How to Correctly Apply Direct to Film Heat Transfers
UltraColour Max Direct to Film (DTF) Heat Transfers have taken the US by storm and they are now available in the UK! This transfer technology allows you to order a minimum of 1 sheet with no colour limitations and a hot peel!
So what exactly are Direct To Film (DTF) Transfers?
Direct to Film Heat Transfers (DTF) are a digitally printed, full colour heat transfer that allows you to put any design, photo, or graphic onto a garment and/or accessory. The process is quite simple really, all you have to do is upload your design to Easy View and we turn it into DTF Transfers that are sent to your door ready to be applied. From there all you need to do is fuse them to the garment using a heat press for 12 seconds.
