you should always test with your own equipment before attempting a full project.
To complete the curing to the shirt, be sure to do a second press of 10 seconds. Covering with parchment paper or butcher paper is needed for this step
