Polyprint introduces DTF Xpress, a Direct-to-Film printing solution that can be used by TexJet DTG printer users. Why choose between Direct-to-Film or Direct-to-Garment printing, when they can have both?
Print on multiple textiles
TexJet DTG printer users can now take advantage of the new trending process and print DTF transfers on dark or light polyester, nylon and multiple other fabrics, quickly and productively. They will now be able to broaden their product portfolio with customized sportswear, hats, professional clothing and more, without changing DTG printers nor their ink setup.
DTF is a process that allows users to produce textile transfers. The digitally printed film is transferred onto a garment with the help of an adhesive powder and a heat press, producing within a few minutes a high-quality result.
To print DTF TexJet DTG users will need DTF Xpress Transfer Film, DTF Xpress Adhesive Powder, a reusable DTF Xpress Antislip Pad (optional accessory to keep the film flat and steady during printing) and DTF Xpress RIP Print Modes (for Cadlink DFA v10 – Polyprint Edition, via a free driver update).
Easily and cost-effectively print
“This new printing process gives the opportunity to DTG users to easily and cost-effectively print DTF and transfer their designs on multiple textiles. They can create personalized t-shirts, bags, pet clothing and even place small logos in specific places (e.g., sleeves, pockets etc.) productively, using their current TexJet DTG printer.” says Dimitris Stavrakidis, Polyprint’s Technical Support Engineer.
“The DTF Xpress solution we provide, helps our existing customers grow without the need to invest in new equipment. DTF is a fairly simple process that can easily be adopted by existing TexJet DTG users. It, essentially, complements DTG printing by producing fantastic prints on numerous textiles, without the need to pretreat” states George Benglopoulos, Polyprint’s CEO.
DTF Xpress solution is compatible with all TexJet DTG printers running Cadlink Digital Factory Apparel V.10 Polyprint Edition – RIP software. In order to use the DTF print modes, a printer driver update will be required.
