How to Successfully Apply DTF Heat Transfers
When applying DTF Heat Transfers to garments and accessories, you want to ensure they're going to have the high quality and longevity your customers expect. It all comes down to the quality of the actual heat transfer, and the application process. There are a few things to look out for and in this video, Molly covers them all.
Step one, isolate your print area. This ensures you have a flat surface for accurate pressure which is vital for a long-lasting application. Make sure any seams, zips, or collars are off the heat press platen, and just the area you want to print onto is isolated.
Step two, pre-press! Remove any creases and moisture from the garment, and check your pressure is correct before applying your DTF Transfer.
Step three, apply your DTF Transfer. If you are using a quality DTF Transfer like UltraColour Max, this will be a one-step application process. No second fuse necessary. UltraColour Max DTF Transfers have been designed to unlock and adhere at a specific time, temperature, and pressure. 145°C for 12 seconds with a medium pressure and a hot peel.
Following the application instructions for your transfer is the most important element. Also ensuring you have a reliable heat press like a Hotronix for consistent temperature and accurate pressure, is a key element here. Hotronix Heat Presses allow you to have confidence that every application will be of a high-quality and longevity.
