Direct Film Transfer (DFT) printing stands as an innovative technology, revolutionizing the custom apparel industry by offering a versatile and efficient solution for full-color printing on t-shirts and various clothing items. Unlike traditional screen printing, which necessitates individual screens for each color and faces limitations with intricate designs, DFT printing simplifies the process. It involves printing a digital design directly onto a special film, which is then heat sealed onto the fabric of the garment. This approach enables the creation of vibrant, high-resolution images with a broad spectrum of colors and intricate details.

About The Process

The process commences with digitally printing the design onto a clear film coated with a light adhesive. DTF's adaptability is rooted in its utilization of a specialized ink capable of adhering to diverse fabric types, including cotton, polyester, and blends. Following ink application, a powder adhesive is added to the back of the printed film and cured to ensure a secure bond between the ink and adhesive. At Stay Golden Custom, our DFT transfers are crafted in-house using cutting-edge production equipment.

The final stage entails transferring the design from the film to the fabric via heat and pressure applied by our professional-grade heat presses. Our laser alignment system ensures precise positioning of the transfer on the garment for consistent and even placement. As heat activates the adhesive, the design bonds firmly to the fabric, while pressure ensures uniform embedding across the surface.

DTF printing excels in producing intricate, long-lasting, and vivid designs that endure multiple washes without fading or cracking. It's especially beneficial for short production runs, custom designs, or samples, where the setup time and costs associated with traditional screen printing methods pose challenges.
