What is DTF Transfer Printing? Process Explained (Video)

You've probably heard the new "buzz" term "DTF" around the crafting and small business industry growing increasingly more frequent.  Today I'm going to not only explain, but show you the DTF transfer printing process.

You'll see how DTF is so useful especially with full color designs that you want to put on dark or cotton shirts, or when you don't feel like weeding or when it's nearly impossible to cut and layer. 

There are currently a handful of desktop DTF printers available (and I have several of them: Roland BN-20D, Prestige A3+, Uninet 100 and Epson F2100 (DTF and DTG combo printer) for small businesses. 

The low price point of about $3500 and the routine maintenance required puts them out of what I would ever recommend for a hobby crafter (and there are other options if you want DTF transfers but won't be printing regularly). However if you have a small t shirt business and you're looking to grow by offering darks and cotton shirts, a direct to film printer is something to consider.
