Direct to Film Transfers (DTF) Offers Huge Benefits for Garment Printers

The revolution is here - DTF is the solution we have all been waiting for!  If you are new and just starting in garment decorating, DTF is the answer! 

If you are an experienced Screen Printer, DTF will make you more profitable!  DTF makes the process of smaller run, 5+ color jobs more efficient and unrestricted. 

Here are a few points to consider:

• 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.
• We also offer our exceptional DTF transfers, delivered fast - so you can sell DTF with no commitment.

Print at lightning speed with our industrial printers

Our 4-head printer can deliver 100full-color11.7” x 11.7”, ready to press transfers in 30 to 45 minutes (depending on print settings). 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 around 50% less than DTG.

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 11.7” size transfer in 50-80mins.

Print Systems for Smaller Shops and Home Businesses

If you have a small shop, work out of your home, or just want to create transfers for your own clothing line - Printomize offers a range of starter products that are very affordable for everyone. You can start creating DTF transfers with an investment as low as $2495.00.

Our Eyas DTF transfer printer package (as with all our systems) includes software, ink, film, adhesive powder, and phone/chat support (free in-house set up for local customers). Buy this package and you are ready to take orders for transfers, and if you have a heat press, you can be printing garments in no time.

If you want to add a heat press, we offer a wide range from our cost-effective MEM brand or the legendry USA made Insta presses (best on the market!) starting at $795.00 here and here.

But what about Screen Printing?

Screen Printing will always have its place with large volumes, but the market is becoming more on demand than ever.

Customers don’t want to hold inventory and need orders turned around at lightning speed. DTG was thought to solve these challenges, but we now see it has many variables and limitations. With years of experience printing DTG, we can assure you there is no controllable consistency with this process.

Here are some of the 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.

Here are some of the 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!

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 sportwear 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.
