Direct-to-Film (DTF) transfers are full-color heat-applied transfers for light and dark garments. No weeding or masking is required and DTF transfers can be applied to a various number of fabric types, including but not limited to, cotton, cotton/poly blends, and even 100% polyester. DTF transfers can also be applied to epoxied tumblers.
POLY & TRI BLENDS: 275 F for 10 seconds
50/50: 300 F for 12 seconds
COTTON: 325 F for 15 seconds
Metal Tumblers: 325 F for 15 seconds
For a matte look for the transfer, press a second time with Kraft Paper for 10 seconds.
DTF Transfer Application Instructions
- Preheat the garment for 15 seconds to remove excess moisture. Let the garment cool before adding the transfer.
- Place the transfer on the shirt- white side down, image facing up.
- Press at 325° for 15 seconds under very firm pressure. (An easy press may not provide adequate pressure for DTF)
- Remove the garment from the press and let it stand until it is cool enough to peel.
- Peel once cool. ** Please note: If the image does not come off completely, repress with the transfer in place, let it cool, and re-peel the film.**
Cover the image with parchment paper and press again for 15 seconds. You can use a Teflon sheet, butcher paper, or tissue paper.
Turn the garment inside out. Machine wash cold. No bleach No softener. Do not dry clean or iron. Tumble dry low.
Cotton and Blends:
300-315/325 F for 10-12s Second press 5-10s Medium pressure is best. Hoodies may require 325 and up, medium press 10-12s
265-275/285 F for 8-10s Med-Light pressure, (if they are thinner), otherwise, it creates a box or scorches the transfer.
Polyester settings may vary a lot, but best to use lower temp and pressure generally.
275/285 F for 8-10s Med-Light pressure, (if they are thinner), otherwise, it creates a box or scorches the transfer.
Matte finish: Cover sheet; Kraft/Parchment paper cover sheet, rougher texture.
Shiny/Gloss Finish: Teflon sheet
Thicker fabrics require more heat, generally.
Hats (poly) may require 245-250 for 5-8s, Umbrellas, EZ-Ups, and Stadium chairs will require testing, trial, and error.
Do a 24hr test (fine tuning) for a day to see if the ink migrates (clothing dye reacts with DTF ink)
