What are DTF Transfers?
DTF Transfers, standing for Direct to Film Transfers, represent a revolutionary printing technology for producing high-quality designs on various materials. This process involves directly printing specialized ink onto a dedicated transfer film, which is heat-pressed to transfer the design onto garments or other items. DTF technology offers greater flexibility and precision than traditional screen printing and heat transfers, producing designs with rich colors and intricate details. This makes DTF Transfers an ideal solution for personalized designs and small-scale customization, suitable for various fabric types including cotton, polyester, and blends—for example Custom DTF Hat Heat Transfers.
Hat Heat Transfers
Hat Heat Transfers are a straightforward and efficient process. Initially, the desired design is printed onto the transfer film using a specialized DTF printer. Subsequently, a layer of powder glue is evenly applied over the printed design, aiding in better adhesion of the design to the shirt during the heat press process. Next, the prepared transfer film is placed in a heat press machine for heating and pressing, ensuring the design is firmly transferred onto the shirt. After the heat press, the film is removed, leaving behind a crisp, vibrant design. This process not only retains the color and details of the design but also results in a shirt that maintains high quality and durability even after multiple washes.
