Learn More About Our Direct-To-Film Decoration Method

Direct To Film Offers Brilliant full-color prints, a lightweight, stretchable, & soft feel, and will continue to look great through dozens of wash cycles.
How does it work?

DTF printers lay down the colors in a blend of CMYK colors with the first printhead and then lays down a white under base on top of the colors. The alignment is on the film, rather than on the bumpy fabric of the shirts so it creates a crisp design edge that you can’t even get with traditional screen printing. It can be compared to a reduced version of screen printing.
Soft To The Touch

It’s the unique powder adhesive coating that gives DTF prints their signature soft touch. Instead of thick transfer films, or vinyl, the Direct to Film Process has only two ingredients. The ink, and a thin coating of powdered adhesive.
The Holy Grail Of Apparel Decoration

The soft hand of DTF is holy grail of custom apparel. It’s never been possible to get the incredibly soft feel of half-tone screen printing in a transfer process. But with DTF, you get all that and more.
