DTF transfers have become immensely popular in our crafting community thanks to the easy and fast application each transfer has to offer! Welcome to an apparel decorating technique that requires no weeding, no designing, and very little time to your finished product!
DTF transfers are a type of garment transfer that has been printed using a water based DTF ink printed onto a clear release paper. This allows the end user the flexibility of when the transfer is applied and what the transfer is applied to. DTF transfers can be made in single color or full color images. Keep in mind that full color transfers will feel slightly thicker than single color transfers simply because more ink is used to create the transfer itself, but we do pride ourselves with having some of the thinnest full color DTF transfers on the market. DTF transfers from Direct Vinyl Supply can be applied to any cotton, polyester, or cotton-poly blend materials.
All Direct Vinyl Supply DTF transfers require the use of a commercial grade heat press due to the high, even pressure that is needed for correct application. Home irons and Cricut Easy Presses WILL NOT work.
While not necessary, parchment sheets or parchment paper can be used as a protective covering when pressing. If you are pressing your DTF transfer without the clear transfer paper (such as a second press) be sure to use a parchment sheet or parchment paper to protect your heat press. Be advised that pressing pillows can negatively affect the application and these should be used at your own risk
Pressing Temperature: 285°
Pressing Time: 10 seconds
Finish off with a second press with parchment paper on top.
*These settings are recommendations only and will greatly depend on your heat press. If you are not familiar with pressing DTF transfers from Direct Vinyl Supply, we recommend completing a few test presses to ensure the correct temperature, time, and pressure for your heat press.
