What is Direct-To-Film (DTF) Garment Decoration? 

It’s the newest technology for transfer-based full-color garment decoration. 

We can produce brilliant full-color designs:

How many colors can my image have?

Your design image can have as many colors as are in the rainbow. You can use a full-color photograph as a design image if you wanted to.

What file types are best to send for DTF Printing?

Although we can print any image file for DTF, not all file types will produce great results. For crisp images with no semitransparent pixels, please use:

  • .png files with 300 dpi resolution

  • Vector files like .ai (Adobe Illustrator)

  • .psd file (Photoshop)

Why should I use a transparent background?

DTF printing software does not distinguish between the design and the background. If you send an image with a white background, the print will print that background and you will end up with a transfer that has a white rectangle around your design.

What is a gang sheet?

A gang sheet is a transfer sheet that has multiple designs printed together. This is a more economical way to print transfers when compared to printing your design one at a time. 

When sending a gang sheet, please make sure that they meet the following criteria:

  • .png with 300 dpi, vector file, Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator file

  • designs in actual print dimensions (length and width)

  • Transparent background

When sending your designs (unganged), please make sure that they meet the following criteria:

  • .png with 300 dpi, vector file, or photoshop file
  • Transparent background
  • Also make sure to include the print dimension for each design and how many copies 

What print dimensions should I use when creating my gang sheet?

You should use a maximum width of 22 inches and a maximum height of 60 inches (22” x 60”).
