What is Direct To Film (DTF) Printing?

Direct To Film (DTF) printing is a method in which designs are printed onto a special film and then transferred onto fabric using heat and pressure. Unlike traditional printing techniques, DTF printing doesn’t require pre-treated fabrics, making it suitable for a wide range of textiles. The process involves printing a design with DTF-specific inks onto a PET film, coating it with adhesive powder, and then heat-pressing it onto the fabric.
