Our Peregrine x4 is the fastest DTF printer on the market and can deliver 100 full-color 11" x 11" DTF transfers in 30 minutes. For more information, see the Peregrine x4.
A 100-piece order will take about 30 seconds per shirt application. 100 pieces x 30 seconds = 50 minutes. Even if you run at the highest print quality (slowest print speed) and take your time with the pressing, you would produce over 50 shirts per hour! Compared to DTG at 20 prints per hour on their fastest settings (Not including the time to Pretreat). Oh, and don’t forget that DTF inks are generally 50% less than DTG. Our Ultra Bright DTF ink is formulated with more pigment to provide amazing vivid prints every time.
The process is a fully automated in-line production from screen to finished transfers. Just cut into singles and with a quick 10-15 second press you have a finished custom printed garment.
If this is too quick for your current needs, we also offer a cost-effective, two-head version of the Peregrine DTF transfer printer that will print 100 of the same 11” size transfer in 45 min

The Printomize America Difference
CEO Kristian Beasley has 30 years of experience in the garment decorating business with expertise in developing and manufacturing heat-applied transfers and patches for the sportswear industry. He was a pioneer in full digital heat-applied transfers and developed his first digitally printed transfer in 1998 using a Roland PC60 thermal tape printer (before the rise of Inkjet).
With extensive experience in the sports market, that demands lightweight, durable, soft, and stretchy prints – he has developed DTF transfers to the next level with Printomize. In addition, he is the owner of a large garment decorating business offering screen printing, embroidery, heat transfers and DTG. In other words, he understands the needs and challenges of this industry.

“I have seen the future, and the future is DTF,” Beasley explains. “DTG will develop into a great solution for mass production as the technology evolves, and screen printing will always have its place. However, the ability to quicky produce quality full color heat applied custom transfers, that work on almost any fabric, with no pre-treatment - is game changing!”

Benefits from Direct to Film Transfers (DTF)
•Easy, intuitive and fast workflow from art to print
•Automated and scalable process that reduces labor costs.
•DTF will work on almost any fabric and has a much lower application heat - so no heat marks on sensitive fabrics.
•Finished product cost is 75% cheaper than DTG!!!
•Lowest startup cost compared to any other print system.
•Sharper and more vibrant prints compared to DTG.
•Largest industry print size - up to 24 inches wide x unlimited tall.

Challenges with DTG:
•Slow print speed of around 20 full front prints per hour.
•Steep learning curve and expensive equipment cost.
•DTG is mostly limited to 100% cotton and has inconsistent results printing on different fabrics and colors.
•Dark garments need to be pretreated and pressed before printing, which is time and labor consuming.
•Ink and pretreatment costs are expensive. DTF can save you up to 75% on costs!
•Limited to only printing on flat surfaces that fit on the machine.
•Inconsistent and inaccurate colors when printing on white or colors.
Challenges with screen printing:
•Extensive learning curve and requires a lot of expensive equipment.
•Convoluted process from art set up, film printing, screen burning, registration of colors, messy inks, and complex curing. More process, More problems!
•Requires a lot of space and labor costs to efficiently print.
•Set up takes hours for complicated job and custom colors need to be mixed by hand.
•Hard to find qualified and reliable labor for growth.
•Not cost effective for small runs with multiple colors.
•Fabric needs to be single layer and tacked to the pallet. Cannot print on double layered fabric or pockets!
