What is custom dtf transfer printing?
Direct to film printing is a printing technique that uses a digital image to create a printed image directly onto a film substrate. This process is used to create high-quality prints for a variety of applications, including medical imaging, graphic design, and photography. The process begins with a digital image file, which is then converted into a digital format that is compatible with the printer.
Each 15"x12" (printable area of 12") DTF sheet is $7. Your submitted designs are ganged (combined) before printing while passing the space savings to you. Each graphic will be separated by a 0.4" border.
