Transferring a finished print to a garment is simple and can be done immediately after DTF printing and curing, or up to a month later. Longer storage times may be possible if carefully stored in an air-tight container and in a climate-controlled environment.
- Prepare your heat press for a DTF image transfer.
- Cut out the image that you want to transfer to a garment from the film roll or sheet.
- Place the garment to receive the image transfer onto the heat press.
- Place the DTF print on the garment, with the ink & glue side of the film directly against the fabric, positioned exactly where you want it transferred.
- Press the transfer onto the fabric using the above temperature, pressure, and duration.
- Remove the garment from the heat press, lay it on a clean, flat, hard surface, and carefully peel the film away from the garment at a moderate rate.
- Place the shirt back on the heat press with a sheet of parchment or Kraft paper between the shirt and the top of the heat press, then perform a final “finish” press for an additional 20 seconds at the same temperature and pressure as the transfer. This further cures the surface of the print and creates a smoother transition between ink & fabric.
The transfer process is now complete!
