Warm water, harsh detergents, and aggressive wash cycles can damage both the garment and the transfer itself.

What Are DTF Transfers?

DTF Transfers, which stands for Direct to Film Transfers, are an incredible new way of transferring any image onto any material or color without having to worry about technical printing specs you may have had to worry about in the past.

Every transfer is printed the same way with the same underbase. There are exceptions to this rule of course, but generally speaking, everything is the same on every material you transfer onto, making it much easier to have confidence that all transfers will adhere and appear as you desire on every order.

There is no limit to the color range, number of colors, or quantity that you can order in DTF transfers.  

This wasn't possible with screen printing transfers because you needed to make sure that you were ordering the correct ink type for the garments you would be printing. It would also be quite cost prohibitive to order a small quantity of screen print transfers, especially when ordering a high color count. With DTF transfers, this is a thing of the past.

You no longer have to be a t-shirt genius. Your orders will be more profitable and consistent with DTF transfers.
